As 5G is gearing up for market deployment to incorporate realistic business cases, Europe is taking steps to lead global developments. The materialisation of the fifth generation of telecommunications systems, which will provide ultra-high bandwidth, massive machine to machine communications and low latency connectivity, hinges on the development of network applications (NetApps). The EU-funded EVOLVED-5G project will upgrade the 5G experimentation potential in Europe and materialise the openness of 5G to vertical industries by creating a NetApp development and verification environment. It will also enable the digital market around NetApp designing. Quantifying the performance and flexibility that 5G provides to verticals is also planned, as is maximisation of the business potential from the integration of 5G in manufacturing.
PHYSICS empowers European CSPs(Cloud Service Providers) to exploit the most modern, scalable&cost-effective cloud model(FaaS), operated across multiple service &hardware types, provider locations, edge&multi-cloud resources. To this end, it applies a unified continuum approach, including functional & operational management across sites & service stacks, performance through the relativity of space (location of execution) & time(of execution), enhanced by the semantics of application components&services.
aerOS overarching goal is to design and build a virtualized, platform-agnostic meta-operating system for the IoT edge-cloud continuum. As a solution, to be executed on any Infrastructure Element within the IoT edge-cloud continuum hence, independent from underlying hardware and operating system(s) aerOS will: (i) deliver common virtualized services to enable orchestration, virtual communication (network-related programmable functions), and efficient support for frugal, explainable AI and the creation of distributed data-driven applications; (ii) expose an API to be available anywhere and anytime (location-time independent), flexible, resilient and platform-agnostic; and (iii) include a set of infrastructural services and features addressing cybersecurity, trustworthiness and manageability.
A secure and decentralized programmability framework for edge devices. The OASEES project aims to create a new programmability framework that will allow edge devices to work together in a decentralized and secure way, using advanced technologies such as AI/ML accelerators (FPGAs, SNNs, Quantum) and a privacy-preserving Object ID federation process. This framework will be fully open-source and developed specifically for Europe.
The horizon-trustee project proposes a secure by design Federated Platform that complies with the EU guidelines for architecture and data management. The platform will be capable of ensuring interoperability, enabling cross-border scenarios and scaling a variety of AI-based applications through the use of open APIs. Trustee will utilize self-sovereign technologies and SOTA homomorphic encryption to create a socially and environmental-aware framework for cross discipline federation of data.
FAME is a joint effort of world-class experts in data management, data technologies, the data economy, and digital finance to develop, deploy and launch to the global market a unique, trustworthy, energy-efficient, and secure federated data marketplace for Embedded Finance (EmFi). The FAME marketplace will alleviate the proclaimed limitations of centralized cloud marketplaces towards demonstrating the full potential of the data economy. Furthermore, FAME will establish a Learning Center (LC) for tech and non-tech users, as this is a key prerequisite for unlocking the potential of the data economy. FAME will build a vibrant community of EmFi stakeholders around the FAME platform, which will serve as a catalyst for the sustainability of the project’s results.
