Our Second ‘Spotlight’ entry focuses on the work of ICCS, the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems, a research institute based in Athens. ICCS conducts research across several application areas, including security, transport, logistics and the environment. For the latter, ICCS interests include information and communication technologies for environmental applications, including sensors, sensor networks and embedded devices.
What kind of data is at the heart of the entire Scent project? Citizen-generated data (CGD).
CGD is how the Scent project will develop a “people-centred” web for monitoring the environment around us.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 688930.
