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 fundamentally links Scent to a diverse set of EU-funded research projects and to a global movement/campaign is the theme of citizen science and its development as a citizen observatory project.
Last month, Andrea Cuoghi from Scent partner organisation U-Hopper, attended a round table with EU-funded digital platform Commonfare and local stakeholders in Trentino (Italy) in the interest of Scent and with the importance of making citizen observatory digital tools available to people across Europe in mind, to further develop projects like Scent.
In the first of our ‘Spotlight’ series with Scent partners, we spoke to XTeam Software, a software development company based in Veneto, Italy.
