SOPRANO is an Integrated Project and started 1st January 2007. SOPRANO stands for “Service-oriented Programmable Smart Environments for Older Europeans” and is an Integrated Project in the European Commission’s 6th Framework Programme (IST Priority 6th Call on Ambient Assisted Living (AAL). The SOPRANO project aims to develop affordable, smart ICT-based assisted living services with interfaces which are easy to use for older people and familiar in their home environment.
The TEAM project addresses the need for a knowledge sharing environment with advanced capabilities suitable for the distributed engineering and management of software systems. The TEAM project aims to develop an open-source software system, seamlessly integrated in a software development environment for enabling decentralised, personalised and context-aware knowledge sharing.
COMPETE is a project that aims to develop a semantic competence management system and integrate it with a commercial human resource management system.
The goal of Laboranova is to create next generation Collaborative Tools which will change existing technological and social infrastructures for collaborating and support knowledge workers and eProfessionals in sharing, improving and evaluating ideas systematically across teams, companies and networks. Laboranova will do research to develop and integrate models and tools in three specific areas, the three pillars in the project: ideation, connection and evaluation.
Existing approaches for knowledge management in e-government focus mainly on the efficient management of knowledge resources and on supporting communication between public administrators. However, the changes that affect the system are resolved and propagated in an ad-hoc manner, while the demands for knowledge-based e-government are much higher.
FUSION aims at the efficient business collaboration and interconnection between enterprise(including SMEs) by developing a framework and innovative technologies for the semantic fusion of service-oriented businesses applications that exist within an enterprise or in several collaborating companies, taking into consideration the intercultural and regulatory aspects of the enlarged Europe countries.
NetForce 2006 is a Regional Innovation programme which aims to reinforce the regional innovation in Peloponnese implementing a series of cross-sectoral innovative actions in the region of Peloponissos. The programme is focused on the development networking business or business clusters for the promotion of new products and encourages the establishment of innovative enterprises with links to educational institutions and research centres.
For e-government initiatives to succeed, public services should be organized in away to serve every citizen individually. Since citizens pose different access possibilities, skills and motivation, service delivery should be tailored to the widest possible end-user population. This adaptivity means that all citizens have access to the public services in a manner which is enabling and satisfying. It requires not only the personalized service delivery, but more important the extension of the service description by including dynamically changing citizens’ needs.
RIDE is a roadmap project for interoperability of eHealth systems leading to recommendations for actions and to preparatory actions at the European level.
This roadmap will prepare the ground for future actions as envisioned in the action plan of the eHealth Communication COM 356 by coordinating various efforts on eHealth interoperability in member states and the associated states. Since it is not realistic to expect to have a single universally accepted clinical data model that will be adhered to all over the Europe and that the clinical practice, terminology systems and EHR systems are all a long way from such a complete harmonization; the RIDE project will address the interoperability of eHealth systems with special emphasis on semantic interoperability.
