ASSET – A holistic and Scalable Solution for Research, Innovation and Education in Energy Transition

Program/Topic: H2020/LC-SC3-CC-5-2018 – Research, innovation and educational capacities for energy transition

Period: 1 May 2019 – 30 April 2021

Total Cost: € 1.999.075

Grant Agreement ID: 837854

Role in the Project: Project leader (Sc. Coordinator Ass. Prof Leligou)

Links: (Project) (Cordis)

Description: ASSET´s goal is twofold: first, to create a sustainable and scalable ecosystem including all energy transition and education stakeholders: a) Companies from the energy sector, b) Universities and training actors, c) Authorities and policy makers and d) Society so as to enable a) continuous bottom up creation of research, innovation and educational (RIE) services and b) capacity pooling. By “service” we mean any research, innovation and educational relevant service that can be developed by the educational actors and delivered to the energy sector businesses and society at large. ASSET will also involve actors that can contribute to fuel interdisciplinary research combining SSH disciplines and capable of reaching out to the society to create the new generation of energy-sensitive citizens that are part of the energy transition mission. And second, to deliver the framework and means for continuous collaborative definition of the knowledge-competencies-skills required for the energy transition and for continuous resource pooling to efficiently educate/train large numbers of people in diverse and interdisciplinary topics and carry out research and innovation activities.

Social Smart Object’s Relationships Ontology (SSOR-Ont)

In order to overcome the interoperability problems that emerge from the heterogeneous nature of the IoE entities, we have developed two ontologies: Social Smart Object’s Relationships Ontology (SSOR-Ont) and Smart Object’s Needs and Services Ontology (SONS-Ont).

You can find the Social Smart Object’s Relationships Ontology (SSOR-Ont) here.

Smart Object’s Needs and Services Ontology (SONS-Ont)

SSOR-Ont defines semantically the social relationships of the IoE entities and contains five main classes:

 OwnershipFriend: It describes the relationship between smart objects that belong to the same owner.

  • Co-WorkFriend: It is the “friendship” established between cooperative smart entities.
  • Co-LocationFriend: It depicts the social relationship between smart entities that are located in the same place.
  • OccasionalFriend: It is a “friend” that the smart entity “meets” sporadically in a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET). OccasionalFriend refers to the Social object relationship.
  • ParentalFriend: It is a relationship that comes from the manufacturer and is referred to smart objects created in the same production batch.

On the other hand, SONS-Ont has as main class the SIoT Agent that defines the services that are produced by a smart entity, the needs it has and the type of the SIoT agent (i.e. user agent). The Service class is the facility that a smart entity offers. For example, a lamp offers lighting or the air-condition offers cold air. Each Service is mapped to a Topic, empowering the Publish-Subscribe pattern that ASSIST takes advantage of, and has a unique URI. Finally, the Need class responds to the resources a smart entity has to consume for achieving its goal. For example, a Jogging Planner has to be aware of the weather in order to form a jogging schedule for the week. The main reason for exploiting this ontology is to emphasize on the collaboration between smart IoE entities (both physical and cyber physical) and, consequently, to enforce the formation of new co-work relationships between them.

Privacy Protection Communication Gateway

In today’s world where internet is ubiquitous, protecting user’s privacy is a crucial task, thus a “Privacy Protection Communication Gateway – PPCG” solution has been designed to preserve user’s privacy and of course protect the exchanged information from attacks. The solution is based on the deployment of two servers, implementing a two-step privacy protection process. Furthermore, PPCG also aims at preserving the confidentiality of information exchange between the end platform and the users, as well as protecting the communication against attacks.

The first server is the Privacy Protection Proxy Server (PPPS) having as a main task the protection of the user’s identity through the transformation of user’s ID into a non-reversible identifier, that will be used during the communication between the user and the end platform.

The second is the Control Centre Server (CCS), having as a main task, to provide a secure end-to-end encryption for the information exchange.

The results of the autonomous operation and management of the two servers, if combined in a serial mode (user > PPPS > CCS), are able to guarantee the confidential and certified exchange of information between a user and the end platform.

Development status: Beta testing / Release candidate version

Researchers in charge of the project:

PPCG is a result of research performed under the Horizon 2020 project TRILLION.
