MoA between CONSERT/UniWA and ATHENA/GATECH CONSERT (Computer Networks & Services Research Laboratory) of the University of West Attica, and ATHENA (Agile Technologies for High-performance Electromagnetic Novel Applications) of Georgia Institute of Technology, signed an MoA in May 2020. In the context of the collaboration the two research groups will -Plan and implement joint research projects; -Jointly organize workshops, seminars & short-term programs; -Extend reciprocal invitations of scholars for the purpose of talks, lectures and research -Share infrastructure facilities including laboratories, equipment for research with mutual consent; -Work jointly and participate in research activities happening at either side with mutual consent and in common areas of interest.
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: https://www.energytransition.academy (Project) https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/837854 (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.

Quick Report App Download the Quick Report app from App Store or Google Play. Download the Quick Report app from App Store or Google Play. GOAL Quick Report is a mobile application paired with a Bluetooth button in the size of a coin, used for sending predefined messages to a target person. Messages are sent by clicking the button, with each type of click (single, double or long), corresponding to a different notification message. Click here to see all places on the world where the Quick Report buttons have been pressed. HOW IT WORKS Τhe application sends a predefined text (JSON message), either to a server, or to an email account. It has been developed for both iPhone and Android mobile phones. The application is using a paired button (current implementation comes with a flic button) and can be configured by the user. Report user location (optional) Hide the reporter’s identity – no information about the personal ID of the reporter is sent In cases where identified reports are needed to be provided but the identity of the reporter needs to be concealed, CoNSeRT has developed a Privacy Protection Communication Gateway, through which a two stage, non-reversible process is used to unlink the ID of the reporter from the recipient of the report, so that anonymous reporting can be guaranteed. Hardware/software requirements The application and back office services of the smart button, require from the user the app installation and an initial configuration of the reports (i.e. how they should be triggered, what happens after, what information is sent, etc.). In terms of hardware, any BT enabled clicker/button/ device can be integrated (as long as the corresponding libraries or description of operation are available). The current implementation is using the FLIC company button. A specific number of buttons have been produced for this reason and are available to all interested parties, following communication with CoNSeRT members. DEPLOYMENT The Quick Report has been deployed in the Horizon 2020 project TRILLION for incident quick reporting. The user can configure a message to be sent to the TRILLION platform, as well as the incident category (i.e. warning, urgency), depending on the button’s click. The solution has been successfully validated in pilots accomplished in London, by Victoria BID, in the context of TRILLION tests (2018). A monitoring tool of selected smart buttons’ click location and time has been implemented (always with the consent of the user), able to monitor globally, all clicks. This can be used for cases where heat maps of clicked locations need to be provided, for visualization purposes. BENEFIT Seamless, discreet and quick reporting, without the need to use a smartphone or smartwatch Easy to use (both in terms of the device, but also of the app, which needs [...]
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: Christos Chatzigeorgiou PPCG is a result of research performed under the Horizon 2020 project TRILLION.
