TRILLION - Trusted, cItizen - Lea coLlaboratIon over sOcial Networks Funding Program: Horizon (H2020-EU.3.7.) Topic: FCT-14-2014 - Ethical/Societal Dimension Topic 2: Enhancing cooperation between law enforcement agencies and citizens - Community policing Type: RIA - Research and Innovation action Period: 1/9/2015 - 31/8/2018 Total Cost: 4.263.408 € Grant agreement: N°653256 Role in the Project:  Scientific Coordinator Link: Cordis link: Description: TRILLION proposes an open, flexible, secure and resilient socio-technical platform to foster effective collaboration of citizens and law enforcement officers. Using the TRILLION platform, citizens will be able to report crimes, suspicious behavior and incidents, identify hazards and assist law enforcement agents through active participation for achieving better urban security management. On the other hand, Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) will be able to detect incidents in a more efficient, content and context aware manner, locate onsite citizens, other LEA representatives and first responders communicate with them, request more information and assign them specific actions to address on-going incidents.

STORM - Safeguarding cultural heritage through Technical and Organisational Resources Management Funding Program: Horizon (H2020-EU.3.5., H2020-EU.3.7.) Topic: DRS-11-2015 - Disaster Resilience & Climate Change topic 3: Mitigating the impacts of climate change and natural hazards on cultural heritage sites, structures and artefacts Type of Project: Research and Innovation Actions Period: 01/06/2016 - 31/05/2019 Links: Total Cost: 7.297.875 € Role in the Project:  Scientific Coordinator Description STORM plans to introduce an integrated framework and a platform providing tools and services both at macro level to give a global view of the entire value chain and at specific level to promote the improvement of specific processes for protection and prevention. A novelty of STORM is to promote both views in the same framework; STORM will allow users to address each single issue within a simple process supported by the related technology. The STORM integrated framework will manage those modules to give a view that can be drilled down to give stakeholders the possibility to improve it. To support this, STORM will introduce a system to identify existing processes adding critical relationship management automation to improve the process itself. STORM aims to provide critical decision making tools to all European Cultural Heritage stakeholders affected by climate change and natural hazards. This will be a new innovative capability to improve existing processes related to three identified areas: Prevention, Intervention and Policies, planning and processes. View Demo (EcoBox)

DESMOS - Smart Interconnected Infrastructures for Security and Protection Funding Program:  Greek National Operational Program “Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation – RESEARCH-CREATE-INNOVATE Period: 25/07/2018 - 24/1/2021 Total Cost: 678.239 € Links: Role in the Project: Project partner/ WP leader Description: The project aims to develop the DESMOS platform, a framework for the interconnection of smart infrastructures and the use of mobile and computing applications to provide a secure environment for citizens, with emphasis on tourists. The platform will be based on participatory cooperation between people and infrastructure, implementing a framework for the protection of tourists through timely incident reporting, adaptation of interconnected infrastructures in emergency situations, and support for assistance through the actions of volunteers and local authorities. The project sets the following high-level objectives: Fast, timely and accurate notifications in case of emergencies (e.g. allergies, medical incidents, etc.), sending at the same time all contextual information needed to help authorities coordinate and assist people, protecting the privacy of the monitored people. Anonymous reporting of incidents using crowdsourcing, with a special focus on incidents involving tourists, e.g. thefts. Adaptability of services, devices and people to respond to incidents and protect citizens/tourists. In order to realize the abovementioned objectives, the platform will follow a systematic approach for interconnecting people, services and devices using: Applications in mobile and wearable devices that will be used by: Volunteers, who will be timely informed for incidents happening nearby, providing at the same time contextual information about the type of help needed, the current situation and suggestions on how to react. Tourists, who will be able to connect with volunteers and services of the visited area, increasing the feeling of safety and promoting their participation in the safe ecosystem of people and devices. Smart Spots across the area (e.g. municipality) that will be able to listen for reports and requests for help and further propagate them in the local intelligent network, aiming at finding the best solution to mitigate the emergency situation. Fusion and interpretation of heterogeneous events and information through semantic reasoning and decision making for supporting real-time alerts and notification of responsible entities.

EUNOMIA: UsEr-oriented, secUre, trustful & deceNtralised sOcial MediA Innovation Action: Trustful and Secure Data Ecosystem for Social Media and Media Subtopic A: Content verification Period: 11/2018 (est) ~ 2021 Total Cost: 3.049.763,75 € Grant agreement: No. 825171, 2018-2021 Role in the Project: Project partner/ WP leader Links: Description: EUNOMIA is a fully decentralised, intermediary-free and open-source solution for addressing three key challenges: Which social media user is the original source of a piece of information? How this information has spread and been modified in an information cascade? How likely is the information to be trustworthy? EUNOMIA employs the human-as-a-trust-sensor paradigm, which actively encourages democratic citizen participation by allowing voting on content trustworthiness and influencing the reputation of content generators and sharers. It combines information cascade verification with information trustworthiness scoring, benefitting from blockchain technology to ensure transparency of the scoring process and that information has not been modified in a cascade. EUNOMIA follows the design principles of open-source intermediary-free decentralised social media. It empowers social media users by providing them with tools to improve the quality of information sharing, which in turn can responsibilise them in their engagement with social media. Users will be more certain about the provenance and quality of the content they consume, while the media will be more credible sources of news dissemination, thus challenging the accumulation of power in social media intermediaries, such as Facebook and Twitter. EUNOMIA’s versatility will be evaluated on three use-cases: Social journalism, traditional media and an existing decentralised social media community.
