CIPTEC will find, analyse and assess the key market and social trends for their potential effect on Public Transport customers and will try to validate and classify the opportunities and threats imply for urban public transport. Ortelio is actively involved in all phases of the project, ensuring that the identified innovative practices will be well branded to find their way to the market.
AppSkil
appskilFunded under the Erasmus+ Programme, the AppSkil project aims at improving the level and quality of education, skills and employment in the mobile apps industry by anticipating the future skills needs and responding to labour shortages. The project forms a European ICT Sector Skills Alliance, which will work to identify the skills most needed but missing from the mobile apps’ labour market and develop a suitable curriculum and online courses to offer industry-specific training to mobile app developers. The Alliance will cooperate with Social Partners, Enterprises, Industry Skills Partnerships, Education Institutions and all the stakeholders of the ICT sector towards the creation and functioning of a European ICT Sector Skills Council. Ortelio is acting as the external evaluator of the project, to examine the extent to which the AppSkil project meets its objectives, and to provide the necessary guidance so that the project achieves the desired impact, as a subcontractor of Coventry University Enterprises Ltd.
ROUTE-TO-PA
rtpaFunded under the Horizon 2020 “Europe in a changing world – Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies” Programme, the project ROUTE-TO-PA combines expertise in the fields of e-government, computer science, learning science and economy and is aiming at improving the engagement of citizens by making them able to socially interact over open data, by forming or joining existing online communities that share common interest and discuss common issues. Ortelio participates in the development and integration of the platform and is responsible for the business and exploitation plan of the project.
MARIO
mario-logoFunded under the Horizon 2020 “Health, demographic change and wellbeing” Programme, the project MARIO is about managing active and healthy aging with use of caring service robots. The project specifically addresses the challenges of loneliness, isolation and dementia in older persons through innovative and multi-faceted interventions delivered by service robots. The effects of these conditions are severe and life-limiting. They burden individuals and societal support systems. Human intervention is costly, but the severity can be prevented and/or mitigated by simple changes in self-perception and brain stimulation mediated by robots. In MARIO, Ortelio is developing robotic applications tackling these challenges, by utilizing its cloud based robotics platform.
Innogrow
csm_innogrow_a92a470579Funded under the Interreg Europe programme, the project Innogrow studies regional policies for innovation driven competitiveness and growth of rural SMEs, and offers regional support to engage such SMEs in innovation. Ortelio is supporting actions of the capacity building process of stimulating innovative products development by rural economy SMEs, as a subcontractor of Stara Zagora Regional Economic Development Agency.
GPP4Growth
csm_gpp4growth_3d3da56d89Funded under the Interreg Europe programme, the project GPP4Growth aims at helping European regions to incentivise eco-innovation and resource efficiency via green public procurement (GPP), i.e. by applying new environmental criteria in public tenders. Ortelio is supporting the design and implementation of the project’s communication strategy, as a subcontractor of the Province of Antwerp.
Q-Tales
qtalesFunded under the Horizon 2020 “Content Technologies and Information Management” Programme, the project Q-Tales aims to create a collaboration ecosystem to serve the needs of the European children e-book industry, where European Creative SMEs, Experts and Parents, co-create new and transform existing children literature into high quality e-books & Apps using innovative ICT solutions provided by European ICT SMEs along with a Curation framework provided by European Academic experts in the field of Pedagogy, Children Psychology and evolutionary Psychology. Ortelio is responsible for the design, development and integration of the Q-Tales platform.
Metric
metric_logoFunded under the FP7 Transport Programme, the project Metric maps the regional transport innovation capacity and identifies the competitive advantage of regions. Regional innovation roadmaps will be defined, and recommendations on how to support weak regions will be developed. Ortelio is working on the project’s dissemination and branding activities, as a subcontractor of Coventry University Enterprises Ltd.
SIVA
siva_logoFunded under the South East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme, the project SIVA aims at improving the accessibility of South East Europe territories through joint initiatives facilitating the rollout of broadband networks and services. Ortelio is contributing to the development of the methodological framework of the project, and specifically to the development of criteria and indicators for the identification and the collection of relevant good practices, as well as to the development of an action plan. Ortelio is a subcontractor of TECLA – Association for the local and European trans-regional cooperation.
RAPP
rapp_projectFunded under the FP7 ICT Programme, the project RAPP develops a software platform to support the creation and delivery of robotics applications (RAPPs) targeted to people at risk of exclusion, especially older people. This open source platform will provide an API with functionalities that will enable software developers to create robotic applications for different types of robots. By adding a middleware stack with added functionalities suitable for different kinds of robots, software developers will be using high level commands to access the robot’s sensors and actuators. Ortelio is responsible for specifying the requirements and the architecture of the RAPP platform and for developing the robotics application store (RAPP store) integrating it with the proposed RAPP API.
ENORASIS
enorasisFunded under the FP7 Environment Programme, the project ENORASIS develops an integrated Decision Support System for environmentally optimized irrigation management by farmers and water management organizations based on advanced technologies and models.
