Running projects


Funded under the Horizon 2020 “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” Programme, the NOESIS project will identify the critical factors/features which lead to the successful implementation of Big Data technologies and services in the field of transport and logistics with significant value generation from a socioeconomic viewpoint.

This will be achieved through the examination of areas and contexts throughout Europe, in which ICT investments and exploitation of data are implemented. The impact of Big Data will be evaluated in a series of transportation use cases (Big Data in Transport Library) by developing and applying a ‘Learning framework’ and a Value Capture mechanism which will estimate the expected benefits and costs.

Ortelio acts as project coordinator of NOESIS, being involved in all key phases of the project, and leading the development of the Big Data Decision Support tool for identifying the underlying patterns of “successful” applications of Big Data in transport.


newbits_logoFunded under the Horizon 2020 “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” Programme, the NEWBITS project aims to provide a deep understanding of the changing conditions and dynamics affecting Collaborative Intelligent Transport System innovations. 

NEWBITS will foster a business ecosystem approach for C-ITS which acknowledges the context of economics of networks by introducing a higher conceptual level than that of individual organisations, focusing at how organisations create value within the context of the networks in which they interoperate. 

Ortelio acts as project coordinator of NEWBITS, being involved in all key phases of the project, and leading the innovative business modeling under a value network analysis scope.


CIPTEC_210x150Funded under the Horizon 2020 “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” Programme, the CIPTEC project aims to bring a new thinking and innovative solutions (service concepts and business models) for public transport, in order to create a favorable environment for public transport growth. 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.
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.
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-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.
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.
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.

Funder under the Interreg MED programme, the project Castwater studies sustainable tourism water management in coastal areas of the Mediterranean. Ortelio is conducting an evaluation on the usability, effectiveness and transferability of online monitoring tools towards sustainable tourism management for Public Administrations, as a subcontractor of the Malta Regional Development and Dialogue Foundation.


Funded under the Interreg Europe programme, the project Symbi promotes industrial symbiosis for regional sustainable growth and a resource efficient circular economy. Ortelio supported the organisation of an interregional workshop on industrial symbiosis demonstration projects as a subcontractor of the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, Regional Government of Andalucia in Spain.
