We just started a new project for which I successfully applied for public funding. The project is called E²S²E (Energy Efficient and Secure Smart Environment).
The aim of E²S²E is to form a cluster of excellent research and innovation in Smart Environments (Smart Homes, Smart Cities, Smart Transportation) and related topics (eHealth, demographic change). The major focus of the project is to address IT security, energy efficiency and ease of operation of related systems, and thus covers central priorities of the German and European research funding.
The project is funded by the initiative „Internationale Zusammenarbeit in Bildung und Forschung, Region Mittelost- und Südosteuropa“ of the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for two years.
