Collaborating with a network of eight research and industry partners, the project aims at designing,developing, and deploying a virtual organization environment for networks of SMEs, involved in highly customized and service-enhanced product specification and co-development, e.g. supporting the solar energy industry. GLONET's virtual organization will support end-to-end collaboration with customers, as well as co-creation among regional and remote suppliers. Development of the planned support environment of GlONET adopts a cloud-based approach (applying the CAS OPEN's cloud-based PaaS and SaaS offerings) so its supporting services dynamically upgrade without influencing the nodes and stakeholders in the environment.
In collaboration with IFIP associated experts from all around the world, aiming at the assessment and categorization of results achieved in both research and practices in the area of virtual enterprises and electronic business, leading to the design of common reference models, cooperation infrastructures, and prospects for further collaborative developments.
Collaborating within a network of nine research and academic partners, focus on bridging research in ageing and ICT development. The project aims at development of a consolidated "roadmap" to characterize the key research challengesand to produce a vision for a comprehensive approach in supporting the integration of increasing number of senior professionals in Europe.The technological perspective of the vision for these Virtual Communities (VCs) of elderly professionals will identify the needed R&D in related areas such as the soft computing, affective computing, machine learning, and collaborative networks.
In collaboration with four other European partners from research and industry, aiming at development of a “roadmap” to identify the needed models, methodologies, technologies, architectural infrastructure, and constituting components, towards supporting the establishment of Virtual Communities (VCs) for elderly professionals to remain active. The main target of establishing these VCs is to support the challenging fluid formation of problem solving Virtual Teams (VTs), with the focus on behavior modeling, causal reasoning and soft computing, affective computing / emotion-oriented systems, machine learning, and collaborative networks.
In collaboration with a network of twenty seven research and academic partners, and more associated organizations world-wide. This is a ESFRI preparatory project investigating the required infrastructure for global biodiversity research. The project aims to generate a roadmap for this infrastructure, namely focused on the identification and characterization of: the key research and development challenges, the construction of required physical and virtual networks, and the supporting infrastructure for collaborative activities within this network, focused on all aspects of global biodiversity.
In close collaboration with twenty other Dutch universities, research institutes, and industies, building a support environmentand a the proof of concept for e-science experimentations applied to six different scientific application areas.
An Integrated Project in the 6th Framework Program of the European Commission,collaborating with twenty other European partners, aiming to achieve the necessary base for establishment of collaboration networks in Europe, creating impact both in academia and industry. In specific the project develops a holistic approach to the VO breeding environments, dynamic VO management, and professional virtual communities,as well as the theoretical foundation, and the IC technology base for this paradigm.
Collaborating with twelve other European partners, aiming to provide possibilities to monitor biodiversity world-wide by both stimulating integrated access to (existing historical) biodiversity data and by developing a common monitoring biodiversity information infrastructure. ENBI, in particular, includes and involves all European national nodes of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) as well as all other relevant EU-funded projects.
Collaborating within a network of six European industrial, research, and academic partners, building a configurable base framework and new tools and mechanisms for tele-supervision and tele-assistance, applied to aid elderly people. The development of TeleCARE is based on the virtual organization paradigm and the mobile multi-agent systems technology.
Collaborating within a network of eleven European experts in the area of Virtual/Networked Organizations, from industry, research, and academia, aiming to characterize and define scenarios of the emerging organizational forms in Europe, their required IT, social, organizational, legal, ethical infrastructures, necessary future modeling approaches and tools, for the next 5, 10, and 20 years, and to develop a Green Book to advise EC on its future RTD planning.
Collaborating within a network of fourteen European industrial, research, and academic -partners, aiming at the systematization and harmonization of the developments and results achieved in a number of leading European RTD projects and industry, on Virtual and Smart Organizations (VO).
Collaborating within a network of eight European industrial, research, and academic partners, aiming to generate a road-map for a multi-disciplinary RTD, e.g. to identify and characterize the key research areas of challenge, required constituency, and implementation models, to be able to develop systems supporting emerging dynamic collaborative networks of organizations.
In close collaboration with Four groups - two within the UvA's Informatics Institute (IvI) and two external Dutch research institutes (SILS and FOM) - building an open, and configurable Grid-based framework and a variety of generic tools and mechanisms, to facilitate scientists and engineers with their experimentation. VL makes optimum use of modern IT, and is demonstrated for several application domains, namely: experimental physics, bio-informatics, bio-medicine, and systems engineering.
Collaborating with four other Dutch Universities and institutes, building a flexible distributed and Grid-based framework for integration of a wide variety of data, such as gene sequences, molecular markers, micro-array expression data, and the mass spectrometry protein sequence data. Applying the high performance Grid infrastructure being developed in the Virtual Laboratory project (described below), Flexwork will support and demonstrate some application-based collaborative biological experimentation among these institutes.
In collaboration with six Other European academic and industry partners, aiming to provide a web-based common infrastructure to integrate the fragmented tourism information systems and their IT-based services into a federation of distributed resources, and to be accessed by the end users and other service provider enterprises through a single connect point.
In collaboration with two European industry and academic institutes and one Latin American academic institute, aiming at the design of a federated multi-agent platform to support distributed scheduling of manufacturing activities.
In collaboration in a network of eight industry, research, and academic partners, developing the base infrastructure and interoperability facilities to provide an open platform and some co-working mechanisms, supporting the operation phase of the Virtual Enterprises, developed and demonstrated for production planning and management in the extended manufacturing enterprise sector.
In collaboration in a network of ten industry, research and academic partners, building a support infrastructure and system for co-working of pre-existing legacy systems involved in advanced supervision, management and control of water distribution networks.
In collaboration with seven other Dutch industries, building a 2D/3D graphic data and services broker/mediator center.
In collaboration with two other European cancer institutes, developing an architecture for the virtual integration of pre-existing huge Genome databases.
Collaborating within a network with five other international academic, research and development centers, aiming at the design of a support system for CIM.
An intra-departmental project, aiming at the development of a generic federated database management system, to be used for the purpose of teaching, practice, and research within the federated database group.
In collaboration in a network of fourteen European industry, research, and academic institutes, building a generic framework for cooperation and information sharing among the nodes a network of loosely-coupled semi-autonomous systems, applied to the electricity distribution control systems.
In collaboration with seven Other European industry, research and academic partners, building a tool box to facilitate concurrent engineering.
