Research Projects

SaveWoodenBoats National Initiative

The project partnership aims to rescue and maintain the maximum possible number of elements of the "ELENI P.", one of the largest surviving “Perama” boats, to prepare a complete study of the construction of a true copy of Eleni P., which will incorporate the maximum possible number of items that have been saved and conserved, create a digital copy of the restored vessel and prepare an exploitation and sustainability study of the physical/digital copy of the vessel. The above objectives will be achieved by the 2D/3D Design and Digital 3D Preserved Parts of the Ship, with targeted and specialized Diagnostic and Maintenance Works at the Shipyard, with Wood Recognition and Maintenance Works by recognized Greek scientists, Design and Designing Works by Specialized Architects as well as Documentation and Demonstration Works with the contribution of Executives from the Museum of Hydra and Central DNPK Service of the Ministry of Culture.

Intelligent Waste Management

Funded by the Municipality of Lamia

The project targets to the intelligent management of waste bins/trucks of the Lamia Municipality and the efficient delivery of the appropriate collection routes in the city. Our components deal with the provision of an easy to use Web interface and a set of collection routes towards the minimization of the cost for the municipality. The city is separated into a number of zones and for each zone we provide algorithms for minimizing the number of routes and the collection cost. Additionally, the responsible persons of the municipality can select algorithms that permit the 'mix' of collection trucks or dedicated missions according to the needs.


ENFORCE provides solutions for the virtualization of Set-top Boxes (STBs - vSTBs) and iTV services chains (if absent in SoftFIRE). ENFORCE covers the programmability aspect of the SoftFIRE platform that will reveal the combination of Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to directly govern and orchestrate network resources to create virtual infrastructures. For iTV services, ENFORCE will also offer a benchmarking tool that will reveal the strengths / weaknesses of the SoftFIRE solution. ENFORCE will evaluate the monitoring mechanism and the SoftFIRE platform on top of multiple test scenarios where the demand for iTV services and their performance will vary.


INNOVATE aims to offer the efficient management and knowledge extraction over large-scale data streams in various application domains incl. telecommunications, risk analysis, and health analytics. INNOVATE is expected to design/introduce/build intelligent applications that will provide analytics in (near) real time, thus, supporting bio-medical, geo-distributed applications over large-scale data streams. The developed methodology will establish the basis for timely, high quality services that will increase end users’ satisfaction and improve quality of living.
