ATENA (Advanced Tools to assEss and mitigate the criticality of ICT compoNents and their dependencies over Critical InfrAstructures)) is a European project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme on ‘Digital Security: Cybersecurity, Privacy and Trust, H2020-DS-2015’. The ATENA project aims at achieving the desired level of Security and Resilience of the considered CIs, while preserving their efficient and flexible management. ATENA, leveraging the outcomes of previous European Research activities, particularly the CockpitCI and MICIE EU projects, will remarkably upgrade them by exploiting advanced features of ICT algorithms and components, and will bring them at operational industrial maturity level; in this last respect, ATENA outcomes will be tailored and validated in selected use cases.

bIoTope (Building an IoT OPen innovation Ecosystem for connected smart objects) is a RIA (Research and Innovation Action) project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme. It is the response to the Call “ICT30: Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects”.

bIoTope lays the foundation for open innovation ecosystems, where companies can – with minimal investment – innovate by creating new Systems-of-Systems (SoS) platforms for connected smart objects. To achieve this goal, bIoTope provides the necessary standardised Open APIs to enable the publication, consumption and composition of heterogeneous information sources and services from across various platforms, including FI-WARE, OpenIoT, city dashboards, etc. (visit the OBJECTIVES web page). This will foster new forms of co-creation of services ranging from simple data collection, processing, to context-driven, intelligent and self-adaptive support of consumers’ everyday work and life. bIoTope also establishes a governance roadmap for ecosystem orchestration to properly maintain, grow and sustain the socio-technical and business-wise bIoTope ecosystem.
