PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Proposal Outline:

The new Distributed Electric Propulsion – DEP uses a revolutionary design, generating lift within a relatively small body by employing a unique combination of lifting surfaces. This is primarily because it allows the creation of an extremely compact aerial vehicle which has Vertical Takeoff and Landing capabilities and high lifting efficiencies. DEP as a rotorless drag-reducing propulsion system can be deployed in a versatile hover-capable flying aircraft to lift heavy loads efficiently. Scalable with a combination of stable overlapping flight roles and modes from horizontal take-off through assisted low speed and stationary hover through to high speed winged flight and back. DEP mainly employs a multiple ducted fan arrangement and new ducted fan configuration creating a very efficient air distribution

This innovative DEP concept allows building some aircraft configurations that are also news. As a pilotless drone or replacement for ageing S/VTOL airframes, this multi-role propulsion system and application provides enhanced operational versatility, stability, scalability, handling, fuel-efficiency, payload capacity, performance, reduced noise and increased safety potential. Other benefits are simplified mechanical construction over helicopter with multiple-redundant array of engines with independent throttling for directional thrust, feathering on failure and controlled vertical cushion decay to produce a soft landing. Blade-shedding will not cause catastrophic power-loss from multi-engined array

HORIZON 2020 Health, demographic change and well-being

SC1-PM-02-2017: New concepts in patient stratification

(RIA) 40.0     04 Oct 2016 (First stage) 11 Apr 2017 (Second stage)

Specific Challenge: Despite the major advances in understanding disease in the post-genomic era, still a majority of all drugs are effective in only a limited number of patients. From a clinical perspective, implementing knowledge-based decisions on what therapeutics to use for which patients and, if relevant, in which combinations, are extremely challenging. The aspiration to provide more effective therapeutic interventions tailored to the individual or groups of individuals with common molecular phenotypes remains unfulfilled because of the variable response of individuals to such interventions.

The proposed project will research and deliver new methods for disease-mechanism based patient stratification to address the needs for stratified or personalized therapeutic interventions. The proposals will develop new methods and implement them by integrated software system that will provide solutions to analyze multidimensional and longitudinal data from multiple sources, using areas like pharmacogenomics, systems biomedicine, big data analysis and computational modeling.

The new methods will support the development of improved targeted therapies, optimizing the intervention to individual patients, thus facilitating achievement of a greater success in treating or curing the patients.

The system and the process that will demonstrate new concepts of stratification will be validated in pre-clinical and clinical studies in 3 different locations, taking into account sex and gender differences. The system will be focused on addressing 3 complex diseases having high prevalence and possibly will also have high economic impact.

In the case of success system can in future be gradually improved by SMEs participated in the project by future developments to address main complex diseases.

The system design and implementation will comply with the regulatory aspects needed for clinical practice. The companies and SMEs participated in the system development will benefit from detailed plans for commercialization opportunities.

PROJECT OVERVIEW
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Proposal Outline:

Flying drones promise to replace many civilian services currently requiring humans by means of robots performing product delivery, agricultural monitoring, inspections and maintenance, damage assessments. For this vision to be concretized, drones need to be safe, reliable, available on demand and most importantly fully automatic. This revolution is facing three challenges:

1. the design of services that are possible to be executed within the regulations;

2. the development of landing stations that the drones can exploit as docking point to recharge their batteries;

3. the development of a master-control software that deals with coordination and optimization of the flights and operations of the drones performing the service.

The „Persistent Imaging with Robotized Drones” project (PIRD) is addressing the key technical challenges that all drone automation companies are facing today and that, if solved, will open the drone services market to existing and new industries. PIRD innovation will solve these challenges by the use of a platform managing transparently operations with small multi-copters and a network of landing/recharge stations. The PIRD system controls navigation, information feeds from the drones, and the operation strategy in a fault tolerant and law-abiding way. The software is able to program the flight plan best for each individual drone taking into account dynamically its role in the overall mission.  The hardware ensures a permanent operation of the drones despite the limited autonomy and range of drones. The development of this innovation will allow for the first time to coordinate and manage in a fully automated way fleets of drones.

By integrating together the evolution of the prototypes developed during phase 1 of the SME instrument, the consortium intends to commercialize, in the short term, a modular platform that in the future can be deployed beyond industry 4.0 applications, especially in urban settings. This platform should provide an extremely flexible array of solutions that, thanks to the coordinated management of many available drones, can run either continuously (24/7), only at specific hours, or to be activated if triggered by specific events, such as alarms or natural events. The operators in the control room upgraded by the PIRD system will effectively have „eyes in the sky”, which will offer new real-time useful information, in a fully automatic way, with none or very little human supervision required.

The final business goal at the end of the SME instrument phase 2 is to tackle the global scene using these early achievements as a springboard for market penetration and to extend the viability of multiple innovative technological solutions to other potential fields of applications, such as

the safeguard of the national heritage (inspection of monuments or archaeological sites, extended photographic campaigns, etc.), the intervention in post-disaster scenarios (accidents, fires, earthquakes, landslides, etc.), the protection of the environment, and so on – contexts that could raise the interest of major institutional partners.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Proposal Outline:

A Spanish SME specialized on the provisioning of advanced solutions for IT services, is interested in building a consortium and submit a project under the call DS-02-2016 of Horizon 2020 (with deadline 28th August 2016).

Since the attacks (criminal, cybernetics, etc.) are becoming more sophisticated and massive, it is necessary to develop the appropriate security tools and provide specific resources for a continuous updating of defenses against them. This project aims to develop a technology for self-protection of files (documents, tools, etc.). Usually, the authorized users for using a file (or document) could be considered unreliable. You need to trust them about how they are going to use the file and therefore you leave the security of the document in the hands of those authorized users.

The protection technology that will be addressed in this project will seek to overcome the limitations of the SoA and it will become an everyday tool for SME´s, local public administrations and individuals on the daily basis, as it is intended as a very low cost compared to current solutions that require installation of hardware and software infrastructure within the enterprise IT structure.

Our project is mainly focused on the security for SMEs and local public administrations, but the individuals can also use our solution because they have threats as the other end users, so they need a protection for their documents.

The call:

  • DS-02-2016 “Cyber Security for SMEs, local public administration and Individuals”.
  • Call deadline: 28th August 2016.
  • Deadline for the expressions of interest: end of July 2016.
  • Duration of the project: TBD.

 

PARTNER PROFILE SOUGHT
Required skills and expertise of partner(s):

Requested partners are SMEs and big enterprises experienced on developing security solutions, R&D institutions, public and private security end users which could address the specific needs and also provide feedback during the project development, and a legal organization with the objective to take into account the guidance documents, best practices and standards. Besides, the partners should have experience integrating and validating solutions.

Description of work to be carried out by the partner(s) sought:
  • Use case definition
  • Develop the technology.
  • Standardization participation.
  • Integration and validation.
  • Tests and demonstration.
