Along with our partners, we are excited to announce that we have completed our kick-off meeting for the initiation of the SovereignEdgeEU/Cognit project, which is fully funded by Horizon Europe, currently one of the most prestigious funds for research and innovation!
Last week, our CTO, Antonio Lalaguna Lisa and our Innovation Manager, Joan Iglesias, participated in the kick-off meeting with our high profile partners, OpenNebula, Umeå University, IKERLAN, CETIC Centre D’Excellence en Technologies de L’Information et de la Communication, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, SUSE Software Solutions Germany GmbH, Nature4.0, Phoenix Systems and Atende Industries in order to present our role in the project SovereignEdgeEU/Cognit: The creation of a Cognitive Serverless Framework for the Cloud-Edge Continuum – A Horizon Europe project coordinated by OpenNebula Systems under the topic HORIZON-CL4-2022-DATA-01-02 (2023-2025).
Combining and extending some of the most innovative and iconic open source cloud and edge technologies in Europe, we are getting closer and closer to our common vision: Offer end-users seamless access to a continuous data processing environment provided by the new distributed FaaS-based paradigm that will speed up computation and save energy, allowing for more efficient power management, fewer storage requirements and higher application performance.
Acisa´s contribution to this novelty? Our role focuses on providing the latest technology for efficient mobility management and sustainable traffic orchestration in an e2e way through a virtualized network in order to offer different V2X services and guarantee certain levels of quality. With the goal of helping managers of urban and metropolitan centers to monitor operations, reduce costs and ensure service quality through cloud, local or edge computing, our objective is to develop a virtualized environment, where we can implement the advanced functionalities of the new Acisa traffic light regulator called Mobility Hub — M-Hub.
As a result of our efforts, we are very proud of contributing to this inspiring project that seeks to build sustainable environments and ensure data sovereignty, promote competitiveness and bring new business opportunities for EU companies.
