European project success stories
Luxinnovation is the Luxembourg National Contact Point (NCP) for Horizon 2020, the European Union's framework programme for research and innovation, and related research and innovation funding programmes. The Agency has recently published five new success stories on interesting projects where Luxembourg participants play a key role. These stories highlight the skills and forward-looking approach of Luxembourg's research and innovation landscape.
In 2013, Luxinnovation published its first collection of success stories describing European research and innovation projects with Luxembourg participants. A year later, articles on five new projects have been published:
- betaJUDO, which aims to identify the causes and processes of child diabetes. The Luxembourg Centre of Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) contribute with its expertise in bioinformatics and is chiefly responsible for data processing, analysis and security.
- BUTLER, which aims to design and demonstrate a secured context-aware information system for the forthcoming Internet of Things. he Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) contributed to this development with its expertise in security and privacy handling.
- CONFINE, which federates existing community WiFi networks and offer an open platform available for developing and testing new, experimental technologies. The SnT has contributed with a study on how to handle data protection and confidentiality in community-based networks.
- eTRIKS, which aims to develop standards, methods and techniques for meaningfully combining the existing data from various medical trials in order to make drug research faster and more efficient. The LCSB prepares the data for analysis.
- IoT6, which harnesses the new Internet protocol IPv6 to overcome the current shortcomings and fragmentation of the future Internet of Things. The SnT worked on security aspects.
