The vision of the project is to develop a federation and control plane framework for OpenIreland that is compatible with COSMOS, so that users can easily move from one testbed to the other. COSMOS has already developed some of these tools, which will be transferred by our team to OpenIreland. This project will enable European researchers to better interface with the international collaboration capabilities of COSMOS, under development in the COSMIC project. Two experiment were designed to showcase this possibility and to provide a user guide for other future experimenters.
This project will experiment with innovative NGI technologiesand developa new business process in data sharingto decentralizedata governance furtherand enhance trust to all participants. Use caseswill be designed and testedwith EU-EU partners.The mainactors are, DjustConnect,which deliversdata sharing services in the AgriFood industry, ChangeTheBlock,which providessmart contracts services using blockchain technologyandIdPlizz, which provides AI technology biometric recognition services. Dataconsumers (receive data from an API) and providers (exposedata using an API)will negotiate on API prices using assessed base prices and establish verified agreementson API usageduring the project
More than 6 billion new ICT goods are sold annually worldwide. We cannot afford by 2030the current growth of ICT devices. Decarbonisation is a must to tackle the environmentalcrisis and comply with the 1.5°C global warming objective described by the IPCC SpecialReport (Paris Agreement).Therefore, we need to create effective market ecosystems capable of reusing ICT devices,extending their lifespan for new uses, instead of always manufacturing new ones, throughreuse, repair, and ensure final recycling in a sustainable way.Our NGI eReuse-Ledger testbed is a permissioned distributed ledger to experiment aboutdevice traceability.
Peer-to-Peer Responsibility to Protect (P2PR2P) is a software developed by Danaides, which provides a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform based on integrity that allows for responsible and accountable common-pool-resources governance for humanitarian and human rights collective action. P2PR2P features are validated by the GENI and FABRIC proving grounds to keep security and privacy and decentralized data governance. This system has an impact on four different field: data protection and ownership through privacy features; system accountability and impact evaluation by means of audit trail implying DLT technology; thanks to the use of gamification P2P technology helps trust and autonomy; user-driven KPI.
Scientific research generates a vast amount of data, which pose incredible challenges to be processed. For this reason, an experimental use of CloudBank is implemented in Europe by CERN and the University California San Diego (UCSD). CloudBank provides a set of managed services to access public cloud for research, supporting specialised cost management and optimisation. The European NGI experiment is deploying cloud resources and a collection of Machine Learning and HPCaaS use-cases as part of the Large Hadron Collider's scientific program. The aim is to decide whether CloudBank can be effectively used by Europe's global research communities by addressing technological, financial, and legal challenges.
