Work packages

WP 1 - Management

This work package will oversee the implementation of all other work packages in terms of technical direction and resource consumption, coordinate the technical work, and manage the IPR arising out of the project. Leading partner: Aalto University.

WP 2 - Federation Architecture & Framework

This work package will specify the SOFIE IoT federation architecture, create the SOFIE IoT federation framework, and support WP3 to create the pilot business platforms. Leading partner: Aalto University.

WP 3 - Business Platforms Integration

The purpose of this work package is to integrate three business platforms for the pilots, based on the federation architecture and components developed in WP2. Leading partner: Ericsson.

WP 4 - Validation

The main objective of WP4 is the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the SOFIE architecture and framework against the key KPIs and assessment criteria defined in WP2. Leading partner: Athens University of Economics and Business.

WP 5 - Pilots

This work package will be responsible for setting up and running all three pilots. Leading partner: Synelixis Solutions.

WP 6 - Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation

This work package is the main vehicle for communication and dissemination and impact creation of SOFIE. Leading partner: Guardtime OÜ.
