Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEIC), participates in NEREUS via the “Research & Development of Telecommunications Systems” (PASIPHAE), which is a research group within the “Media, Networks and Communications Lab.” (MNC) of the Informatics Engineering department, School of Engineering. PASIPHAE group has extensive R&D experience and educational know-how in fixed/mobile communications, service/network virtualisation, Future Internet architectures, network management and administration techniques, and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), and therefore will lead NEREUS efforts in “Open network architectures with service orchestration” domain.
University of Malta (UoM), participates in NEREUS via the Department of Communications and Computer Engineering (CCE), which is focused within the areas encompassing computer systems and communication systems, computer networks, and the signal processing necessary to analyse, model, process, code, transmit and decode multimedia data travelling over fixed and wireless networks. CCE has established know-how and expertise in resilient multimedia transmission techniques, 3D and Multi-view Video Coding technologies, protocols and applications for environmental-friendly media delivery, and therefore will lead NEREUS efforts in “Novel media coding and green transport mechanisms” domain.
Bordeaux INP (UoB), participates in NEREUS via the Telecommunications department of the ENSEIRB-MATMECA school of engineers, part of Bordeaux INP, which is a group where activities are being focused on all Telecommunication fields, ranging from networking, distributed systems, signal processing and digital communications. Bordeaux team has extensive R&D know-how in the fields of real-time network adaptation and dynamic resource allocation for multimedia provisioning, End-to-End QoS mechanisms and Network- and Content- awareness for tight service/network coupling, and therefore will lead NEREUS efforts in the “QoS/QoE modelling and management” domain.
University of Nicosia (UoN), participates in NEREUS via the participates via the Mobile Systems Lab. (MOSys Lab.) of the Computer Science department of the School of Sciences and Engineering, which explores the research involved, in various fields of wireless systems and data management in Distributed Web Information Systems. MOSys Lab. has established know-how in high performance cloud and mobile cloud computing systems, modeling and simulation of mobile computing environments and protocol development, data management, new ‘green’ mobility-based protocols and deployment for large-scale heterogeneous networks, and therefore will lead NEREUS efforts in the “Next generation cloud-based services” domain.
Kingston University (KU), participates in NEREUS via the Wireless Multimedia & Networking (WMN) research group, part of School of Computer Science and Mathematics (CSM), Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing (SEC), which is extensively involved in wireless communications research, ad-hoc networking, 5G, cognitive radio, wireless sensor networks, security and mobility management protocols, emergency service communications, wireless multimedia and 3D applications. WMN is a security and wireless technology expert group in the area of next generation ubiquitous communications networks, and with established know-how in Social Media and Informatics, and therefore will lead NEREUS efforts in “Secure and trustworthy communications” domain.
