Carla Oliveira is preparing a contribution to the next MCM meeting, to be held in Lyon, France, in May.
EARTH – http://www.ict-earth.eu
Filipe Cardoso and António Serrador are preparing contributions to the next Deliverables.
Net!Works – http://www.networks-etp.eu
Luis M. Correia is preparing contributions to the FIA workshop.
monIT – http://monit.it.pt
Thirteen actions were held in secondary schools during March, and more are scheduled for the upcoming month. Three continuous measurement networks were installed in Setúbal (in cooperation with the Setúbal Polytechnic Institute), Braga (in the Alberto Sampaio Secondary School), and in São João da Madeira (in the João da Silva Correia Secondary School). In the meantime, 5 measurement stations were removed from Pombal. Regarding Prémio monIT, 37 teams continue still in the competition, after the delivery of the 2nd progress report. Training actions on the measurement equipment are still being carried on with some of the groups.
SAIL – http://www.sail-project.eu
João Gonçalves and Daniel Sebastião are preparing contributions to the next Deliverable, D.A.8 “Evaluation of business models”. Lúcio Ferreira and Luisa Caeiro are working on the OConS architecture, being responsible for the orchestration, a contribution for deliverable D.C 2 “Architecture and Mechanisms for Connectivity Services”.
