4. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

COST IC1004 –
GROW members are preparing contributions to the next meetings.

Daniel Sebastião and Carla Oliveira continued to contribute to IR5.1 “Smart low-EMF architectures: state of the art and way forward”, and prepared a contribution on life segmentation regarding EMF exposure. Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak contributed to D2.1 “Current metrics for EMF exposure evaluation”, and are preparing an internal document on the state of the art on this topic. Work is also progressing on the topic of the numerical tools. Filipe Cardoso has finalised the Press Release.

Lúcio Ferreira, Mónica Branco and Sina Khatibi are working on the definition of the Wireless Cloud Architecture, within T3.5. INOV’s perspective of the Wireless Cloud Architecture was circulated within WP3 and presented in T2.3 and WP4 meeting in Aveiro. The review process to D2.1 “Reference Scenarios and Technical System Requirements Definition” has finished, with INOV’s contribution on requirements for Technical Domain B – Access Network Infrastructure Cloud.

The consolidation of the Joint Research Activities for all tasks is being prepared. Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak are setting up a JRA on the topic of MIMO channel modelling for on-body communications, with PUT – Poznan Univ. of Technology.

Daniel Sebastião has finalised the work on D.A.6 “Final report on exploitation and dissemination”, which focuses on the final results for the dissemination actions held within the project. The contributions to the Final and 3rd Year Reports have also been submitted.
