The IoTalentum project in which the BISITE Research Group participates continues to achieve its objectives. The project is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Horizon 2020 European Training Network on the Internet of Things. The overall objective of IoTalentum is to provide high-level training in the field of next generation IoT to a new generation of ESRs (Early Stage Researchers).
Among its main objectives is to develop comprehensive, autonomous and flexible control ( using artificial intelligence techniques) to achieve a heterogeneous 5G-based heterogeneous next generation IoT infrastructure. It also proposes new cybersecurity solutions and develops smart grids.
IoTalentum trains 15 early-stage researchers, who will be recruited during the implementation of the project. For this reason, Mahmoud Abbasi has joined the BISITE Research Group in order to develop his doctoral thesis and participate in the achievement of the project’s objectives.
Training, research and synergies in IoTalentum
This initiative has been running for almost two years and several activities have been carried out during this time. Juan Manuel Corchado, Director of the BISITE Group is a member of the board of supervisors, and his vast experience has allowed him to provide valuable information to PhD students through initiatives such as the online “Workshop on Open Science“, at which he introduced the Open Access and Open Science publishing models to early-stage researchers.
On the basis of this workshop, the free course “An IoTalentum training course for ESR students” has been designed on the Moocs e4you platform, if you are interested you can register here.
Three Networking Meetings have also been held, which aim to bring together researchers and partner organisations to share ideas, update knowledge and create alliances. PhD students, including our colleague Mahmoud Abbasi, were able to participate in specialised workshops focused on IoT Infrastructures: Networking and Computing, Ethics and Scientific Integrity.
