2022 has undoubtedly been a year of success for the BISITE Research Group. We have over 100 employees, who participate in a hundred national and international projects that help us to promote technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cybersecurity, Blockchain and IoT.
We make up a multidisciplinary team that also has professionals from areas such as economics, administration, bioinformatics, or even audiovisual, design and communication. Together we shape each of the projects in which we participate.
Throughout the year we have launched valuable projects and completed many others. Some of them are:
SMARTSEA: The MSc on Smart Maritime & Marine Systems SMARTSEA project has developed an advanced and interactive master’s degree related to maritime IoT applications that empowers people with the skills and knowledge needed to work in the growing maritime industry. Last year, the first ever group of 20 students completed the program.
DISRUPTIVE: a project aimed at cross-border cooperation between Spain and Portugal for the improvement of research and innovation (R&I) infrastructures and for the development of excellence in R&I, and the promotion of centers of competence, especially those of European interest. The project was successfully completed, as all the proposed objectives were achieved.
Some of the other projects in which we continue to collaborate are:
TECTONIC: an initiative that promotes cross-sector collaboration between academic and non-academic professionals (technical experts, archaeologists, conservators, geologists, engineers, computer scientists) working on different topics related to Underwater Cultural Heritage.
IoTalentum: is based on an EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network on the Internet of Things. IoTalentum provides interdisciplinary and comprehensive training and research in IoT: infrastructures, cybersecurity and applications to 15 Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs).
We hope to successfully complete each of the projects in which we participate, as well as find new opportunities to continue growing as a group in 2023.
