- Title: CyberSecPro-Collaborative, Multi-modal and Agile Professional Cybersecurity Training Program for A Skilled Workforce In the European Digital Single Market and Industries

Abstract: EU Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have more than 128 cybersecurity academic programs (undergraduate and graduate) as identified by ENISA (CyberHEAD), JRC (ATLAS) and a variety of reports by the 4 pilot projects (Sparta, CyberSec4Europe, ECHO, CONCORDIA). These academic programs, with their static curricula, do not provide the dynamic capabilities and emerging skills needed in the market. The digital transformation imposes the HEIs to enhance their role in preparing the new generation workforce and to upskill the existing one in meeting the challenging and ever-growing cybersecurity challenges (e.g., massive AI attacks). 
Seventeen (17) HEIs and thirteen (13) security companies from sixteen (16) Member States propose the agile CyberSecPro professional cybersecurity practical and hands-on training program that will complement, support and advance the existing academic programs by linking innovation, research, industry, academia and SME support. CyberSecPro aims to bridge the gap between degrees, working-life and marketable cybersecurity skill sets necessary in the digitalization efforts and become the best practice for all cybersecurity training programs.

Duration: 36 months

- Title: REMARKABLE- Rural Environmental Monitoring via ultra wide-ARea networKs And distriButed federated Learning

Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) technology combined with complementary support for data analytics is the corner stone of today's digital transformation. The societal and economic impact of IoT/ML systems in urban and suburban areas significantly outpaces the one in rural areas due to a limited reach of connectivity infrastructure. To reverse further widening of the urban-rural gap, we need to bring efficient and affordable IoT/ML solutions to deep rural areas, reaching out to applications and use cases ranging from wildlife management, rural tourism, livestock monitoring, water and air pollution control, and others. By identifying main gaps in connectivity and affordable data analytics and through interleaved research, development and validation in a real-world setting, REMARKABLE will address the challenge of bringing IoT and data analytics systems a step closer to seamless, energy efficient and secure deployment in
rural ares. The consortium composed of six European academic partners, five companies and five associated partners representing leading academic groups from Africa, will focus on research, development, innovation and demonstration across five use cases with six demonstration sites located in rural areas across the European and African continent. The inter-disciplinary nature of the programme provides a unique opportunity for investigation of smart sensing, IoT and data science technology from non-traditional, holistic perspectives leading to new scientific achievements and innovations. Project outputs like smart IoT sensors and devices, rural IoT digital twining platforms, ultra wide-area IoT networks, novel data analytics models and architectures will find their routes to the market via active industrial partners. The project will impact EU workforce market via new interdisciplinary skills for young contributors and form new long-lasting networks of European and African institutions in the area of sensing, IoT, big data analytics and rural entrepreneurship.

Duration: 48 months

Research database includes 2 DEISI/COPELABS professors among most influential in the world

Two DEISI/COPELABS professors have been ranked among the most influential researchers in the world according to a database created by Journal Plos Biology. The study carried out at Stanford University, in the USA, is published every year and assesses researchers in two different perspectives: one assessing scientists for career-long citation impact (Table-S6-career-2020) and another assessing scientists for single-year impact up until the end of 2020 (Table-S7-singleyr-2020).
The list of most influential researchers in 2020 includes Prof. Marko Beko and Prof. Slavisa Tomic. The database lists the 100,000 most influential scientists in the world, according to the composite citation index and other criteria. In addition, the list also includes scientists who are not in the top 100,000 according to the composite index but are nevertheless within the top 2% of scientists of their main subfield discipline.
According to the database, citation metrics are widely used, but not always correctly. For this reason, Plos Biology created a publicly available database that features the 100,000 leading scientists on the planet, considering standardized information on citations, h index, multi-author hm index, citations of articles in different authoring positions and a composite indicator. In this database, the separate data is shown for impact throughout the career and single year.
Also according to the document, “metrics are provided with and without self-citations and proportion of citations for cited articles. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields. Field and subfield specific percentiles are also provided for all scientists who have published at least five articles. The data for career-long citation impact will be updated by the end of 2020 “.
