Proposal Outline: The Consortium will develop and validate a new generation of cost effective miniature IoT sensors and technological platform that will enable personal emotions estimation and health monitoring. The SESEM platform will be able to integrate different technologies across multiple fields including multimodal sensing, advanced processing, secure wireless communication to the back end for storage and big data analysis capability.
The project will develop improved sensing modules including cost effective miniaturisation, improved manufacturing process and leading to high performance in specificity/sensitivity, reliability, time to results and manufacturability. The SESEM platform will use modular approaches enabling integration of standard and new components and interfaces. The development will improve issues like portability, wearability, biocompatibility, operation in remote and low power consumption for sensing modules.
User needs, market oportunities and business cases will be analyzed and addressed in the proposal. Issues related to security, safety, privacy, standardisation, interoperability, certification, life cycle, regulation compliance and ethics will be considered.
The project will demonstrate innovative, useful, market driven, sustainable smart system platform prototype/s that will be useful for professionals and the future end users.

Context: It is in the EU’s strategic interest to ensure that the EU retains and develops the essential capacities to secure its digital economy, society and democracy. To achieve that the EU needs to make a better use of its research and innovation capacities spread across the EU.
As a first step in this direction, the European Commission is conducting a mapping of the existing centres of expertise in the field of cybersecurity (e.g. university department, research centre, etc). The results of this mapping will be translated into a “Cybersecurity Atlas” (an index of existing EU cybersecurity Centres) that will be made publicly available. This Atlas aims at becoming a valuable tool and a reference for the cybersecurity community to look for potential partners and pool resources.
How to register your organisation: The registration tool allows your organisation to share information about your cybersecurity work, expertise as well as your contact details.
Filling in the survey should take between 20 minutes and one hour depending on the level of details you wish to share. The registration tool will be open until 15 February 2018. We thank you for your cooperation! Please do not hesitate to share information about the registration tool with your partners and any other relevant stakeholders!
