AIOTI organized a webinar on 7 June, presenting the open call opportunities.
AIOTI Task Force Replicability and Scalability has prepared a White Paper A Replicability and Scalability Assessment tool which was presented on the 27th of June.
The Replicability and Scalability initiative has the objective to facilitate the reusage of IoT and Edge computing use cases and solutions developed in European funded projects. A number of projects are developing and experimenting use cases and solutions that could be advantageously replicated in other locations in order to avoid reinventing the wheel syndrome.
For that purpose, the Replicability and Sustainability AIOTI Task Force has decided to work on an assessment tool able to qualify each use case /solution in terms of replicability level in order to give relevant information to developers that are willing to replicate them.
This white paper is proposing a methodology as well as a tool (questionnaire) that allow an accurate study of use case / Solution. It covers 5 dimensions that need to be addressed to qualify a result and it has been developed in cooperation with the Horizon Result Platform and the Horizon Result Booster projects with the objective to use it for other sectors.
A questionnaire has been developed based on the topics identified for each dimension, this questionnaire will be used to define the replicability level of a specific solution. For each question a number of points is allocated and the level will be defined according to a minimum number of points. These levels will be fixed after a pilot which will help to identify the relevant thresholds.
At the end of this month, AIOTI has 186 members.
The main objective of this vision paper is to identify the steps to be followed to develop societal resilience toward short-term and long-term risks. The purpose is to showcase the best practices and insights needed to (1) SENSE, (2) RESPOND, (3) DEFEND, and (4) RECOVER within the IoT domain by involving all key stakeholders of this value chain. According to the World Health Organization, the emergency cycle is divided into four different phases: (1) Prevent; (2) Prepare; (3) Respond, and (4) Recover. Hence, this whitepaper aims to cover the four phases of emergency management as an integrated overview of four different fields of threats: 1. Pandemics and other Health-related threats, 2. Natural Disasters, 3. Cyber Attacks, and 4. Attacks on Public Spaces.

It covers 5 dimensions that need to be addressed to qualify a result and it has been developed in cooperation with the Horizon Result Platform and the Horizon Result Booster projects with the objective to use it in other domains than IoT and Edge Computing.
A questionnaire has been developed based on the topics identified for each dimension, this questionnaire will be used to define the replicability level of a specific solution. For each question a number of points is allocated and the level will be defined according to a minimum number of points. Three levels have been pre-defined (High replicability, Medium replicability and Low replicability). They will be adjusted after running a specific pilot which will help to identify the relevant thresholds.
A pilot will be conducted with the Smart Network and Services call 1 projects which are ready to collaborate in order to get an idea of the replicability of the development planned in their respective projects.
During this month, AIOTI representatives participated and speak at the following events:
Tanya Suarez AIOTI Management Board Member moderated at The Economist Metaverse Summit.Natalie Samovich WG Energy Chair participated on the panel of InnoGrid Between urgency and energy transition: getting the balance right.
Georgios Karagiannis WG Standardisation Chair participated at the panel on the EUCnC conference.
Francois Fischer, WG Mobility Chair was speaking at Workshop Edge DG Connect & DECISION.

Virtual workshop on ‘What should a Local Digital Twin (LDT) toolbox look like?’ , 12 July 2023, Online
The Digitalisation of Energy Action Plan adopted on 18 October 2022, called for the development of a Common European Reference Framework, including an open-source reference implementation, for a consumer application that allows for voluntary reductions in energy consumption and thereby help reduce energy costs.
To support this work, DG CONNECT initiated the DIGITAL call for the EU Energy Saving Reference Framework – launched on 11 May 2023, open until 26 September 2023. The objective of this call for proposals is to establish and promote the widespread adoption of a Common European Reference Framework (CERF) for energy-saving applications throughout the EU. This framework will include an open-source reference implementation, for energy and cost saving consumer applications. This reference framework is designed for integration into both commercial and non-commercial applications.
The current brokerage event aims to create a forum for potential applicants to discuss ideas and cooperation opportunities, as well as to clarify potential questions they might have with regard the call text.
The first part of the event will be dedicated to the presentation of the call by the European Commission representatives, followed by a Q&A session. During the second part of the event attendees are encouraged to share proposal ideas for the call, which may constitute opportunities for consortia formation, and present pitches, as well as information on organisations willing to contribute to the preparation of proposals.
Please inform us by the 26 of June 2023 regarding your willingness to present a pitch (3 minutes) and/or information on your organisation as potential consortium partner (1 minute), at CNECT-E4@ec.europa.eu
Register here for the event.
