  • FUTON (“Fibre Optic Networks for Distributed, Extendible Heterogeneous Radio Architectures and Service Provisioning”)
  • REWIND (“RElay based WIreless Network and standarD”)
  • CONSERN (“Cooperative aNd Self-growing Energy awaRe Networks”)
  • WHERE2 (“Wireless Hybrid Enhanced Mobile Radio-Estimators, Phase 2”)

National Research Programs

  • Participation in elaboration actions for special deliverables-studies and publications and actions for the promotion of their findings in the broader business-commercial and research/academic community (especially through the participation in distinguished conference events)
  • Organisation of presentations and conduct of a seminar for the promotion of the findings of the research programs, as well as for the information regarding new trends in technology and business prospects in view of a broader community strategy and the relevant international developments in the sector of electronic communications
  • Participation in preparatory actions and submission of proposals for funded national research programs (Actions “SYNERGASIA” / ESPA from GGET)
