Purpose and goal
The aim of the project was to build european consortiums within the field of security, robustnes and reliability. In our case we focused our efforts towards edge-datacenters and the challanges related to these. We have during the project established several relevant new relations and contacts, and built a strong team within the area. We have also been invited to existing project proposal consortiums, that have resulted in two H2020 project applications. Our conclusion is that our project has met the aims and objectives defined in the proposal.
Expected results and effects
Having submitted two H2020 proposals, and had everything in order for an ECSEL proposal, all within the project timeframe, we feel very pleased with the results. We continue our efforts in planning and driving projects in the field of reliability of datacenters, that will strengthen our (and Swedens) position in the highly important field. An important lesson learned (confirmation), is that we need to spend even more efforts in establishing personal contacts with European and international partners, in key contries, to be even more succesful when in comes setting up European projects.
Planned approach and implementation
We have contributed at several industry events, such as DCD energy smart and Datacloud to meet industry partners. We have also participated and presenter project proposals at brokerage events organised by ECSEL and Eureka. These efforts have contributed to with several new contacs, but requires continuity to result in real projects, - personal network is important. The efforts have been focused towards establishing new contacts and push the include/highlight the importance of datacenter reliability in European projects.
