Universities, R&D Groups and Academic Networks

WEBIST is a unique forum for universities, research groups and research projects to present their research and scientific results, be it by presenting a paper, hosting a tutorial or instructional course or demonstrating its research products in demo sessions, by contributing towards panels and discussions in the event's field of interest or by presenting their project, be it by setting up an exhibition booth, by being profiled in the event's web presence or printed materials or by suggesting keynote speakers or specific thematic sessions.

Special conditions are also available for Research Projects which wish to hold meetings at INSTICC events.

The objective of the EAGLE project is to enable the 13,000 SME members of the SME AGs to increase their market penetration in the design, manufacture and installation of Renewable Energy Technologies, through an intelligent web-based renewable energy platform.

PROWESS project

This project will develop advanced software engineering approaches to improve quality assurance: the challenge is to reduce time spent on testing, whilst increasing software quality, in order to quickly launch new, or enhancements of existing, web services and internet applications. We will develop this property-based testing for web services and internet applications in order to achieve a real improvement of testing efficiency.

Social&Smart (SandS)

Social&Smart (SandS) is a EU funded research project starting on November 2012. Its goal is to build up a physical and computational networked infrastructure allowing household appliances to better meet the needs of their owners. With this Internet of Thing structure we virtually inject intelligence into the appliances.


GeoKnow is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission within the FP7 Information and Communication Technologies Work Programme (Grant Agreement No. 318159). GeoKnow addresses the problem of linking geospatial data from heterogeneous information systems and uses the web as a platform to exploit this data.


The USEFIL project aims to address the gap between technological research advances and the practical needs of elderly people by developing advanced but affordable in-home unobtrusive monitoring and web communication solutions. More specifically, USEFIL intends to use low cost "off-the-shelf" technology to develop immediately applicable services that will assist the elderly in maintaining their independence and keep their social life active. The systems and applications that will be developed will unobtrusively record:
- elderly behavioural indicators for problems such as cognitive decline or geriatric depression
- emotional status
- health vital signs
- activities of daily living
- supply information services;


OPENi – Open-Source, Web-Based, Framework for Integrating Applications with Cloud-based Services and Personal Cloudlets.
OPENi aims at inspiring innovation in the European mobile applications industry, by radically improving the interoperability of cloud-based services and trust in personal cloud storage through the development of a consumer-centric, open source mobile cloud applications platform.
