WP Summary

WP wide activities:

  • UoA prepared, coordinated and chaired the Blue Economy 2nd TCom full-day workshop.
  • UoA organized 2 WP6 internal meetings with I2S and CITE and led discussions on several topics via other means.
  • UoA launched and led the discussions with ICRE8 on the addition of social/environmental impact monetization approaches in Blue Economy VREs.
  • UoA prepared draft timeline for T6.1 and T6.2 deliverables covering the period until Oct 2016. An updated plan will be published early in July.

T6.1

  • I2S and UoA were represented and delivered a number of presentations in Blue Economy 2nd TCom workshop.
  • UoA Led the ongoing process of dataset selection and ingestion.
  • UOA provided support to I2S on infrastructure generic components and concepts, redirecting requests to CNR on service specific issues.
  • UoA Led the design and supervised the implementation of generic data import tools for Eurostat datasets.
  • I2S Implemented and improve the algorithms for KPIs estimation (FCR) by adding new methodologies (MARS). Integration into Statistical Manager is in progress. [Project Activity #3889]
  • Research for anonymization techniques and examine the potential usage of existing algorithms and packages in R has been performed by I2S [Project Activities #2056]
  • VRE frontend integration with user’s asset facilities (eg workspace files) is performed (ongoing) by I2S for both the portal and the algorithm [Project Activities #3889 and #2236]. Troubleshooting the usage of the Home Library API is also performed.
  • The usage of Database endpoint by the portal [Project Activities #2236] by I2S is ongoing, while troubleshooting of Liferay is also performed due to erroneous behaviour of the engine (liferay:searchContainer)
  • Launched the externalization of functionality from portlets to a RESTful service by I2S [Project Activity #4603] following UoA design suggestions.
  • I2S contributed to the simplification of techno-economic model, provided by CITE, for fitting aquaculture benchmarking needs and scope (#3485).
  • I2S validated the draft plan provided by UOA for task's interim deliveries until Oct 2016.

T6.2

  • UoA collaborated with CITE in the preparation of an early prototype demo of the Geoanalytics platform's front end, shown during the 2nd TCOM event in Heraklion.
  • UoA continued the development of the Geoanalytics platform's high performance back-end logic. (#1993, #1994)
  • UoA continued the development of the data access layer for the Geoanalytics platform (#1999) providing access to the early prototypes to CITE for integration with Geopolis.
  • UoA, CITE and I2S participated WP internal meetings.
  • UoA and CITE participated in call with CNR on the integration of the platform and datasets with the infrastructure (June 29th).
  • UoA and CITE prepared specialized material and participated to the 2nd TCOM meeting.
  • CITE validated the draft plan provided by UOA for task's interim deliveries until Oct 2016.
  • CITE continued the development of Geopolis' front-end. (#1995)
  • CITE continued the development of custom import plugins. (#4664) and progressed in the development of plugin supporting code. (#4665)
  • CITE completed the first version of the Techno-economic model and presented the principles of the model during the TCom, while delivered an Excel version of the model. The model examples are based on data gathered from desktop research and scientific literature reviewed by CITE's personnel, with the contribution of I2S (#3485).
