Context Data Cloud @Software Campus

Thursday, 11/22/2012, 22:32:51

I am proud to announce that I have been chosen as a participant of this year's Software Campus initiative!


Software CampusSoftware Campus trains the IT leaders of tomorrow. It is aimed at excellent Master's and PhD students of information technology and young professionals from other disciplines with the relevant IT knowledge.
In close collaboration with strong partners from industry and research, Software Campus participants develop innovative academic IT projects and benefit from an individually tailored training curriculum with outstanding academics and managers. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) provides funding of up to EUR 100,000 for each IT project.
Software Campus integrates leading research and practical experience in a new type of concept in order to create a new generation of top managers and entrepreneurs with an excellent IT background. ( Software Campus)

IT Project - Context Data Cloud

My accepted IT project is the Context Data Cloud, which is a cloud platform based on the semantic principles of Linked Data for managing and providing context-aware services. The system avoids the problems classic context managament frameworks have and ties context providers, consumers as well as context-aware service developers to a cloud ecosystem.

Software Campus Kick-off Event

Software Campus Kick-offToday, we had the Kick-off event of this year's Software Campus class! All participants were put into different groups and each group came up with a play/story showing the audience how their projects can support creating a better world. By doing so, everybody got to know each other and the micro projects funded through the Software Campus initiative.
The day before, all participants supported by Telekom as the industry partner, were invited to an internal welcome meeting. Here, we got to know who our Telekom mentor will be throughout the project and what kind of other projects are supported by different Telekom departments.

All in all, the Software Campus program seems to be very promising. I am very thankful being one of the participants and I really see it as an opportunity to prepare myself for management positions in the future.

Accepted Project Proposal "FlashPoll"

Monday, 11/05/2012, 01:51:48

SNET has collaborated along with its partners on a project proposal for the EIT ICT 2013 Call for Activities. I am pleased to announce that the project has been nominated for execution in the EIT ICT Business Plan 2013.


EIT ICT LabsEIT ICT Labs is an Innovation Factory for ICT Innovation in Europe, with 13 innovation action lines acting as their production lines. They address key societal issues in a number of selected areas for which ICT can bring forward significant improvements. EIT ICT action lines include Computing in the Cloud, Cyber-Physical Systems, Digital Cities of the Future, Networking Solutions for Future Media, Health and Wellbeing, ICT-mediated Human Activity, Intelligent Mobility and Transportation Systems, Internet Technologies and Architecture, Smart Energy Systems, Smart Spaces, Privacy Security and Trust in Information Society, as well as Doctoral and Master School.

The strategic Business Plan of EIT ICT Labs is to become a leading force in ICT innovation in Europe through integrating and reorganizing the knowledge triangle of education, research, and business (ERB). The Business Plan 2013 of EIT ICT Labs is composed of activities belonging to Action Lines integrating ERB, as well as activities developing and maintaining specific ERB catalysts and offering their services to action lines.


Within the scope of the action line Digital Cities of the Future and in the area of Urban Planning, our aim is to develop a tool called FlashPoll that allows for better, more satisfying and more consistent communication between administrators and citizens by implementing flash polls through an internet platform, which also facilitates the involvement of (citizen) experts in municipal decision making processes. This project enables the realization of a citizen-centric city paradigm allowing governments and municipalities to introduce new policies and enhancing the participation of citizens in the information, decision, and implementation processes for a better life in the city within democratic governance.

FlashPoll is a joint project consisting of the following partners: TU Berlin (Service-centric Networking, Quality and Usability Lab, Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft), Telekom Innovation Laboratories, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Alfstore and Missions Publiques
