Interdisciplinary Project Initiatives

IICREST has contributed to a number of projects proposals, such as: Li-La (Library of Labs), EU-SOLE (Employees' Upskilling through Service-Oriented Learning Environments), SACOS (Secure ad-hoc Communication System), and INFRA-TWIN (Capacity Building for EU Critical Infrastructures to Increase Preparedness and Resilience during Pandemics). Some other minor activities concern Affective Computing, Cloud Computing, Traffic Management, and Tele-Dermatology.

Further, IICREST has supported several knowledge transfer initiatives (supposed to benefit the developments in Bulgaria) that have not yet given results however:
- Geneva-Sofia exchange (municipality level);
- Rotterdam-Burgas exchange (municipality level);
- Thessaloniki-Sofia exchange (enterprise level).

Finally, we are currently looking for partners to advance research in: ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY FOR AREA AND BORDER SECURITY, and among the topics of interest are:
- enterprise models concerning border security
- situation-aware border security control
- rules and regulations at the border
- privacy aspects of border security
