The kickoff meeting of HELNET took place on September at Volos, where the partners of the four Greek Testbeds (University of Thessaly, University of Patras, National Technical University of Athens and University of Athens) discussed on the upcoming developments for federating their platforms.
Opportunities for a more integrated view point for carrying out ICT-related research, enabled by the federated experimentation environment, for Greek researchers.
Attractive and high-skilled environment for international researchers to join Greek research groups.
Corresponding impact creation, and position improvement in international research and experimentation frameworks.
Enhancing opportunities for SMEs for collaboration not only in pure research but also in pilot, pre-product activities enabled by the possibility of extended experimentation on a e.g. new application, further strengthened by interactions with international experimenters.
