The overall objective of the project is to improve the research potential and capability of selected WBC research centres and to develop them into wireless sensor networking centres of excellence capable of driving the research agenda and serving as a seed for development of other similar centres in the region. The main course of action will be to leverage already achieved results and continue building established relationship between the WBC and the EU institutions and researchers through collaboration on specific use cases with high significance for socio-economic needs of the WB countries. Two use cases, one for each WBC centre, have been selected as particularly interesting and beneficial for the WBC region: personal health monitoring systems (including systems for support of independent living) and emergency/disaster recovery applications. These use cases are the common theme of all project activities that are organized in such a way to address and explore the most important research issues relevant to the selected use cases. This will be achieved on one side through an active and organized exchange of researchers and on the other side through exchange of scientific know-how and RTD results at a series of workshops and seminars. The said activities will reinforce the research potential of the WBC and the EU’s convergence partners, providing a sustainable research platform for future needs of the region and the wider EU community.
