New H2020 ICT-41 5G Project VITAL-5G kicks off!

On the 26 and 27 of January 2021, a new 5G Research and Innovation project VITAL-5G: Vertical Innovations in Transport And Logistics over 5G experimentation facilities held a successful online kick-off meeting with the participation of 16 partners and the coordination of WINGS ICT SOLUTIONS INFORMATION & COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES IKE (WINGS ICT Solutions) by Konstantinos Trichias.

VITAL-5G is part of 5G PPP Phase 3b ICT-41 projects and will last for 3 years. The pan-European Transport & Logistics (T&L) eco-system is considered one of the main adopters of 5G, and as such, the successful transfer of 5G-empowered services from trials/pilot stages to production depends highly on the availability of flexible and intuitive tools and APIs for design, management and orchestration of their services. VITAL-5G prioritises this ambition and plans to overcome, through its intuitive and production-ready NetApps orchestration platform with open repository, various limitations that exist today for industry verticals keen to design and deploy T&L virtualised services in a 5G network.

Mr. Christos Skoufis, Dr. George Guirgis, and Vasilis Machamint R&D Project Managers, represented eBOS at the online kick-off-meeting. During the meeting all the partners introduced their organisations and the discussion was mainly focused on the role of each partner in the project and the work that needs to be performed under each Work Package, especially during the first 6 months of the project. Moreover, the main goal was to establish a common vision for the project.

EBOS will lead the Quality assurance of the project and will have the responsibility of organizing and supervising quality review/peer reviews for all deliverables including the implementation of the quality management plan. EBOS will be also in charge of performing project quality evaluation criteria, risk assessment, continuous monitoring, triggering quality assurance project reviews, risk assessment procedures, evaluation measurements and producing risk and quality review reports. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 101016567.
