SignalGenerix To Deliver Emerging Signal Processing Technologies

SignalGenerix To Deliver Emerging Signal Processing Technologies

Following its recent success at the European Business Awards, in which the company is selected as the ‘National Champion’, the Cypriot R&D company SignalGeneriX announces that it has secured two new and major EU contracts in the area of Future Emerging Technologies and Information Communication Technologies. The two projects, which total budget of 12Meuros, combine the efforts of leading research institutes, internationally recognised universities and innovative high-tech SMEs across Europe. Through its participation in the VISORSURF and MOVECARE projects SignalGeneriX consolidates its leading position in Signal Processing and Communications R&D. It further reinforces its long-term high-level collaboration with top research organisations such as the German Fraunhofer Institute and builds new dynamic collaborations with important European technology organisations, academic institutions and technology companies.

The project VIROSURF (A Hardware Platform for Software-driven Functional Metasurfaces) is funded with 6M euro under the European Commission flagship program H2020 FET-Open for "Novel ideas for radically new technologies". It aims to support the early stages of joint science and technology research for radically new future technological possibilities. The project, which is coordinated by the Foundation for Research and Technology (CERTH), brings together SignalGeneriX the leading Fraunhofer Institute, the University of Cyprus, Aalto University and the Nano Networking Center of Catalunya, in an effort to develop ground breaking software-controlled metasurfaces and nanonetworks. These will lay the foundations for the development technologies beyond the state-of-the-art and will inspire ground breaking engineering functionalities. Such functionalities are expected to include total electromagnetic radiation absorption, filtering and steering of light and sound signals, as well as the development of nano-antennas for sensors and future implantable devices.

The MOVECARE (Multiple-actors Virtual Empathic Caregiver for the Elder) project is funded at the level of 6M euro under the EU framework H2020-ICT-2016. The project is coordinated by University of Milano and combines the efforts of fourteen European organisations. It is aimed at the development of an innovative multi-actor platform that integrates an existing robotic system with domotic sensors, smart objects, a virtual community and an activity center, to provide assistance, transparent monitoring and activities to the elderly at home. This is to be achieved through a full-fledged, modular, personalized, and compliant approach which does not require the elderly to wear any particular device or to change their normal habits.

The company’s CEO Dr Tasos Kounoudes stated “We are delighted that our company is again selected by the highest EU technology companies, research institutions and universities as an equal partner. This is also a recognition that at SignalGeneriX we are continuously investing in the development of world class research infrastructure and enhancing our research and development team both of which are essential for the development of breakthrough technologies. These two new contracts, which will start in 2017, is an acknowledgement for the hard work of our researchers and engineers and the quality of our work. This success for a Cypriot Innovation company is very important at this specific timing since it is evident that growth can be achieved through investment in innovation.”
