Work Packages

In order to achieve the objectives of SERRANO, the work plan is divided into seven (7) Work Packages (WP):

  • WP1 – Project Technical and Administrative Management
  • WP2 – Requirements and System Design
  • WP3 – Hardware and Software Platforms for Enhanced Security
  • WP4 – Cloud and Edge Acceleration
  • WP5 – Intelligent Service and Resource Orchestration
  • WP6 – Platform Integration and Testing, Use Cases Development and Evaluation
  • WP7 – Business Modelling, Dissemination, Exploitation and Standardization

WP1 is responsible for the overall management and coordination, and the interaction of partners, monitoring the progress of the technical outcomes and the accomplishment of the project milestones and deliverables. Work in WP2 focuses on the requirements collection and analysis, the state-of-the-art analysis, the detailed use case description, and the specification of the SERRANO platform architecture. WP3 focuses on security and privacy mechanisms for accelerated encrypted storage over heterogeneous and federated infrastructures and development of workload isolation on multi-tenant nodes. WP4 deals with the development of software and hardware -based methods for workload acceleration in edge, fog and cloud. WP5 deals with the models, algorithms and mechanisms development that enable the AI-based service orchestration, resource allocation and infrastructure monitoring. The integration of the platform and the technological developments for the three (3) use cases and their evaluation is part of WP6. Finally, WP7 includes the dissemination, communication, exploitation, sustainability, standardization, innovation and IPR management activities.
