Reports to EU

As a research and innovation project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme, TCBL issues formal reports on its interim results as work progresses. Many of these, known as ‘deliverables’, are publicly available and can be downloaded from the TCBL information page on the European Commission’s CORDIS research portal. The reports are divided into three categories: ‘documents and reports’, ‘other’ (mainly related to software development) and ‘websites, patent filings, videos, etc.’

Documents and reports

This report documents criteria and process of the selection of Knowledge Champions and provides the directory of Knowledge Champions. Moreover, it provides an overview of the selected content and discussions for igniting the Knowledge Spaces including a summary of the knowledge captured and key statistics.

Update on D8.1, deriving the dissemination and communication objectives and tasks for each project partner for this period.

Defines the perimeter and dynamics of the overall TCBL ecosystem across and in light of the value modelling tri-als, scenario building and governance toolbox analyses carried out in Tasks T6.4 and T6.5 above. In the context of the Technical Ecosystem Framework set forth in D6.1 and the stakeholder dynamics monitored in Task 6.3, this deliverable analyses the transactional value of the business relationships emerging in the project in terms of the specific benefits for each of the stakeholders involved. Drawing on specific cases of service models hypothesized by the Business Labs and composed by Business Pilots to define innovative business scenarios, the value added of each of the TCBL elements in these processes is generalized to form a high-level business model framework. The governance implications of these processes, as captured by Task 6.5, are in parallel developed together with pro-posed models and solutions to be tested in the successive phases, leading towards a final governance model for the sustainability of the TCBL ecosystem.

Document explaining the overall communication strategy to disseminate the project’s results, conclusions and recommendations and the general plan to implement the strategy in order to achieve the stated goals for the pe-riod, including the derivation of objectives and tasks for each project partner according to its main business activi-ties and stakeholder connections, determination and commitment to individual and conjoint dissemination actions.

Delivers the common cloud infrastructure for all of the ICT services supporting the TCBL ecosystem, based on the FI-PPP’s FI-WARE platform. This will involve first identifying the FI-WARE Generic Enablers relevant to TCBL re-quirements, including inter alia the CKAN Open Data portal and the Context Broker, and then opening a FI-LAB in-stance with the required features. In addition, this deliverable specifies the interoperability requirements (APIs, data models, etc.) related to the ICT components that make up the Knowledge Spaces and the Business Services, as well as potential future services.

A general description of the pilot experimentation and business support framework, with needs and re-quirements of the Business System Pilots as derived from interaction with local actors in partner territo-ries. This includes an identification of potential Business System Experiments (including the required Ser-vice Concepts from the different Business Labs) as well as a hypothesis set of transition scenarios to be tested in the first round of piloting in year 2. Report on the specifications for the 1st Call for Expressions of Interest (EoI) for the selection of the Business System Pilots to participate in the first round of piloting and results of the evaluation.

Other deliverables

This deliverable (consisting of a technical description and user guide) documents the publication of the bpSquare platform, made available to the consortium and external pilot users for the forthcoming, planned experimentation tasks, in parallel to the Knowledge Spaces described in WP1 and delivered in launch version as D1.1.

This deliverable (in various subsequent editions) constitutes the knowledge repository of bpSquare, which can be accessed by registered profiles free of charge all along the project duration.

This deliverable describes the initial version of TCBL knowledge spaces. It comes with a requirements analysis that covers the needs of the other work packages together with the most common and necessary ICT requirements of the stakeholders, associates, labs and consortium members. The deliverable features as well a first outline of the distributes architecture for TCBL knowledge spaces, together with concise de-scriptions of the main software systems and interfaces to third party services like e.g. LinkedIn or Face-book. D1.1 illustrates as well the planned steps for setting up, configuring and populating the TCBL Knowledge Spaces. The second section of D1.1 describes the requirements analysis for the gamification framework and the gamification needs in TCBL. It comes with an analysis of interesting social gaming features and principles. The section details how the gamification methodology will be chosen, put together, implemented and validated and comes with a first gamification approach to be implemented. The third section of D1.1 is about AR tracking and experience extraction. A technology readiness analysis identifies current trends in experience capturing and sharing (with market size and market penetration prognosis). As well, requirements for experience capturing and sharing tools are identified, including the integration with TCBL knowledge spaces.

The second WP1 deliverable describes the internal pilot version of TCBL knowledge spaces. It comes with a description of the architecture of the TCBL Knowledge Spaces, including brief descriptions of the com-ponents and interfaces. A validation of the chosen specifications together with a SWOT analyses to iden-tify potentials for improvement complete that section. The second section of D1.2 describes the progress in AR tracking and experience extraction. The report describes the selected components with their specifications, trial scenarios and validation results. The AR integration with TCBL knowledge spaces is demonstrated. The third section of D1.2 is about Task 1.4. It starts with an identification of requirements for intelligence for learning on business model development and evolution. Possible approaches are described, compared and discussed. Further, the planned implementation procedure is discussed.

Websites, patent filings, videos, etc.

Aggregation of a varied set of communication tools to be used in digital and print format, such as brochures, leaf-lets and roll-ups (templates and guidelines report).

Website that will serve as an interface for the project’s stakeholders and users and as a portal to related public spaces including co-creation spaces.

Report on the proceedings of the first TEDx conference of TCBL and a Video presenting results obtained during the first year of the project, including shootings on location and interviews with key T&C stakeholders and consortium members
