The SOSIA Pole gives priority to development and implementation of programs, projects and activities mainly related to the following areas:
- Management of environmental risks and land management study and development of applications in close collaboration with the domain’s stakeholders, which allow for integration of prevention and mitigation measures, monitoring and alert systems, emergency management (hydro-geological risk; environmental pollution in air, land, rivers and sea, flooding and coastal erosion). Definition of a temporal roadmap that provides support for the development of a structured program for the recovery and environmental control of the territory of the Region of Liguria.
The program will be based both on the rational integration of existing systems, applications, products and technologies, and on the integration of innovative elements deriving from new projects.
- Cybersecurity: critical infrastructures, including industrial control systems for energy production and distribution, supply chains, and transport. Data security, digital identity and applications in emerging computing paradigms (web, mobile, cloud and Internet-of-Things). Application security and security by design. Controlled sharing of information and classified documents. Cybersecurity training platforms. Elaboration of an innovative development plan for cybersecurity with the creation of regional centers of excellence in the field of research and industrial production.
- Innovative ICT systems for the Smart Factory and automation: reference to the FI SharedLab-Liguria initiative and to the National Smart Factory Cluster: customized production systems; strategies, methods and tools for industrial sustainability; systems for the enhancement of people in factories; high efficiency production systems; innovative production processes; evolutionary and adaptive production systems; strategies and management for next-generation production systems.
