    • Summary – Technological acceleration and internationalization of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) based in the Azores, Madeira or the Canaries. Following an Open Call and some outreach events in 2017, in September 2017 16 Macaronésia SMEs (2 Madeira, 2 Azores and 12 Canary Islands) were selected to benefit 60 hours of personalized strategic and technological consulting. These companies are developing a project during the year 2018, with the support of FIWARE tools and specialists from the FIMAC consortium to create new business opportunities internationally. The projects of these 16 companies were evaluated in the first quarter of 2019 by an international jury and 7 were selected to receive, by the end of 2019, additional specialized training in internationalization, with a view to the subsequent expansion outside the islands and their commercial strategy, participation in R & D projects and international trade agreements
  • Wiki based Organization Meta Modeling, Design and Implementation – ARDITI (2014 – 2015)
    • Summary – The main goal of this project is to continue ongoing work realizing a long-term research plan that aims to develop a software platform to support collaborative and semantic web-based production of organizational (enterprise/company) models and diagrams that specify organizational processes, human and software responsibilities, information flows, procedures and other kinds of organizational artifacts. Such models should consist in a continuously and collaboratively updated “picture” of the reality of an enterprise that guides its collaborators in: (1) the perception of the global “organizational self” (2) the execution of their operational work and (3) the creative process of changing the organization itself, including or not the change or implementation of software and related information technology. The information present in the produced models should also support automated or semi-automated generation of: (1) runnable workflows; (2) formal requirements for software to support such workflows and (3) concrete software and interface program code.
  • eletronicgovernment@e-island.RAM-eletronicgovernment@e-island.RAM
    • Summary – Research and Development (R & D) services, in the area of Information and Communication Technologies (STIC), within the scope of the eletronicgovernment@e-island.RAM project. Requirements for: (1) dematerialization of DRAPPS internal workflows with a workflow system, as well as services provided to the citizen to be made available online; (2) Integration of the portal and workflow platform with the legacy systems of other regional and national governmental entities. Collaboration and consultancy in the production of the requirements for future public procurement of implementation of the systems designed.
  • Unify and increase accessibility in SESARAM, E.P.E existing database
    • Summary – It is intended to work the existing database in SESARAM, EPE, realizing a dynamic development approach according to the Rapid Application Development (RAD) method and spiral development, so that there is a quick detection of inconsistencies in the system requirements and more effective adaptation of the system to the real needs of users. A scholarship for scientific research was awarded to the project, being a student of the MSc in Computer Engineering of UMa to execute the respective work, financed by this scholarship.
