Shell promoted the research project “Domestic, sharing and interoperability systems for comfortable, safety and sustainable ambient of living”.

Life technologies, in particular technologies for home living, are actually one of the most interesting theme at national and international level. Inside this scenario, it works together: important research, proposition and exploration activities of new models and technologies; important activities of technological and industrial development to find new solutions.

Interoperability and sharing data with more important structures (ex Smart Grid) are universally recognised as causes that not allow a rapid development of this sector. According to Smart Home, these activities allow the achievement of high efficiency, comfort and security. For this reason, the first aim of the project is to develop knowledge and skills of technologies for ambient living, with particular focus on interoperability, sharing, energetic management, comfort and security problems.

The participant of the project reach these objectives only if they have specific R&D competences and a holistic vision of the systems. Today, it is not enough have specific competences on particular technologies used in smart home, but firms must be able to manage and design advanced devices, for an interoperability home system. It is necessary so to have a large number of researchers and technics with higher knowledge and skills in this sector. They have to know the international innovation trend and they have to add value in enterprises.

The project so foresees 2 different structured professional figures:

  • 7 Units EX (Expert Technic) for the development of technologies for interoperability ambient living;
  • 7 Units ER (Expert Research) for the development of technologies for interoperability ambient living.

This 2 figures will receive different educational paths, one technic oriented and only for undergraduates of industrial and information fields, the other one research oriented, only for postgraduates of the same fields. Both paths promote preparation on corporate culture, management of innovation projects and their exploitation. This 2 figures will receive different educational paths, one technic oriented and only for undergraduates of industrial and information fields, the other one research oriented, only for postgraduates of the same fields. Both paths promote preparation on corporate culture, management of innovation projects and their exploitation. According with the necessity to provide not only specific R&D skills, but also a holistic vision of the system, the educational paths are multidisciplinary and oriented on interoperability and integration of different technologies. For both figures, there will be a phase of coaching and Project work in the company.

The educational project so is a completing part of technologies for ambient living, and in particular for Smart Home. Its aim is to combine the industrial needs and to have in short term innovative and competitive products, with a high knowledge of research and innovation paths.

The system of enterprises (large and SM) located in Cluster’s Regions, can take big advantages thanks to this project of educational and professional figures.
