The main contributions of this document are:
• Presentation of the main achievements during the first year of the project.
• Presentation of the communication, dissemination, and exploitation plan for the second year of the project (CoDEPv2).
DAEMON’s CoDEP includes communication, dissemination, and exploitation activities. Communication includes all the activities related to the promotion of the project and its results beyond the project’s own community. This includes explaining its research in layman's terms to the media and the public. Dissemination includes activities related to raising awareness of its results in a technical community working on the same research field. In general, this will be done through publications, and participation and organization of technical events. Finally, exploitation (in accordance with the European IPR Helpdesk) covers activities aiming at using the results in further research activities other than those covered by the project, such as developing, creating and marketing products or processes, creating and providing a service, or standardization activities.
The Raise Awareness phase, during the initial stages of the project, was focused on communication activities (e.g., setting up the web portal, social media accounts and high-level project presentations) to make the project known not just to the technical community but to a larger audience outside the project topics, including the public. Dissemination and standardization activities also started in this phase with preliminary technical ideas. In the Presentation of Results phase, dissemination and exploitation activities increased their intensity, since the architecture and NI design efforts have produced some initial research outcomes. Initial demonstrations of specific concepts of the architecture and NI solutions were also provided during this phase. However, it is in the Demos and PoCs phase where demonstration activities involving multiple blocks of the architecture working in an integrated way are expected. Finally, the Long-lasting Impact phase refers to other research or exploitation actions taken once the project is finished. This includes shaping the topics and framework of future research projects, exploiting DAEMON NI concepts in a market-oriented way by incorporating them into products and services, and leaving a footprint in standards through project contributions. The plan defines the various undertaken activities, and defines related target metrics.
Below, we highlight the main outcomes of Year 1:
• Communication
o Eight press articles covering DAEMON have been released.
o Four videos have been published.
o Τwo webinars, two workshops and a special session were organized.
o Three DAEMON public deliverables were submitted.
o DAEMON web page, as well as social media profiles (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube) were created.
• Dissemination
o 23 publications in scientific conferences and workshops (including many top-ranked venues like ACM SIGCOMM, ACM MobiCom, ACM CoNEXT, IEEE INFOCOM or AAAI).
o 10 publications in scientific journals.
o Participation in various working groups to join efforts with other 5G PPP projects.
• Exploitation, including standardization
o Participation in standardization activities and contributions.
o Identification and monitoring of relevant open-source projects.
o Master, PhD Theses/Courses and Internships.
