Greece, Spain, and Sweden have been chosen as pilot countries for these Living Labs, serving as the groundwork for innovative solutions.</p><p>Additionally, PREVENT aims to reach out to over 10,000 schools and 3 million students aged 9-16 through extensive upscaling activities. By implementing interventions such as age-appropriate classroom education on healthy lifestyles, promoting healthier snacks and meals in school canteens, supporting physical activities both at school and community levels, and utilising both prevailing and innovative techniques, the PREVENT project seeks to make a lasting impact.</p><p>The project's objectives in addressing obesity in children and adolescents encompass creating communities of practice, analysing obesity determinants and intervention policies, and identifying cancer types associated with obesity. Engaging stakeholders, establishing digital infrastructure, and implementing dynamic approaches for behavioral change are also key focuses. Continuous assessment through clinical evaluations, user and social-related analyses, as well as economic and sustainability assessments, is an integral part of the project.</p><h2><b>Our role&nbsp;</b></h2><p>Timelex is acting as a legal advisor to the PREVENT consortium partners, handling all legal and ethical issues related to the project, including GDPR and data protection compliance and legal and ethical challenges related to the use of Artificial Intelligence.</p></div></div></div></section><div class="paragraph paragraph--text-with-image paragraph--image-align-left paragraph--text-with-image--image-align-left width--full background--default border--default title-align--left text-align--left layout--onecol-image clearfix"><div class="inner"><div class="row"><div class="image-wrapper"><div class="field--image field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"><img loading="lazy" src="/sites/default/files/2023-05/Funded_by_EU.jpg" width="300" height="304" alt="EU" /></div></div><div class="content-wrapper"><div class="ds-content"><div class="field--text clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-text field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><h2><b>Project details&nbsp;</b></h2><p>More information about the PREVENT project can be found on the cordis website: <a href="https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101104618">https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101104618</a> or on the website of the PREVENT project itself: <a href="https://preventproject.eu/">https://preventproject.eu/</a>.&nbsp;</p><p>Funded by the European Union.

Especially in the context of the Green Deal, the stability and resilience of the European energy grids is essential to safeguard the interests of European citizens, businesses and administrations, and to protect Europe’s autonomy against internal and external threats.</p><p>The CyberSEAS project is a European Union funded collaborative project improving the cyber security of the European EPES. CyberSEAS has 3 strategic objectives:</p><ul><li>Countering the cyber risks related to highest impact attacks against EPES;</li><li>Protecting consumers against personal data breaches and attacks;</li><li>Increasing the security of the Energy Common Data Space.</li></ul><p>All three objectives are equally important, since cyber-criminals are shifting tactics to favour multi-stage attacks in which stealing sensitive data is a precondition for the real attack, and enables them to maximise damage and profits (while traditionally infrastructure cyber-attacks used to be direct attacks to the machinery and typically targeted control systems, not data). Threat actors, especially large ones such as nation states, also carry out complex attacks that leverage supply chain dependencies, and this trend continues to grow. Likewise, with the transition to scenarios where users are proactively involved, prosumer data is becoming more and more sensitive.</p><p>CyberSEAS stands for Cyber Securing Energy dAta Services, and aims to improve the overall resilience of energy supply chains, protecting them from disruptions that exploit the enhanced interactions, the extended involvement models of stakeholders and consumers as channels for complex cyber-attacks, the presence of legacy systems and the increasing connectivity of energy infrastructures, data stores and services retailers. To achieve these objectives, CyberSEAS delivers an open and extendable ecosystem of customisable security solutions. These solutions are validated through experimental campaigns consisting of 100+ attack scenarios, tested in 3 labs before moving out to one of 6 piloting infrastructures across 6 European countries.</p><h2><b>Our role</b></h2><p>Timelex is the legal and ethics partner in this three-year project, supporting the CyberSEAS consortium in the analysis of legal issues, including particularly data protection. As part of these tasks, Timelex identifies compliance challenges, and proposes solutions to mitigate potential legal risks.

The core objective of ONCOSCREEN is to enhance citizens’ awareness, participation, and acceptance of colorectal cancer screening programmes. The ONCOSCREEN Consortium consists of 38 partner organisations from 15 European countries (incl. including technical solutions providers, hospitals, Ministries of Health as policy makers, Insurance companies).</p><p>The project has been funded by the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, under grant agreement No. 101097036 and is part of the Cancer Mission cluster of projects on ‘Prevention, including Screening’.</p><p>With Colorectal Cancer (CRC) being accountable for 12.4% of all deaths due to cancer, and with only 14% of EU citizens participating in screening programmes, there is an urgent need for accurate, non-invasive, cost-effective screening tests based on novel technologies and an increased awareness on the disease and its detection. Furthermore, personalized approaches for screening are needed, to consider genetic and other socioeconomic variables and environmental stressors that lead to different onsets of the disease.</p><p>ONCOSCREEN responds to these challenges by developing a risk-based, population-level stratification methodology for CRC, to account for genetic prevalence, socio-economic status, and other factors. It complements this methodology by:</p><ul><li>developing a set of novel, practical, and low-cost screening technologies with high sensitivity and specificity,</li><li>leveraging AI to improve existing methodologies for CRC screening, allowing for the early detection of polyps and provision of a personalized risk status stratification,</li><li>providing a mobile app for self-monitoring and CRC awareness raising.</li></ul><p>Furthermore, ONCOSCREEN develops an Intelligent Analytics dashboard for policy makers facilitating effective policy making at regional and national levels.</p><p>Through a multi-level campaign, the above-mentioned solutions are tested and validated. For the clinical solutions specifically, a clinical validation study has been planned with the participation of 4100 enrolled patients/citizens. To ensure the adoption of the developed solutions by the healthcare systems, their cost-effectiveness and financial viability will be assessed.</p><h2>Our role</h2><p>Timelex provides the consortium with a wide range of support with respect to legal and ethics-related issues.

When faced with unexpected situations, these robots are often incapable of taking appropriate actions and require human intervention. The goal of CONVINCE is to advance the capabilities of robots to perform complex tasks robustly and safely within unstructured environments via autonomous and unsupervised adaptation to the environment and operational context.</p><p>More specifically, the key contribution is to develop and verify cognitive deliberation capabilities that ensure safe robot operation over extended periods of time without human intervention. These capabilities will be integrated into a model-driven software toolchain to allow developers to build application-specific deliberation systems able to:</p><ol><li>determine robot’s behaviors required to fulfill a given task, also taking into account the context in which the robot operates and the experience gained during previous executions of the same task,</li><li>deploy and configure the components that are required to execute these behaviors,</li><li>automate the analysis of behaviors to ensure that they are safe and secure, leveraging on formal models and tools for design-time and run-time verification.</li></ol><p>We will validate the results of the project CONVINCE on three different real-world use cases, each of which presents technical difficulties and utilizes robotic systems of increasing complexity, in different application domains.</p><h3>Robot Vacuum Cleaner (UC1)</h3><p>The robot's capabilities are limited, but it operates in diverse environments whose specific traits are impossible to foresee completely at the design stage. End-users require vacuum cleaners that improve with time, learn the problematic corners, areas, and objects of their home, to avoid getting stuck.</p><h3>Assembly Robot (UC2)</h3><p>Two manipulators undertake an assembly task. Parts are available in the environment in no prescribed order and should be assembled based on their shape. Occlusions or difficult lighting conditions may impair the visual system. Some parts may be missing or occluded or restrained by other parts.</p><h3>Robotic Museum Guide (UC3)</h3><p>A humanoid robot is utilized to guide visitors inside a museum, describing the artworks. The robot requires network connectivity to fully operate, its behavior should change depending on the available functionalities (i.e., if off-board computation is temporarily unavailable). The environment may change due to the presence of humans that obstruct the path or stand in front of artworks. The robot should detect such situations and decide whether to modify the tour to skip artworks that are currently unavailable.</p><h2>Our role</h2><p>Timelex leads the legal and ethical work in the project, ensuring compliance of the project with applicable data protection legislation, both at the EU level through the GDPR and at the level of residual national legislation. Additionally, the legal and ethical work will focus on the matter of AI and legal and ethical concerns following therefrom based on current guidelines on the ethical use of AI and upcoming regulation, such as the EU’s Artificial Intelligence Act. Timelex can build upon its considerate experience acting as legal and ethics advisor in Horizon 2020 projects that will be leveraged and expanded throughout this project.</p></div></div></div></section><div class="paragraph paragraph--text-with-image paragraph--image-align-left paragraph--text-with-image--image-align-left width--large background--default border--default title-align--left text-align--left layout--onecol-image clearfix"><div class="inner"><div class="row"><div class="image-wrapper"><div class="field--image field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"><img loading="lazy" src="/sites/default/files/2023-05/Funded_by_EU.jpg" width="300" height="304" alt="EU" /></div></div><div class="content-wrapper"><div class="ds-content"><div class="field--text clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-text field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><h2><b>Project details</b></h2><p>More information about the CONVINCE project can be found on the project website: <a href="https://convince-project.eu/">https://convince-project.eu/</a> and the project page on the CORDIS website: <a href="https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101070227">https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101070227</a>.</p><p>Funded by the European Union.
