The Safe Aorta project focuses on solving the problem related to Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), using big data sets and artificial intelligence. AAA is defined as permanent localized dilatation exceeding 50% of the normal diameter (>3 cm). The main complication of ΑΑΑs is rupture, which is associated with high mortality rates of 50-75%, being the 13th most common cause of death and the 3rd most common cause of sudden death in the Western world, after acute myocardial infarction and stroke. The motivation for the proposed project is the gap that exists in the assessment of the risk of rapid expansion and rupture of an ΑΑΑ. The current project with code TAEDR-0535983 is being implemented within the framework of the Action ‘Flagship actions in interdisciplinary scientific areas with special interest in linking to the productive web,’ Greece 2.0 – National Recovery and Resilience Plan

As part of the “Intelli-Wheelchair” project, a wheelchair will be designed and built, the movement of which will be controlled exclusively through mental and voice commands by a person with a severe disability, without the need for any physical feedback feedback to operate it. The movement through mental commands will take place through the recording of the electrical activity of the neurons of the brain (Electroencephalogram – EEG). The representation and control of the system is to be done through the application of a brain-computer interface (Brain-Computer Interface).

The main goal of this Business Plan for the “Smart City” is to balance the current situation, analyze relevant initiatives worldwide, and draw up a series of reporting actions that can be unfolded over a period of five (5) years, with a corresponding time frame performance horizon. The implementation of this Plan in addition to the strengthening of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, due to communicating factors, will have a very positive and significant impact on other sectors of the local economy and life with obvious multiplier effects. In recent years, the Municipality of Ioannina has been transformed into a metropolitan center with wider influences that continues a long tradition of history and culture. Strategies for a smart city are a complex process with desirable initiatives in the context of Smart governance, Smart citizens, Smart living, Smart mobility, Smart economy and Smart environment.
