After three years of intensive research, the EU-Japan FP7 collaborative research project “GreenICN – Architecture and Applications of Green Information Centric Networking” successfully passed the final review in Tokyo, Japan on the 25th of May, 2016 with a grade of “Excellent”.
A great achievement considering the fact that GreenICN was one of the first set of EU-Japan collaborative projects and the team utilized cultural differences to their advantage in order to achieve such a great result.
Below are some photos of our memorable association:
The GreenICN team plans to have their all partners meeting in Tokyo on the 28th and 29th of October, 2015. We are also arranging an open workshop on the 30th of October, 2015 to disseminate the results to a wider audience.
The next EU wide GreenICN meeting will be held in Goettingen, Germany on the 17th and 18th of September, 2015. Some of the Japanese partners are planning to attend it too and the main focus of the meeting will be to integrate the different work into one homogeneous approach.
The GreenICN consortium met in London from the 18th to the 21st of May 2015. The meeting consisted of the official GreenICN review and all partners project meetings. The review meeting held on the 19th of May was a success. During the project meeting, the main focus was integration of all the solutions.

The GreenICN consortium met in Osaka from the 26th to the 28th of November 2014 and made advances technical issues related to the design, architecture, naming and solutions for scenarios such as disaster and non-disaster. The meeting was held in the University of Osaka and was arranged by Prof. Toru Hasegawa and Atsushi Tagami and the local organization team at the Osaka University.
The EU partners had a technical meeting at the Frascati campus of Tor-verata university from the 2nd-4th September. The meeting was hosted by Nicola Blefari Melazzi and Andrea Detti. Prof. Toru Hasegawa, Kohei Sugiyama and Kenken from the Japanese side also attended the meeting to ensure closer collaborations. In total, there were 13 partners at the meeting.

Dr. Jan Seedorf (Senior Researcher at NEC Heidelberg) visited the researchers at the university of Goettingen on the 13th of March to discuss research topics within the GreenICN project. He also presented his work on “Binding Self-Certifying Names to Real-World Identities for Decentralised Assessment of Third-Party Messages” which was accepted at the Infocom NOM workshop, 2014.
Researchers from the university of Goettingen and KDDI R&D Labs met from the 5th of February till the 7th of February in order to advance the GreenICN projects work on disrupted networks and delay tolerant networks.
Atsushi Tagami and Kohei Sugiyama also presented their work to the staff and students of the Computer science institute at the University of Goettingen.
The EU partners held a working meeting in Rome from the 14th of January till the 16th of January, 2014. The meeting was held at the “Tor Vergata University” and was organized by Prof. Nicola Blefari Melazzi and Prof. Andrea Detti.
