The Smart International Hellenic University (Smart IHU) project is a research project in the field of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) for sustainable growth, energy efficiency and better quality of life. This is an area of research and development included in the Strategic Research Agenda of the European Union (EU). The aim is to transform the IHU to a ‘Smart’ University with automated processes, enabling Smart Building-Smart-Grid technology, i.e., remote monitoring and management, energy and data analytics, energy efficiency, and providing support for educational activities, an initiative which will find reflection in the e-learning provisions offered by IHU. The outcomes of the Smart IHU project are expected to support MSc theses and scientific publications in the domain of wireless sensor/actuator networks, decision support systems, web services, energy efficiency, smart grid algorithms and renewable energy sources.
The Smart IHU project is based on the cooperation of the ICT and Energy departments of the School of Science and Technology of the International Hellenic University, helping to forge a strong interdisciplinary research team which will undertake modern and challenging activities.
The project incorporates the following research directions:
The Smart IHU project is funded by Operational Program Education and Lifelong Learning, OPS200056 (International Hellenic University, Thessaloniki, Greece).
