Cooperation with Other Research Projects

COSSIM is actively cooperating with other research projects and innitiaves. The following list provides information on those projects:

  • INTO-CPS (Integrated Tool Chain for Model-Based Design of Cyber-Physical Systems)

    The aim of INTO-CPS project is to create an integrated “tool chain” for comprehensive Model-Based Design (MBD) of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs). The tool chain will support the multidisciplinary, collaborative modelling of CPSs from requirements, through design, down to realisation in hardware and software. This will enable traceability at all stages of the development.

  • VESSEDIA (Verification Engineering of Safety and Security Critical Industrial Applications)

    VESSEDIA aims at enhancing safety and security of information and communication technology (ICT) and especially the Internet of Things (IoT). More precisely the aim of this project consists in making formal methods more accessible for application domains that want to improve the security and reliability of their software applications by means of Formal Methods.

    Project Website:

  • PLATFORMS4CPS – Shared Vision, Strategy, Architectures and Building Blocks for Future Cyber-Physical Systems and Platforms

    Platforms4CPS is a two years ‘Coordination and Support’ action in the area of Smart Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), which is co-funded from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
