Ongoing projects

INSPEX (2017-2019) - For the European Commission

The objective of INSPEX is to make obstacle detection capabilities that are currently only feasible on autonomous vehicles available as a personal portable/wearable multi-sensor, miniaturised, low power spatial exploration system. The INSPEX System will be used for real-time 3D detection, location and warning of obstacles under all environmental conditions in indoor and outdoor environments with static and mobile obstacles. Applications include navigation for the visually/mobility impaired, safer human navigation in reduced visibility conditions and small robot.
drone obstacle avoidance.

PROTECT (2016-2019) - For the European Commission

The goal of the project is an enhanced biometric-­based person identification system that works robustly across a range of border crossing types and that has strong user-centric features. The system will be deployed in Automated Border Control (ABC) areas supporting border guards to facilitate smooth and rapid crossing by travellers based on deployment of the next generation of biometric identification detection methods.

TeSLA (2016-2018) - For the European Commission

The TeSLA project provides to educational institutions, an adaptive trust e-assessment system for assuring e-assessment processes in online and blended environments. It will support both continuous and final assessment to improve the trust level across students, teachers and institutions.
 
Researchers: Nathan DE VOS, Manon KNOCKAERT, Jean-Marc VAN GYSEGHEM.
 

Open Agro 2.0 (2017-2019) - For the Walloon Region

The Open Agro 4.O project is an initiative from the Walloon region for two years. It concerns the elaboration and development of a smart climate agriculture based on big data activities and decision-making tools by various public research institutions in the agricultural and environmental sectors. Open Agro 4.0 projects consist in the examination of the intellectual property legal framework, the possible protection and also open access and open license issues.

Researchers: Manon KNOCKAERT, Benoît MICHAUX.

GreenWork - For the Province of Namur

The GreenWork research is a three years doctoral project financed by the Close Foundation (Province de Namur). The context is the building of the future Provincial Administration House (MAP), integrating management innovations in space designing, i.e. new work organization and agents’ ecological responsibility. The research question asks how systems of participation influence social appropriation of the project by the agents. We analyze systems of participation during the project process and how they produce social appropriation defined as the construction of a shared and accepted representation of the project as well as organizational practices oriented to the change.

COCOM (2017) - For the Joint Community Commission (Brussels)

The Brussels Common communitarian committee (CoCom) is responsible for health and personal assistance policies in the Brussels region and must amend its data protection rules following the adoption of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. This EU regulation must be complied with as of 25 May 2018. The Regulation is directly applicable. However, the rules applicable in the Brussels region for the processing of personal data by the institutions falling under the competence of the CoCom must be updated to address practical issues like the appointment of data protection officers, the implementation of the right to object and of data portability or the establishment of processes to report  data breaches according to the regulation. The subject of the study is to prepare legal drafting susceptible to comprehensively update the current rules.

Pacte d'Excellence Numérique (2016-2017) - For the Wallonia-Brussels Federation

The research aims to support the "Pacte pour un enseignement d'excellence". Specifically, the project consists in designing digital tools for education. The CRIDS provides scientific support in the "Digital Education" consortium and contributes to the development, testing and validation of these tools.

Researchers: Kathleen DE GROVE, Carole DELFORGE, Alyson HERNALESTEEN.

BIG DATA (2015-2018) - For the Walloon Region

This Technological Innovation Partnership aims at building the first version of the Big Data service catalog (infrastructure and software) which will be made available through a Platform of Innovation (a portal open to Walloon companies both in the research and exploitation phases)."

Researchers: Antoine DELFORGE.

mHEALTH (2016-2023) - For the Walloon Region

This project is to prototype a platform of secured demonstration applying to the field of eHealth the future Internet technologies developed in other projects. This plateform aims at supplying a reference system to facilitate and optimize monitoring of the patients. It aims at promoting the prevention and insuring continuity of monitoring  and  medical treatment except the hospitals in post-operative follow-up contexts, home medical care and monitoring of  chronic diseases. The mobility of the patients, but also of healthcare professionals will be taken into account.
 
Researchers: Catherine FORGET, Pierre PAGAGZ.
 

FLEXPUB (2015-2020) - For the Belgian Science Policy Office BELSPO

The project is focused on the development of eGovernment services and the phenomenon of digitalization of public services. This development raises legal (intellectual property, data and privacy protection, responsibility), technical and organisational questions. On the basis of case studies by the National Geographic Institute (IGN), the research team answers these questions to develop a federal model of deployment of electronic services in the framework of the eGovernment.
 
Researchers: Cécile DE TERWANGNE, Thomas TOMBAL.
 

LITME@WORK (2015-2019) - For the Belgian Science Policy Office BELSPO

The context of LITME@WORK (Digital and media literacy in teamwork and distance work environments) is digital and media literacy (DML) in relation to office work (from clerical work to managerial tasks), focusing specifically on teamwork and distance work. Office work environments and practices are changing due to new organisational models (e.g. distance work, shared office spaces, teamwork) and new kinds of information and communication technologies (ICT) like mobile devices, multimedia content, groupware, cloud computing and big data technologies. These transformations, as visible in “new world of work” (NWOW) initiatives in public and private organisations, create new DML requirements, for instance in terms of engaging in collaborative writing, managing personal and shared information, managing time, and managing a team at a distance.

HECTOR (2014-2018) - For the Belgian Science Policy Office BELSPO

The HECTOR research project (Hybrid Electronic Curation & Transformation of Records) aims at developing a model for the transformation, organization and curation of hybrid records in Belgian federal administrations in order to facilitate the transition to a trustful, secure and effective electronic government.

Researchers: Antoine DELFORGE, Cécile DE TERWANGNE, Odile VANRECK.

B-WARE (2014-2018) - For the Walloon Region

The B-WARE project (Brussels-Wallonia Auxiliary Radiators for Exposure Reduction) aims at minimizing the exposure of human beings to electromagnetic waves through the development of auxiliary radiators for mobile relay antennas. The CRIDS deals with legal and socio-political aspects of the project like liability issues and the social acceptability of new technologies.

Researchers: Jean HERVEG.

EASYWAL – NSI (2010-2017) - For the Walloon Region

Le CRIDS est chargé par la Région Wallonne de rédiger, d’une part, la partie juridique du document de présentation des sources authentiques en Région wallonne et, d’autre part, l'accord de coopération mettant en œuvre ce document.
Parallèlement à cela, le CRIDS est chargé d'accompagner, pour les aspects juridiques en matière de protection des données à caractère personnel, les administrations wallonnes dans leurs demandes d'accès à des banques de données fédérales ainsi que dans la mise en place de sources authentiques.
