Hence, SECC of Egypt, TECNALIA of Spain, VTT of Finland, and UNIBO of Italy formed capable, integrated consortium and proposed the RECOCAPE project in response to the FP7-INCO-2011-6 Call. TECNALIA is the largest research and technology organization in Spain and the fifth in Europe, VTT is the largest research and technology organization in Northern Europe, and University of Bologna (UNIBO) is the reputable, oldest university in the western world. The project duration is 2 years starting from November 1st, 2011.

The objectives are:

  1. 1- Developing SECC's strategic technology plan
  2. 2- Developing and delivering training modules to build competency in Service-Oriented Architecture, Enterprise Service Bus, Semantic Web, Model-Driven Development, and Embedded Ubiquitous Computing
  3. 3- Setting up joint relevant experiments in the above relevant technologies
  4. 4- Exchanging SECC staff with TECNALIA to work on FP7 proposal preparation and related running projects
  5. 5- Disseminating knowledge through organizing key events, as the EuroMed SPI, to involve local stakeholders and generate regional impact
