After 3 years of hard work, time has come to close the RESCUEIT-FR project.
Started in April 2010, RESCUEIT has involved 11 academic and industrial partners together
with major supply chain actors such as REWE, IBM, K+N, Eisbaer, Baam.
The final review of the project took place on the 20th of March 2013, in your SAP Labs in Sophia Antipolis.
It was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate both scientific and technical results of the project in front of our German and French funding agencies. And we’ve received an excellent feedback from German and French Ministry for Education and Research.
Coordinated by SAP AG, RESCUEIT is the very first German-French collaborative research project in the context of
the BMBF / ANR call “Securing the Supply Chains / “Concepts Systems and Tools for
Global Security”. Funded by the German and French research agencies (BMBF and ANR), RESCUEIT aims at joint secure supply chain management (SCM) platform, with respect to global supply chain modelling and risk identification; safe and secure operation; as
well as robustness in case of any attacks.
The proposed German part of the RESCUE IT project emphasises the “virtual” world, which means it focuses on the supply chain software, a supply chain risk manage-
ment database, its use of services, possible logical attacks, and the integration of corresponding mitigating security functionality. The French part of the project puts emphasis on the “real” world, which means it focuses on the connection of the supply chain management software and services down to the actual execution chain, be it in
terms of geolocation, sensors or RFIDs, equally looking at possible attacks, and the integration of corresponding mitigating security functionality.
As major outcomes of the project we can mention the following
1. RESCUEIT platform deployed in the immersive room of IBM Forum La Gaude. This work has been done under the scope of the IBM SAP Alliance. It was a great opportunity for us to present our work to potential SAP customers such as Shell, or BP.
2. 2 best awards papers
3. ~50 scientific publications to international scientific conferences
4. 2nd place for the innovation price organised by the German-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry
