In the area of the Comenius University in Bratislava, Science Park (CUSP), the Plenary Session and the Technical Meeting of the European project HORIZON 2020 MONICA - (Management of Networked IoT Wearables-Very Large Scale Demonstration of Cultural Societal Applications) took place on 26-28 September 2018.

The program began with an address by the Director of the CUSP, Ján Turňa, who welcomed participants of the meeting. Plenary sessions and accompanying workshops were attended by the entire consortium of the MONICA project with up to 50 participants. The consortium consists of 28 partners from 9 EU countries.

The MONICA project aims to use modern IoT (Internet of things) technology, a technology that is capable of processing large amounts of data in a short time with quick feedback, and for those technologies to prepare applications for cultural, musical and sporting events with a large number of the participants and the great demands on their course and, at the same time, using new technologies to develop applications for sound management and transmission, or to provide new services to organizers and participants through the use of smart technologies.

The organizer of the meeting was Atos IT Solutions and Services, Slovakia, one of the partners. The coordinator was the EU Research Center, the Fraunhofer Institute, Germany, with the MONICA project coordinated by its Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT) in Sankt Augustine (near Bonne).

This meeting was also a good opportunity to establish contacts and cooperation and to popularize the transnational project Ecoinn Danube / Eco-innovatively Danube Region from the Interreg program, where the CUSP is one of the partners.
