Last week we held an internal conference to present the projects of the BISITE Research Group, an activity that we organise every year with the aim of presenting the projects that we are developing to our colleagues. In this way, we can all come up with ideas for new solutions or find synergies between the different teams and developments that we are currently working on.

Our research group has already got more than 100 employees involved in different projects related to disruptive technologies. Although it is true that BISITE is characterised by having a large number of researchers specialised in fields directly related to computer science or engineering such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, the Internet of Things, Cybersecurity or the development of applications, we make up a multidisciplinary team that also has professionals from areas such as economics, administration, bioinformatics, or even audiovisual design and communication. Together we shape each of the projects in which we participate. 

Projects, innovation and research at BISITE

BISITE Group has a hundred national and international projects, among them: 


The MSc on Smart Maritime & Marine Systems SMARTSEA project has developed an advanced and interactive master's degree related to maritime IoT applications which provides people with the necessary skills and knowledge to work in the growing "smart maritime and surveying" industry. Our colleague Marta Plaza has presented the evolution of the project and showed us how well it has been received.

Marta Plaza is also part of the team coordinating the Tectonic project. An initiative that promotes intersectoral collaboration between academic and non-academic professionals (technical experts, archaeologists, conservators, geologists, engineers, computer scientists) working on different topics related to underwater cultural heritage.


For her part, Andrea Gil presented DISRUPTIVE, a project that was recently successfully completed, as all the proposed objectives were achieved. Among them, the cross-border cooperation Spain - Portugal for the improvement of research and innovation (R&I) infrastructures and the capacity to develop excellence in R&I, and the promotion of centres of competence, especially those of European interest.

Mahmoud Abbasi is a researcher and participant in the IoTalentum project. It is based on a Marie Skłodowska-Curie EU Horizon 2020 European Training Network on the Internet of Things. IoTalentum provides interdisciplinary and comprehensive training and research in IoT: infrastructures, cybersecurity and applications to 15 Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs), including Mahmoud, who joined our group this year.

LIFE Silver Way

The LIFE Vía de la Plata project aims to create solutions against climate change and that promote energy efficiency, in order to turn Salamanca into a sustainable, ecological and safe city. The main objectives focus on climate change adaptation strategies, the creation of green infrastructures, ecosystem services, the application of Big Data, artificial intelligence and IoT, as well as citizen participation. Our group participates in this initiative providing experience and knowledge in the application of technologies such as IoT, AI and Big Data, our colleague Raúl López is part of the team collaborating in this initiative and has presented part of its evolution.

These are just some of the many projects we work on every day and with which we hope to continue to grow as a team. Let's see what 2023 has in store for us!
