Research programme: Future internet technologies: concepts, architectures, services and socio-economic issues
Training topic: Trust and identity management

The research program “Future Internet Technologies: Concepts, Architectures, Services, and Socio-Economic Aspects” is designed for young researchers who wish to deepen their knowledge of advanced Internet technologies and understand their impact on modern society.

Within the program, candidates will gain a comprehensive insight into the development and use of future Internet technologies. They will focus on researching and developing advanced concepts that will enable the construction of intelligent networks, the Internet of Things, cloud services, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and other innovative solutions. Emphasis will also be placed on understanding and designing future Internet architectures that will enable greater security, reliability, and scalability.

In addition to the technical aspects, the program will also focus on the socio-economic aspect of Internet technologies. Researchers will examine the impact and challenges brought about by digital transformation in areas such as data management, privacy, cyber security, user experiences, inclusivity, ethics, and regulation. Special attention will be given to trust and identity management, as it is crucial for ensuring security, privacy, and authentication in the digital world.

Participants in the program will have the opportunity to collaborate on various research projects at both national and international levels. This will provide them with practical experience in implementing and testing innovative solutions in real-world environments. Additionally, they will have access to advanced research infrastructure, enabling them to conduct fundamental and applied research and develop prototypes.

The training in trust and identity management will emphasize the importance of security, privacy, and trust in the digital environment. Researchers will explore advanced techniques and methods for effective identity management, authentication, and access control in digital systems. They will delve into the field of cyber security, study challenges related to identity abuse, and develop innovative solutions to ensure security and trust.

Furthermore, they will learn to analyze and understand the socio-economic aspects of Internet technologies. They will examine the impact of digital transformation on businesses, public administration, society, and the economy, and identify opportunities and challenges it brings. With an understanding of these aspects, they will be able to shape guidelines and policies and contribute to the development of a sustainable and inclusive digital environment.
