H2020 SME Instrument grant to Smowltech’s project

Smowltech has been selected for phase 2 funding by the Horizon 2020 SME Instrument. Smowltech will receive funding for its project, “A continuous identity authentication & monitoring system for online services using automatic face, voice and typing recognition”, through the EU’s research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020 SME Instrument. The grant will be held to accelerate the development of new features and growth of Smowltech’s cyber-security service covering the need for a continuous, automatic and scalable authentication of online user’s identity and monitoring, and to test the solution in large scale pilots testing the scalability of it and achieve new projects in foreign countries. The technology, based on continuous automatic facial recognition can be applied to numerous sectors. Within this project, it is implemented into the e-learning growing market, where a substantial need has been detected for online proctoring and remote invigilation services.

 

With nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020), H2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme, aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness. Research is without a doubt an investment for the future of EU citizens —the goal of this programme is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.

 

Smowltech reinforces its international expansion

 

As a part of its expansion and internationalization plan (especially regarding the EU and LATAM), Smowltech participates in several eLearning related events worldwide. In December 2018, we exhibited at Online Educa Berlin 2018 and eMOOCs 2019 and participated in other international events as EnlightEd, EdTechXEurope and AWS EdStart Summit London 2019, as new member of the EdSart Program of AWS. Additionally, Smowltech has done several Road Shows in LATAM, focused in countries like Colombia and Chile.
