Welcome Note by the Project Coordinator

December 19, 2022


Dear reader,


As the coordinator of XGain project, I would like to welcome you to our e-newsletter and thank you for your interest in our research work! XGain is a new European funded project, aiming to bridge the gap between urban and rural areas through the deployment of high-speed connectivity in a sustainable, balanced and inclusive manner.


I-SENSE Group of ICCS is honored to coordinate this project that brings together 17 partners coming from 12 different countries, all ready to unite their efforts and take a decisive step towards offering a solution for digital inequalities existing between urban and rural areas. XGain will be the meeting point for all related stakeholders, from farmers to local governments, to achieve this goal and facilitate access to a comprehensive inventory of smart XG, last-mile connectivity and edge computing solutions, and of related assessment methods.


In the next 3 years, we are looking forward to bringing a meaningful change in rural areas of Europe. Featuring EU’s moto of ‘no one left behind’, we hope that we will take you with us along this journey.


Closing, on behalf of the XGain consortium, let me wish you and your families a happy and prosperous year, full of health and happiness!
