Universidad Politécnica de Madrid


UPM is one of the oldest and largest of the Spanish Technical Universities. UPM currently has more than 3000 faculty members, around 38.000 undergraduate students, and around 6.000 postgraduate students. UPM has a strong commitment to R&D and Innovation. The UPM has more than 200 Research Units and several Research Institutes and Technological Centres. The contribution of the university to knowledge creation through its scientific publications is also significant. The Centre for Biomedical Technology (CTB) was born under Technical University of Madrid (UPM) coverage to bring together outstanding groups of researchers and technologists, from a variety of biomedical and technological disciplines, in a stable envi- ronment of multidisciplinary research.

The research group coordinated by Prof. Ernestina Menasalvas covers the most relevant aspects of the development of a data mining projects with special emphasis on data preparation and integration and user interaction. With more than 15 years of experience in the field of data analysis, the researchers have dedi- cated their research to public and private funding projects in different domains from the biomedical field to the web social analysis to name but a few. They have participate in the integration of data mining and data warehouse (Project financed by UPM), design of a webhouse to mine web search results (R&D project with Holos and UPM) definition of a methodology to develop data mining projects (project of Ministry of Sci- ence) and leaded a Project for semi-autonomous mining on ubiquitous devices. She also leaded a WP in a FP7 project called Resilience 2050 where their task is the mining of aviation related data. Also they have participated in the RETHINK BIG project. They have participated in the KD-net (NoE FP5) and the KD- ubiq CA (FP6) where E. Menasalvas co-chaired a working group. Prof. Menasalvas has also supervised two PhD theses within the topic of Big Data Analytics from streams, being one of them mainly applied to Cybersecurity. The group is currently working on two funded H2020 projects: Big Data Value ecosystem (a CSA) and IASIS (a RIA) about the application of Big Data Analytics in the biomedical domain. The group is also currently working on other projects regarding Big Data Analytics in the context of biomedical domain being these projects funded by EIT Health. The group is also working on other projects with national (Spanish) funding regarding tracking, monitoring and analysis of Alzheimer patients leaded by Prof. Alejandro Rodríguez.


Role in this project

RTD Partner, Leader of “CPP real-time and predictive analytics toolbox & visualisation”. UPM will be in charge of the design and development of the analytics toolbox to be used by the potential industrial partners. UPM will provide a strong team with a deep expertise in the field of analytics to provide new models able to process data streams from different heterogeneous sources. UPM will also be in charge of the development of ad-hoc visualization tools to have a better understanding of the data.
