Programme Manager at Eurescom GmbH
Adam Kapovits has more than 25 years of professional experience in academic and industry research. He joined Eurescom, the leading organisation for managing collaborative R&D in telecommunications 15 years ago as programme manager, focusing first mainly on the networking layer. In these areas he has managed a large number of studies and projects on topics which are of concern to the Eurescom member community of European telecom network operators and the European telecom industry at large. He has participated in a number RTD projects and co-ordinated the FP7 project CHANGE that concerned software defined networking and currently co-ordinates the RERUM project focusing on „REliable, Resilient and secUre IoT for sMart city applications”, and co-leads the IoT European research Cluster (IERC) activity chain on governance, security and privacy. In parallel, recently, Adam has co-ordinated an ESA study on „Service delivery over integrated satellite terrestrial networks” and currently leads two studies, one on „Scenarios for integration of satellite components in future networks” and another concerning „Satcom integration with LTE-based core network emulator”. Thus one of Adam’s main interest is the convergence of terrestrial and satellite communication in the 5G context. Adam was also the co-editor of the 5G-PPP white paper on the energy vertical having also a strong relevance to IoT. Adam considers IoT as the emerging dominant application domain of 5G, next to content delivery.
