Multi-layer 360° dYnamic orchestration and interopeRable design environmenT for compute-continUum Systems



About Us

The MYRTUS project aims at unlocking the new living dimension of CPS, embracing the principles of the EU CloudEdgeIOT Initiative, integrating edge, fog and cloud computing platforms. This integration requires the reinvention of programming languages and tools to orchestrate collaborative distributed and decentralised components. Additionally, components must be augmented with interface contracts covering both functional and non-functional properties. MYRTUS solutions play a crucial role in enabling sustainable computing and trustworthiness in CPS. 


Our Research

MYRTUS contributes to create new knowledge in the computing continuum domain, with methodologies and tools for node execution and processing portability over edge-fog-cloud, including dynamic and seamless orchestration. The goal is to become a reference in the computing continuum, offering solutions that overcome the problem related to vendor/platform lock-in, therefore promoting and facilitating the adoption of MYRTUS technologies among startups and SMEs, reducing their development time and cost.

MYRTUS embraces the sustainable and responsible computing paradigm, promoting obsolescence avoidance (supported by MYRTUS principle of openness, interoperability, and portability) and resource saving and energy efficiency (supported by HW specialisation and optimization techniques).

Challenges and Objectives

MYRTUS primary goal is to provide efficient computing continuum management, leveraging advanced technologies such as federated learning and swarm intelligence techniques. 

Concept and Methodologies

Within the project, we will define a computing continuum infrastructure composed of heterogeneous resources, which will be orchestrated by MIRTO, an AI-powered cognitive engine that represents the project’s core. Finally, a design and programming environment will be designed to facilitate the efficient deployment and programming.


MYRTUS techniques will be tested in smart mobility and virtual telerehabilitation scenarios, ensuring that the project delivers real-world benefits to users.


The MYRTUS consortium comprises 8 countries and 14 partners, and brings together different types of competencies from low-level architectural details definition to software management strategies.


Technical Objective 1

MYRTUS defines a reference infrastructure where a diversity of fog-level and edge-level devices converge with the cloud to form a computing continuum capable of addressing the needs of complex and dynamic systems, including CPS with a living dimension.

Technical Objective 2

MYRTUS features a 360° dynamic runtime orchestration scheme, embodied within the MIRTO AI-powered cognitive engine, to guarantee high performance and energy efficiency, preserving security and trust.

Technical Objective 3

MYRTUS provides a reference design and programming environment for continuum computing systems, featuring interoperable support for cross-layer modelling, threat analysis, design space exploration, application modelling, components synthesis, and code generation.
