Are you an innovative player in the European Future Internet arena? Do you want to discover how the FIRE initiative can help boost your R&D efforts, discover novel networking approaches, reduce time to market and create broader innovation/commercial impact for your products and services?
Don’t miss the FIRE Forum 2015 as a great opportunity to learn about existing testing infrastructures (facilities) for experimentally driven technology innovation in areas such as advanced networking, IoT and cloud, and their use within a wide range of application areas including smart city, education, emergency management and land / air / underwater communication.
The diversity of FIRE testbeds and applications and the evolving federation of facilities create an exciting and unique opportunity to explore converged infrastructures and research challenges associated with resource management, interoperability, and Experimentation-as-a-Service concepts and, more generally, the emerging technology trends of the Future Internet.
At the FIRE Forum 2015 you will meet representatives of the FIRE projects, the European Commission and other relevant stakeholders and initiatives to discuss the further development of experimental facilities, research and innovation, and how a federated European experimental infrastructure will drive innovation.
New funding opportunities are opening up within the context of the Information and Communication Technologies Call, H2020-ICT-2016-2017, and via the Open Calls that several ongoing FIRE projects will issue between December 2015 and January 2016. Discover these opportunities by coming to Brussels and actively participating to the FIRE Forum 2015!
