5th FUTURE SEAMLESS COMMUNICATION FORUM
Thu., Nov. 13, 2014 to Fri., Nov. 14, 2014 , Berlin, Germany

Day 1, 13 November 2014 - FI-PPP Workshop

“Bridging the gap between Future Internet Research and Innovation”

An international workshop organized by XiFi - the capacity building project of the FI-PPP programme

Enabling Future Internet Research and Innovation already has given rise to a broad spectrum of initiatives worldwide. Initiatives like GENI (US) and FIRE (Europe) enable Future Internet research and experimentation by providing experimental ICT facilities predominantly targeting research communities. IGNITE (US) and the FI-PPP (Europe) programs provide platforms and environments for application development with stronger focus on innovation and business. In face of the current momentum to bring both worlds closer together in order to bridge the gap between Future Internet research and Future Internet innovation and business, the FI-PPP workshop brings together key players from FIRE, the FI-PPP, GENI, IGNITE, NSFCloud and the EIT ICT Labs.

The full day workshop intends to promote the European Future Internet – Public Private Partnership Programme (FI-PPP), to foster collaborations with related regional and international initiatives and to jointly discuss strategies for sustainability and commercial exploitation.

Main Goals:
  • to raise awareness of application developers and SMEs about available FI-PPP technologies, technology usage, FI infrastructures in Europe and funding/business opportunities of FI-PPP’s Phase 3
  • to attract operators and infrastructure providers to adopt and deploy FI-PPP core platform technologies
  • to jointly discuss with European FI-PPP infrastructure providers, FIRE testbed owners, the EIT ICT Labs, FI-PPP business accelerators and business strategy developers and delegates from related US initiatives:
    - synergies, options and strategies for sustaining Future Internet technologies and platforms
    - strategies for bridging the gap from research and development to innovation and business
