Networked European Software and Services Initiative (NESSI)

> NESSI Software Engineering White Paper

Through the Software Engineering White Paper, NESSI seeks to raise awareness for the continued and even increased need for EU software engineering research and innovation programmes, in order for Europe to remain competitive and innovative. To this end, this white paper reflects NESSI’s input to the forthcoming Horizon 2020 work programme (ICT/LEIT WP2016-2017). Moreover, it identifies relevant software engineering research challenges in three major technology areas:

  • Software Engineering in and for the Cloud.
  • Software Engineering for Cyber-Physical Systems.
  • Software Engineering for and with Big Data. 

This white paper also provides recommendations on how the specifics software should be addressed during product and service innovation. In addition, the paper provides recommendations on skill and competency building needed for a well-trained industry workforce. Finally, it delivers recommendations for maximizing the impact of software engineering research and innovation projects based on lessons learned from past FP7 projects.

The NESSI Software Engineering White Paper is available under "
publications - position papers".
