NEW: FI-WARE workshop at Future Internet Assembly (FIA) 8-10 May in Dublin
The Irish Presidency will host the next FIA conference as a three-days event, starting on Wednesday, 8 May 2013 and ending on Friday, 10 May 2013.
The FI-WARE project (Core Platform of the FI PPP) is organizing a workshop in the context of the next edition of the Future Internet Assembly on 7 May in Dublin. The workshop will last around 3 hours (from 14:30 to 17:30) and attendees will get an overview of the technical achievements of FI-WARE, highlighting major competitive advantages with respect to existing solutions in the market and the way all these resources and assets (Generic Enablers, Testbed, Open Innovation Lab…) can be used by the development community to create Future Internet-enabled applications and services.
The workshop will count on speakers coming from the FI-WARE environment, but also projects and stakeholders (from outside the project) that are already using FI-WARE Generic Enablers or plan to use them. Practical experiences as well as our roadmaps to bring developers and entrepreneurs to the FI-WARE Open Innovation Lab will be shared with the audience.
FIA Dublin will focus on how European Future Internet research and innovation will support EU's competitiveness and enable a new wave of technologies at the eve of Horizon 2020. FIA Dublin will be framed around two major lines:
European competitiveness: towards a strong, diversified and competitive EU Future Internet industrial base, with high innovation performance in global markets
European research & innovation: towards a more effective exploitation of EU Future Internet research results from industry, academia and research institutes.

NESSI is the European Technology Platform (ETP) dedicated to Software and Services. NESSI provides input to the EU Institutions on research actions and technology matters of particular importance to the software domain, and the overall aim is to enable the software and services sector help vitalize the great potential of the European economy and society. NESSI gathers partners and members from all over Europe, both from industry and academia, and engages in close dialogue with the European Commission and other stakeholders on several topics of specific relevance to NESSI - such as Horizon2020, Cloud Computing and Big Data.
NESSI takes an active role in addressing future challenges of Europe, by offering research oriented software and services based solutions, while at the same time working for ensuring that enough resources are invested in leading-edge industrial and academic research for innovative technologies in the software and service domain. Europe has to turn its outstanding R&D potential, its infrastructure and its technological environment into successful product development and marketable products in order to maintain its competitive edge.
Europe has to master the innovation cycle for key technologies that will allow people, businesses and governments to succeed and to seize the opportunities of the future. Enterprises in Europe are constantly facing challenges such as structural changes and will have to rely on innovative and advanced software in order to be able to adapt to these changes. It is part of NESSI's vision to play an important part in this process.
