An EU-India FI-MEDIA project organised Cluster to Cluster (C2C) partnership workshop on the Bringing of the EU's FIWARE
program for Smart environments (e.g. smart campus, smart villages, smart cities) is being held as part of the International Conference on Smart Cities (ICSC 2016
) being held at IIT Delhi on 22nd – 23rd of January, 2016.
is an EU led initiative that was started as part of a Future Internet Public Private Partnership (FI-PPP), which is comprised of an Advanced OpenStack-based Cloud + rich library of Generic Enablers (GE) that make the development process much easier by hiding complexities (e.g. protocols) from the developers.
A number of the major differential features of FIWARE
are available including those related to Cloud, Data, IoT, Smart city / energy related apps, MiWi, Security, privacy and others through browsing the FIWARE catalogue of Generic Enablers in their FIWARE LAB
(Open Innovation Lab), which is the operational component of FIWARE.
Although born in the EU, through their FIWARE Mundus
global component, FIWARE
is being extended towards other regions around the world who share the ambition, and through this clustering event in India, there is a welcomed opportunity to form a FIWARE
C2C partnership with the important research & innovation topics in India, such as Smart Cities, Smart Village Ecosystems, Smart Campus, M2M, IoT, etc.
