The major goal of the FI-WARE project is to build the Core Platform of the Future Internet.
This Core Platform will deliver a novel service infrastructure, building upon elements (called Generic Enablers - GEs) which offer reusable and commonly shared functions making it easier to develop Future Internet Applications in multiple sectors. FI-WARE aims to provide a framework for development of Future Internet applications, making use of advanced solutions in the following technology areas:
· Cloud Hosting
· Data/Context Management
· Internet of Things (IoT) Services Enablement
· Applications/Services Ecosystem and Delivery Framework
· Interface to Networks and Devices (I2ND)
The open innovation lab will be available for SMEs that will have the opportunity of experimenting with these Generic Enablers. This is a unique opportunity for SMEs and start-ups, due to the fact that they could test cutting edge technology, without any need for investment.
FI-WARE Open Innovation Lab will comprise all what is needed to stimulate awareness among target application providers and users so that they feel attracted to participate and build a community. It will also bring tools helping members of the community to share their experiences, needs, etc. Activities to foster the Open Innovation Lab such as Dissemination, Individual SMEs and developers / Competitions / Hackthons / will be carried out.
