As the phase 1 of Future Internet Public-Private Partnership is drawing to a close, we are gearing towards the initiation of it second phase, and also mobilizing stakeholders all over Europe for phase 3 preparations, this is the right moment to engage and share the overall vision, objectives and outcomes of this strategic European programme. It is time now for European stakeholders – SMEs, developers, cities, regions, industry and end-users to engage in the phase 2 and phase 3 of the FI-PPP programme and benefit from it.

Through the results achieved in phase 1 projects shared in presentations, videos, conceptual and real and interactive demos and collaborative workshops, we will highlight the value proposition of engaging in such an ecosystem based on open interfaces to enable third party services and applications to emerge and develop into new markets enhancing the future competitiveness of Europe’s scientific and technology base on ICT.
