/ The projects
Aiming to create an innovative Europe, the Future Internet Public-Private Partnership has gathered the efforts of many different projects, which have worked to build and expand the core platform, to create specific tools and to lead an SME-driven development, thus resulting in the different facets of FIWARE. During the Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 of this partnership, more than 20 projects have participated and are still committed to place Europe on top of the Future Internet worldwide.
The core component of the FI-PPP, validating the technologies in the context of smart applications and their ability to support “user driven” innovation schemes. A technological platform to gather innovators, investors, developers, engineers and entrepreneurs.
The FI-PPP programme is facilitated and supported by CONCORD, a 5-year Coordination Action. CONCORD provides structures and processes for collaboration between all FI-PPP projects. In addition, the project ensures a coherent programme-wide vision-setting process in regard to business, policy and technological aspects of the FI-PPP. The programme-level activities are steered through the FI-PPP Governance Structure, which is facilitated by CONCORD.
