In the past 17th and 18th of Setember 2014, we were attending the 2nd European Conference on the Future of Internet – ECFI . The event was taken place in the Research Centre of the TUM – Technical University of Munich, in Garching. Also on the second day there was a TechnoBruch at BMW Worldwhere it was discussed how the Future Internet will revolutionise the manufacturing sector and particularly the automotive industry.
The main objective of the event was to inform the advances that have been made through FIWARE program and the launch of the FIWARE Accelerator Program. Starting this September, 16 accelerator projects will provide 80 million euros in direct funding through Open Calls for small and medium-sized enterprises that build innovative products, solutions and applications based on FIWARE technology, the pan-European open platform for the Future Internet.
The 16 Accelerators are distributed in different areas: eHealth, Smart Cities, Multimedia, Smart Manufacturing, Smart AgriFood, Smart Energy, Creative Industries, Social Interaction, Food Chain Logistics, Media & Content and Learning & Training.
