FP7 projects

FI-CORE: Future Internet Core

FI-CORE is the project leading the development of FIWARE Platform and FIWARE Community. The FIWARE Community is an independent open community whose members are committed to materialise the FIWARE mission, that is: “to build an open sustainable ecosystem around public, royalty-free and implementation-driven software platform standards that will ease the development of new Smart Applications in multiple sectors”.The FIWARE Community is not only formed by contributors to the technology (the FIWARE platform) but also those who contribute in building the FIWARE ecosystem and making it sustainable over time. As such, individuals and organizations committing relevant resources in FIWARE Lab activities or activities of the FIWARE Accelerator, FIWARE Mundus or FIWARE iHubs programmes are also considered members of the FIWARE community.


FI-LINKS: Link and Evangelize the FI-PPP from Europe to the World

FI-Links will support the process of evolving FI-PPP to a worldwide champion of Internet innovation by taking into account the specific business requirements of both large European industries and SMEs, supporting the adoption of the FI-PPP in non-covered EU regions and beyond, and validating the long-term vision of FI-PPP.To achieve these goals, FI-Links will establish a number of worldwide and regional links. These links will have a two-fold purpose. On the one side FI-Links will define a long-term vision for FI-PPP technologies and business models taking into account equivalent research and innovation schemes in the US, Japan, Canada and the BRICs, as well as other countries when deemed relevant. On the other side, FI-Links will promote the adoption of FI-PPP results in EU regions and development countries where the take-up of Internet innovation can occur quickly and impact local markets.


UCN: User-Centric Networking

This project introduces the concept of User Centric Networking (UCN), which is a new paradigm leveraging user information at large to deliver novel content recommendation systems and content delivery frameworks. The goal of this project is to design a UCN system architecture for user-centric connected media services. We will build UCN upon three complementary research pillars: (i) understanding user context, (ii) profiling and predicting user interests, and (iii) personalizing content delivery.

AMPLIFIRE: Amplifying Future Internet Research and Experimentation for a Sustainable Future

The objective of the AmpliFIRE Support Action is to prepare FIRE for year 2020, in strengthening the exploitation and impact creation capacities of Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) facilities. It brings the concept of open innovation into the world of FIRE, involving beneficiaries across the range from infrastructure technologies to new modes of interaction, collaboration and empowerment.

CI-FIRE: Coordination and Integration of Future Internet Research Experimentation Activities in Europe

CI-FIRE is supporting the sustainable use of FIRE facilities in several different ways. We are analysing the sustainability potential of these test facilities. We are developing an experimentation-driven innovation business framework template. We are implementing an exemplary collaboration with EIT ICT Labs (European Institute of Innovation and Technology).

ECIAO: EU-China Future Internet Experimental Research (FIRE)

The EU-China-FIRE Project is a 2 years (Aug. 2013 – Aug. 2015) EU-funded project, facilitating coordination and support to EU-China cooperation on Future Internet Experimental Research (FIRE) and IPv6. China is a very large country pursuing its ICT infrastructure development which could lead to pioneer the implementation of Future Internet advanced technologies as well as being a force to promote large scale IPv6 deployment more critically than EU due to lack of IPv4 resources. Since Europe is investing substantially in Future Internet Research and Experiment (FIRE) and could benefit from exchange and experience from large scale deployment requirements in China, the EU-China FIRE project will explore mutual benefit cooperation activities. In addition to an interactive web portal, two large conferences and workshops will be organised and many public reports will help to increase awareness of benefits of cooperation between EU and China in the area of Future Internet research and experiments.


XIFI: Experimental infrastructures for the Future Internet

XIFI is a project of the European Public-Private-Partnership on Future Internet (FI-PPP) programme. In this context XIFI is the project responsible for the capacity building part of the programme. XIFI will pave the way for the establishment of a common European market for large-scale trials for Future Internet and Smart Cities through the creation of a sustainable pan-European federation of Future Internet test infrastructures.

FUSION: Connecting SMEs to the Future Internet

The FUSION project aims to bring SMEs to FIRE networking facilities so that SMEs can test out and experiment with innovative applications, services and systems on state-of-the-art networking facilities. A FUSION portal will be ready in May 2013 to broker SME requirements and facilities.

LEONE: From global measurements to local management

The Leone project seeks to build a network management framework that integrates an unprecedented number and diversity of sources of information about the network and its performance, including measurements focussed on the quality of experience perceived by the end users in a world of highly distributed and increasingly meshed applications.

INFINITY: Infrastructures for the future Internet communities

The main challenge for the INFINITY project is to establish an approach that can quickly engage with infrastructure owners and application developers Europe-wide, building as far as possible on existing data, information, projects and programmes, to create a new, useful and valuable repository of infrastructure capability and capacity that relates need to opportunity and facilitates the creation of an international community that can collaborate to deliver the Future Internet.

SCAMPI: Service platform for social aware mobile and pervasive computing

The SCAMPI project – develops the technical solutions for a service platform in mobile and pervasive opportunistic networks. SCAMPI extends the concept of opportunistic networking to the concept of opportunistic resource usage, thus allowing users not only to simply communicate, but also to use complex services in spite of long disconnections and severe partitions of the network.

FIRESTATION: Future Internet Research and Experimentation

The FIRESTATION project – provides the globally known FIRE (Future Internet Research and Experimentation) Initiative with an active hub that matches, guides and co-ordinates demand for – and offering of – experimentation facilities in the context of future networks and services. The purpose of FIRE STATION is to join forces to allow for the most efficient bilateral and multilateral collaboration, reduce duplication of work, share experiences and best practices and work for the future of experimental research.

FIGARO: Future Internet Gateway-based Architecture of Residential Networks

The FIGARO project – coordination across different IT, telecom, and media sectors as well as services and user-centric content from other sectors, such as utility (energy, water, etc.), e-health care and security in order to interconnect them and ultimately to enable collaboration among them. Redesign of Internet network architecture to support the users’ need to create, store, find, access and deliver digital content regardless of its location and to support the increasing demands and new requirements of the above mentioned sectors.

NOVI: Networking innovation over virtualized infrastructures

The NOVI project research concentrates on efficient approaches to compose virtualized e-Infrastructures towards a holistic Future Internet (FI) cloud service.

GEYSERS: Generalised architecture for dynamic infrastructure services

The GEYSERS project – specify and develop mechanisms that allow infrastructure providers to partition their resources (optical network and/or IT), compose specific logical infrastructures and offer them as a service to network operators. Geysers will specify and develop a Network Control Plane for the optical infrastructure, by extending standard solutions (ASON/GMPLS and PCE), able to couple optical network connectivity and IT services automatically and efficiently, and provide them in one step, dynamically and on-demand, including infrastructure re-planning mechanisms.
