Announcement of the First FI-WARE Open Call for additional beneficiaries
The FI-WARE project, currently active in the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research and technological development, announces its First Open Call for new project partners.
FI-WARE 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. This infrastructure will bring significant and quantifiable improvements in the performance, reliability and production costs linked to Internet Applications - building a true foundation for the Future Internet.
FI-WARE is the cornerstone of the Future Internet PPP (FI-PPP) program, a joint action by European Industry and the European Commission.
The FI-WARE project will develop open specifications of FI-WARE GEs, together with a reference implementation of each GE for testing. Some of these open specifications will be submitted for standardization. FI-WARE aims to draw upon results already achieved through earlier research projects. It will further develop them and integrate them.
FI-WARE's First Open Call will allow the incorporation of new partners that can contribute or develop the following GEs for their integration as part of FI-WARE. They also need to provide support to FI-PPP use case projects validating conceptual prototypes developed on top of FI-WARE.
* Middleware for efficient and QoS/Security-aware invocation of services and exchange of messages.
* Business Models and Business Elements (BM & BE) Definition and Simulation.
