Project full name: FI-WARE: Future Internet Core Platform

The FI-WARE project, currently active in the Seventh Framework Programme of

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
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
results already achieved through earlier research projects. It will further
develop them and integrate them.

FI-WAREs First Open Call will allow the incorporation of new partners that
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.

exchange of messages.
P Business Models and Business Elements (BM & BE) Definition and Simulation.

IPRs will be managed according to the corresponding Grant Agreement,
Agreement and Collaboration Agreement, which the new partners shall adhere

an EU Member State, or FP7 Associated State.
