FIRE – Future Internet Research and Experimentation
FIRE is a crucial initiative launched and financed by the European Commission that has been growing since its inception in 2010 with the ambition of being Europe’s Open Lab for Future Internet research, development and innovation.
FIRE offers cutting edge test facilities that could not be accessible otherwise by many European players. FIRE, by embracing several related Horizon 2020 initiatives and vertical segments, including 5G, Smart Cities, Manufacturing, eHealth, etc., offers the unique possibility to experiment with networks, infrastructures and tools in a multidisciplinary test environment. This is key to investigating and experimentally validating highly innovative and revolutionary ideas for next generation networking and service paradigms at a lower cost, in a more rapid way.
