The FIRE STUDY organised the FIRE Forum 2016 on 27th September 2016 afternoon, collocated with the ICT Proposers Day in Bratislava. It gathered 50 representatives from 42 different projects or organisations, including the EC.

The FIRE Forum 2016 was again a top event of the year to collect all innovative Future Internet players together to present their work and discuss R&I priorities to shape the Next Generation Internet Experimentation landscape. Top-notch experts and representatives coming from several domains, including the IoT/AIOTI, the 5G PPP, the Creative Industry and the CAPSSI communities, were gathered together to have an interactive discussion with the FIRE and the EC representatives.

The objectives of the FIRE Forum 2016 were to:

  • Inform the whole community about recent changes within the DG Connect in the NGI context and implications on the FIRE initiative, including interactive lively discussion;
  • Learn about large-scale experimentation efforts with specific focus on IoT and 5G;
  • Promote ongoing and upcoming Open Calls;
  • Identify and discuss potential synergies across different Units (E1, E3, E4); and
  • Present the updated version of the XiPi+ platform to disseminate latest information about testbeds related to the “FIRE community”.

All presentations are available online within the agenda below – indicated Presentation“.
