FI PPP Information Days

3-4 October 2013, Brussels, Belgium

The European Commission is organising Information Days on Call 3 of the Future Internet Public-Private Partnership (undefinedFI-PPP) on 3-4 October 2013. The overall planning of the Information Days follows the two Objectives that are part of the Call:

  • October 3: Objective 1.8 “Expansion of Use Cases”
  • October 4: Objective 1.9 “Technology Foundation Extension and Usage”

Objective 1.8 “Expansion of Use Cases” provides participants with funding opportunities (100 million euros budget for up to 20 projects) to distribute within networks of SMEs and Web entrepreneurs. Typical participants would be e.g. regional development agencies, SME associations, accelerators, crowdfunding platforms, business angels, venture capitalists and company investment funds. At least 80% of the funding should be forwarded to innovative players to develop new applications and services on top of innovative technologies.

Objective 1.9 “Technology Foundation Extension and Usage” consists of two parts, asking for two different types of proposals. The first part is related to the technology foundation of the whole FI-PPP. The second part of Objective 1.9 provides for support across all projects selected under Objective 1.8 above. Please refer to the undefinedWork Programme for details.

Participants will have the opportunity to present their proposal ideas at the Information Days.
