FIRE – The 1st FIRE Forum

Shaping Future Internet Research and Experimentation for Horizon 2020 – The 1st FIRE Forum

The first FIRE Forum, was organised with an open workshop and networking event, at iMinds in Ghent,Thursday, 24 October

FI-STAR is very happy to promote and collaborate with FIRE, as it brings the concept of open innovation involving beneficiaries across the range from infrastructure technologies to new modes of interaction, collaboration and empowerment into 2020.

The evolution of the Future Internet research, experimentation and innovation FIRE landscape creates new opportunities for collaboration among players and stakeholders from research, industry and SMEs, Smart Cities and regions, and innovation intermediaries.

Synergies should be explored between initiatives and programs such as FIRE, EIT ICT Labs, FI-PPP, the new 5G PPP initiative, Smart Cities and Living Labs as well as national research networking initiatives (Géant) and Future Internet initiatives worldwide.
