The EU-India FI-MEDIA project has held its second successful Cluster to Cluster (C2C) partnership event, in relation to bringing the EU's FIWARE program and examining its potential for Smart environments (e.g., Smart cities, Smart villages, Smart campus, ... ) in India.
is an EU led initiative that was started as part of a Future Internet Public Private Partnership (FI-PPP), which is comprised of an Advanced OpenStack-based Cloud + rich library of Generic Enablers (GE) that make the development process much easier by hiding complexities (e.g. protocols) from the developers. A number of the major differential features of FIWARE are available including those related to Cloud, Data, IoT, Smart city / energy related apps, MiWi, Security, privacy and others.
Although born in the EU, through the FIWARE Mundus
global component, FIWARE is being extended towards other regions around the world who share the ambition, including India and there is a welcomed opportunity to form a FIWARE C2C partnership with the important topics in India, such as smart campus, smart village, M2M, IoT, etc.
A co-organised FI-MEDIA C2C event on bringing FIWARE to India was held co-located with a larger scale event being held in IIT Delhi entitled International Conference on Smart Cities (ICSC 2016
) on 22nd January, 2016.
