FI-LINKS: Link and Evangelize the FI-PPP from Europe to the world for the benefit of FI research and innovation and to the European industry business

Research Areas


While several studies recognized Europe as a leader in different research fields and as valid competitor to other world areas in many research fields, the status of affairs as regards commercialization of research results is lacking beyond to benefit European industry and European citizens. In the last three years, for the first time in EU Framework Programmes, Enterprises and Research institutions shared a great investment to move from research to commercial solutions under the umbrella of FI-PPP.\n\nFI-LINKS will support such action focusing on the process of evolving EU Future Internet research to a world-wide champion of Internet innovation. The process will take into account the specific business requirements of both large European industries and SMEs, share the results of the FI-PPP in the EU regional and extra-European context to encourage the adoption of FI-PPP results, and validate the long-term vision of FI-PPP.\n\nTo achieve these goals, FI-LINKS will establish a number of worldwide and local links around the FI-PPP to support the research and innovation around the Future Internet. The links will have a two-folds purpose. On the one side FI-LINKS will benchmark the quality of FI-PPP technologies and business models against the equivalent research and innovation schemes in the US, Japan, Canada and the BRICs. On the other side, it will identify new EU and international stakeholder groups, currently not part of the FI-PPP programme, and support the transfer of knowledge and best practices from the FI-PPP towards the larger FI community, through different actions, including the organization of European-level conferences and workshops.\nThe evangelization of FI-PPP to SMEs and web-entrepreneurs in Europe requires the endorsement and collaboration of different actors, going from the regional ecosystems, to the European and the international ones. These ecosystems will facilitate the knowledge transfer, and best practices from the FI-PPP to the extended FIcommunity
