European Future Internet Initiative - 3rd Usage Area Workshop

28-29 June 2011, Brussels, Belgium


Following the successful 2nd Future Internet Usage Areas workshop in Brussels last year, the EX-FI project, the CONCORD project, the EFIA Consultation group and the European Commission now would like to invite you to the 3rd Usage Areas workshop.

This workshop aims to cultivate a common discussion between the stakeholders from all sectors using, and planning to use, the services and facilities of Future Internet (FI) to build an extended FI community and to foster a holistic cross sector approach to accelerating the Future Internet in Europe.

The workshop will enable a detailed discussion on the Usage Areas requirements and in particular how they can be part of the bigger picture of Future Internet evolution in Europe. A specific ambition will be to identify how additional usage areas may share and benefit from the approach of the FI-PPP while working under complementary programmes. Another ambition is to promote an ongoing discussion about the priorities and the activities in the community not directly involved in the PPP and how to organise this.

Themes to be addressed:

The themes and open questions to be addressed during the Workshop include:

(1)  In light of the use cases already underway , what additional use cases and scenarios do you consider to be appropriate and
      representative for large-scale experimentation in close association with the Future Internet PPP and how could this be achieved?
(2)  How can we determine the interoperability and synergy between use cases to stimulate fewer, but larger and stronger, use case trials?
(3)  Can we exploit the common enablers’ concept and the open platform philosophy to stimulate a massive expansion of the development of
      applications and services in Europe?  
(4)  How can we prioritise use cases with significant societal and economical impact
(5)   What sort of pan European experimentation environment do you consider necessary for large scale service trials in your use area? How
      can we get to this ideal scenario?
(6)   What can we expect from the FI-PPP and its future calls in terms of supporting 3rd party innovation?
(7)   How can the remaining FP7 calls and the Eureka CELTIC calls and other Eureka clusters assist with this initiative?
(8)   Should we develop a European “Use Case Factory” to focus the inclusive discussions on cross sector collaboration?
(9)   How should the discussion and community be organised to ensure involvement, influence and active contribution from the sector players?
(10)   What demands should we place on the Common Strategic Framework for Research and Innovation to continue this initiative beyond 2013?
