FIA Poznan Reports

A powerhouse for regional growth

While European leaders grappled in Brussels with the complex and uncertain financial and political context, researchers and policy-makers were gathering in Poznan, Poland, for a week of visionary activity of another kind.
It is not difficult to argue that in the long-term, the Future Internet could be the answer to a number of Europe‟s problems. Over the past two decades ICT has driven economic growth and innovation in the EU. And the Future Internet holds equal promise.
