Project Proposal Objective FI.ICT-2011.1.8 Use Case scenarios and early trials

Experience from industry and insights gained during Phase I of the FI PPP provide strong evidence for the need and opportunities of supporting collaborative business networks by means of Future Internet technology. Such opportunities include the increased efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of business activities, as well as reduced barriers for business participation of small and medium enterprises (see Figure 1).future_internet_will_facilitate.png

The objectives of FIspace are to drive the development of an integrated and extensible collaboration service together with an initial set of domain applications, thereby establishing the standard for supporting and optimizing inter-organizational business collaboration in global transport, logistics, and agri-food business.

These objectives will be achieved through leveraging and capitalizing on the outcomes of two successful Phase I use case projects – FInest and SmartAgriFood –, as well as by utilizing the generic enablers available from the FI PPP Core Platform (FI-WARE). Successful achievement of these objectives will be demonstrated through extensive trial experiments in the domains of agri-food and transport and logistics businesses that comprise diverse trial sites, usage scenarios, and stakeholders.
