The FIRE future structure and evolution report available

The Future Internet Research and Experimentation - FIRE - is Europe’s open lab for Future Internet Research, Development and Innovation. FIRE is the accelerator within Europe’s Future Internet innovation ecosystem. FIRE is sustainable, part of a thriving platform ecosystem, and creates substantial business and societal impact through resolving societal challenges.

One of the key tasks of the AmpliFIRE Coordination and Support Action is to identify strategic directions for the FIRE programme in order to make recommendations to the European Commission and establish common ground within the FIRE community. This document presents our findings up to March 2014. Building on former work regarding the FIRE vision and scenarios, it centres on the concept of the FIRE Ecosystem and identifies strategic options for further evolution of the FIRE Ecosystem towards 2020. The document proposes a mission statement, a set of strategic objectives and an overview of strategic actions in domains such as: FIRE infrastructures and facilities, services, collaboration, and ecosystem building.
