The Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) initiative created a multidisciplinary test environment for investigating and experimentally validating innovative networking and service paradigms.
FIRE offered infrastructure, methodology and tools for experimentation. It created a dynamic, sustainable and large-scale European experimental infrastructure by gradually connecting and federating existing and next generation testbeds for Future Internet technologies. In addition, FIRE promoted the concept of experimentally-driven research, combining visionary academic research with the wide-scale testing and experimentation that is required for industry.
Note that the efforts of FIRE carried on in the The Next Generation Internet (NGI) Initiative. See the HUB4NGI project for more information on this.Digital Innovation Platforms
AmpliFIRE was a support action preparing the FIRE Initiative for year 2020, strengthening the exploitation and impact creation capacities of FIRE facilities.
AmpliFIRE’s key results are:
IT Innovation led the roadmapping activities of FIRE; we created the vision and roadmap document, which is available as a book chapter here, and we organised events and online polls to interact with the FIRE community to agree on the roadmap's proposed implementation steps.
IT Innovation's role was to lead the roadmapping activities of FIRE.We created the roadmap document (the white paper is available here), we organised events and online polls to interact with the FIRE community to agree on the roadmap's proposed implementation steps.
The AmpliFIRE project was a 36 month project funded by the EC FP7 framework programme.
