Network European Software and Services Initiative - Support Office Team, final activity report

Project ID: 034359
Funded under: FP6-IST


Now that the Internet has become a commodity for professional and everyday life, businesses and citizens aspire to access ICT-based services in a more seamless, natural fashion. Target sectors range from public health, government and educational services to energy, transport, skills and mass services to individual users.
This demand defines a new global system, in which every electronic medium will support the provision of services. This creates the need for an open, service-oriented approach, with the Internet as its underlying infrastructure and designed to meet the expectations of a service-oriented economy.
Europe aims to play a major role in this shift towards an Internet of Services. The Network European Software and Services Initiative (NESSI) was launched in September 2005 to support this shared vision, with the mission of developing a strategy for software and services driven by a common European research agenda.
Three years on, NESSI is promoted by 22 industrial and academic partners and a community of 500 members from 300 organisations.
