FP7 EU Project, MyFIRE, kick off in Barcelona

Contributed by: ETSI

The project MyFIRE addresses the optimisation of the Future Internet experimentation and international collaboration. The project will optimize the setting up and use of testbeds by increasing awareness on economic data and technical testbeds related best practices.
The European project MyFIRE englobles 8 organisations from Europe, Brazil, Russian Federation, India and China. The project recently kicked-off its activities in Barcelona. The project was launched on June 1st, 2010 through the 7th framework Programme, under the ICT thematic priority "Future Internet experimental facility and experimentally-driven research". It will last two years and has a total budget of 800.000 Euros.

The goal of the project is to increase the benefits of experimentation in the field of Future Internet Research by: improving the functionality of experimentation and stimulating the use of experimentation while understanding the expected outcomes.

<b> The project will particularly look at three main topics: </b>
- Research and technology, by identifying the real needs for testbeds from the researchers and industry communities to use experimental facilities in the future.
- Standardisation, by identifying standardised methodology and approaches to the use of testbeds, to promote innovation and leverage the research results.
- Innovation process and social and economic impacts, by identifying economic costs and benefits and results of using the testbeds for validating research results, and requirements of the business model.

While 2010 will mostly consist of data collection phase, preliminary results will be issued from 2011 and publicly disseminated in workshops. These will be held in Europe and abroad.

The project MyFIRE will pay a special attention to the development of international cooperation with other initiatives similar to FIRE, especially in the four BRIC partner countries (Brazil, Russia, India And China) of the MyFIRE consortium.

MyFIRE is a project co-financed by the European Commission under the 7th framework program for RTD. Started in June 2010 it will last 2 years. Gathering 8 organisations from Europe (INNO, ETSI, Fraunhofer, University of Edinburg), Brazil (IPT), Russian Federation (ITMO), India (ERNET) and China (BII).
