On Tuesday, March 12th, we were at CeBIT, the world's largest and most international IT expo. Together with FI-Content we held a full day conference and exhibition around the theme Future Internet PPP: Open Platforms for Entrepreneurs in Europe.

FI-WARE and FI-Content are both part of the FI-PPP programme and address complementary goals. FI-WARE concentrates on providing generic software modules/services, called Generic Enablers, that ease the development and deployment of applications in multiple domains. FI-Content layers on top of these generic modules with platforms for media entrepreneurs.

In CeBIT's area dedicated to Research and Innovation, we had the following Future Talk conferences:
