This is the Opening Session of the 2-days FIWARE SMART FEST event. It is dedicated to not only getting the latest and greatest news and announcements from FIWARE’s chairman and CEO, but also compelling keynotes on achievements in the development and exploitation of data exchange technologies, the adoption of global standards such as ETSI‘s NGSI-LD, Smart Data Models, standard-based development of smart solutions, the use of these standards to exchange data among multiple organizations in different domains, as well as the creation of use cases and applications that can be leveraged globally.
We will hear about the strategic approach towards data spaces as key deliverables of the European strategy for data and well as success cases e.g. from India.
FIWARE will also announce new strategic partnerships and projects, including the first results of the recently founded DSBA (Data Spaces Business Alliance) and it’s next fundamental steps to global success.
