MULTI-SITE FIWARE EVENT:
Connecting cities to the Internet of the Future
AGENDA LIVE STREAMING
15th, 16th and 17th of October 2014
Seville – Valencia – Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
The Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR), following the guidelines of the European Commission, is fostering the implementation of the Internet of the Future. For that purpose, events have been prepared to show the potential of the platform FIWARE, which may be used for Smart Cities and industrial processes.
The 15th, 16th and 17th of October, a multi-site event organized by FIWARE will take place in the cities of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Seville and Valencia, thus following the event that took place last year in Santander.
This event will focus on the FIWARE Accelerator Programme, through which the European Commission destines 80 million euros to SMEs and entrepreneurs developing innovative services thanks to this platform. Start-up accelerators with a Spanish presence, entities which are in charge of distributing the funds, will be especially highlighted in these events.
During these days, participants will be informed about the necessary requirements to access current and future calls, will attend conferences and showcases to witness FIWARE’s potential and will discover the different funding possibilities.
To enhance knowledge of FIWARE, participants can access a laboratory open to innovation (FIWARE Lab – lab.fiware.org), which is constantly updated with open data from Smart Cities.
Furthermore, each city will add specific training and entrepreneurial activities to the agenda:
