FIWARE Mundus Committee’s Vice-Chairman for Africa Pierre-Yves Danet, from Orange, managed to get an invitation from Maroc Numeric Cluster (MNC) for FIWARE to participate at the Smart City Expo World Congress event in Casablanca, Morocco. The main objective if this presence was to advertise the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding between MNC and the FIWARE Foundation. A FIWARE-MNC booth was set up, and a speaking slot was offered to present FIWARE. A good number of visitors came at the booth, and the room was full when the FIWARE presentation was given by Stefano De Panfilis, COO of the FIWARE Foundation.  The Mundus Team was completed by Géraldine Quetin from InterInnov.

FIWARE Mundus is currently supporting the set-up of a local FIWARE node with MNC and e-Madina. The MoU supports the process between FIWARE stakeholders in Morocco and FIWARE Mundus. MNC, e-Medina, Orange, the FIWARE Foundation and FIWARE Mundus are committed to work together on a common action plan to set up a Morocco FIWARE ecosystem, including communication activities, identification of data providers, working with the local EC bureau to identify relevant development funds, besides setting up the node.

A meeting with Orange Morocco was held aside the event to organise the FIWARE node hosting between MNC and Orange.
