FIWARE BEST PRACTICE AND FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES

Workshop Programme Plenary 2
13:30 – 14:30
Develop your business with the help from FIWARE infrastructures and accelerator programmes for energy and cleantech

Fiona Williams, Ericsson (FINESCE)
Adrián Ferrero (INCENSe)
Olaf-Gerd Gemein (Speed UP! Europe)
Calum Cameron (CEED Tech)

FINESCE has successfully applied FIWARE in the domain of smart energy, by running large trials with consumer and prosumer households, office buildings, virtual power plants, smart factories and electric cars. For phase 3, the FIWARE Accelerators INCENSe, Speed UP! Europe and CEED Tech pick up this domain and offer funding and support for developing new ideas, applications and business models. This workshops shows the potentials of FIWARE and what the Accelerators have to offer. In a 99sec-Session every startup will have the chance to present their idea.

15:00-16:00

FIWARE BEST PRACTICE AND FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES

Workshop Programme Plenary 3
13:30-14:30
FIWARE for Manufacturing and Logistic Enterprises: Expansion of existing trials

Sergio Gusmeroli, (FITMAN)
Sjaak Wolfert (FISPACE)
Francisco Bujan (FABulous)
Harald Sundmaeker (FINISH)

The projects FITMAN and FISPACE are currently testing and experimenting FIWare Generic Enablers in manufacturing and logistics industrial trials. FABulous and FINISH will issue Open Calls for SMEs and Web Entrepreneurs interested in developing innovative applications in manufacturing and logistics. The workshop aims at exploiting joint opportunities, identifying possible barriers and bottlenecks as well as roadmapping a common approach to a successful expansion of existing use cases by new components developed in the FIWARE accelerator programme.

15:00-16:00
What FIWARE can do for the IoT

Richard Stevens (IDC) – Market Opportunities & Business Trends for IoT and Connected Smart Objects
Jesper Meulengracht (Grundfos Connect) – Lessons & business opportunities for IoT digital business transformation in traditional industries
Carlos Ralli (FIWARE) – FIWARE IoT Proposal & Community
Oscar Lazaro (FITMAN) – FITMAN Approach to manufacturing platforms and IoT
Christoph Thuemmler (FIStar) – IoT and Future Internet Platforms in the health sector
Peter Friess (EC) – Ecosystems for IoT and Connected Smart Objects

The disruptive impact on future businesses, citizens and society of the Internet of Things in an Internet of Everything is no longer disputed. Over the recent past, we have witnessed how companies of all sizes are embracing the IoT technologies and working on innovative business propositions. Moreover, connected communities and ecosystems are starting to emerge being supported not only by embedded system manufacturers such ARM but also by end users aiming at delivering value added services on top of their traditional businesses models and products. New computing paradigms such as Fog Computing provide an amenable support and a more effective exploitation capabilities of the features that IoT technology can leverage to people and businesses. The workshop aims at bringing together key stakeholders to share their experiences, lessons learned, plans in the FIWARE, IoT and open innovation ecosystem domains and jointly identify the opportunities that FIWARE and IoT open ecosystems will bring to business development in general and to future FIWARE web-entrepreneurs taking part in the FIWARE acceleration programme in particular.
