  • EC vision about the future of IT: a new generation of European services which are innovative, high added value, and in line with EU values and policies EC role: facilitate the development of this new generation of European services what about 2016, 2026? Internet as key enabler for the future services - 20 years of public Internet transformed our way of working, living and creating - It is just the start. - How to ride the next 20 years of new services and applications? - Below you see the network, from Arpanet to Internet to Future Internet. As it is it can not releash the innovation potential of Services and Applications. - the network is the necessary basis, and has to be changed dramatically (capacity, scalability, architecture). - (Note that the technical choices may set the rules of business, the position of users (empowered or not), requires, impact or make outdated some the policies .) already said in previous slide now
  • Trends we see in everyday IT and in our research projects Cloud is becoming the engine of Internet: most of our research projects are related in some way to clouds Mobile applications are mainstream and growing a lot faster than desktop apps Social networks are today’s boom and here to stay Serious gaming a new trend with enormous possibilities And all these go together: e.g. serious games based on social networks, played by mobile users, powered by cloud. These trends create challenges: Clouds needs standards, privacy, security Social and mobile apps need robust service platforms Games needs research on service front-ends All need robust software engineering
  • Let’s see how our projects (Call 5) address these challenges Bold = IPs Standard font = STREPs
  • WP 2011-2012 is simplified and focused towards future challenges
  • The workprogramme is open towards ALL technologies in the selected fields: Cloud computing Internet of services Advanced software engineering And all the “interesting things” are happening in the Internet today! The technologies mentioned here are just examples, but the WP does not pose limitations (we want bright ideas even if not about subjects explicitly mentioned in the WP !!!)
  • Cloud computing is central in future internet. Cloud strategy in EC has two main dimensions: policy and research/innovation These strategies are complementary: research is needed to have technical means to actually apply a policy (e.g. in privacy) In this slides only some policies are shown. Other D.A. actions are also important
  • FP8: two schemes to address both long-term “blue sky” research and more innovation oriented research The issue in FP7 is the proliferation of small projects with high administrative costs and no common direction => unsatisfactory results The 2 complementary schemes of FP8 are meant to address this issue
  • Differences between the 2 schemes
  • FP8 will be in sync with the overall objectives defined by the DA and with general EU policies

  • Trends towards Call 8
    • Trends
    • Cloud, mobile, social, games
    • Internet
            • Issues
            • Huge scale
            • Huge opportunities
            • Huge complexity
      • Technologies (e.g.)
      • Linked data
      • Social networks intelligence (getting useful stuff from social networks)
      • Collective intelligence (crowdsourcing)
      • Privacy modelling
  • Cloud strategy = Policy + Research Interoperability & standards European Interoperability Framework D.A. actions 21-27 Privacy D.A. action 35 revision of EU privacy framework Security D.A. actions 28-41 modernized ENISA S calability, Data and application portability, Cross-platform execution, Interoperability, Data protection, Energy efficiency, Open source software stack Policy areas (Digital Agenda) Research (Workprogramme) Action 21: Propose legislation on ICT interoperability Action 35: Guidance on implementation of Telecoms rules on privacy Action 28: Reinforced Network and Information Security Policy
  • Looking a bit further FP8 Starting 2014 Link to grand European challenges Based on the Digital Agenda Open innovation Better management and simpler administration Issue: small and scattered projects => small results and no overall direction Two complementary approaches Open light and fast Roadmap based research
  • Looking a bit further Open light and fast Bottom-up innovation driven SME friendly attractive for young researchers explorative research Roadmap based research Top-down structured, industry participation mid term goals from research to commercialization harnessing innovation to social needs
  • Looking a bit further Some objectives (from the Digital Agenda) “ greater focus on demand-and user-driven partnerships ” “ leverage more private investment ” “ structural shift to less resource-intensive products and services” “ continue to invest in high-risk research ” “ industry-led initiatives for open innovation ” “ standards and open platforms for new products and services”
