  4. 4. The objectives of FIRE STATION1 To move the FIRE facility towards a morecustomer-driven, dynamic, effective, sustainable,easy-to-access and easy-to-use experimentalplatform2 To intensify the collaboration amongst theFIRE Community• FIRE projects and all related stakeholders, such as other testbeds, testbed initiatives, customers of testbeds - projects, researchers from academy and industry 4
  5. 5. The organization of FIRE STATIONFIRE STATION implements a FIRE Office and a FIREArchitecture Board:- The FIRE Office serves as a single contact point and a mediator when looking for experimental resources or new customers;- The FIRE Architecture Board involves all FIRE facility builders to decide on the strategy and means to facilitate the development of FIRE offerings. 5
  6. 6. The FIRE Architecture Board (1/2)The mission of the FIRE Architecture Board is tostrengthen the coordination and collaborationamong the projects developing FIRE test facilities,including the demand-driven extensions.Main objectives: • Supporting the harmonization and extension of the future and existing experimental facilities in FIRE. • Supporting the development of heterogeneous federation of experimental facilities; 6
  7. 7. The FIRE Architecture Board (2/2)FIRE Architecture Board members investigatevarious topics related to FIRE:• Measurement and benchmarking, methodology and tools, portal• FIRE Sustainability, business models, standardization issues.• FIRE strategy (e.g. international collaboration, FP8 preparation)• FIRE roadmap for the experimental facilities• Advancement of the projects (open calls info day, feedback from workshops, next steps)The FIRE Architecture Board is an operational FIRE-wideforumFIRE STATION chairs and moderates the Architecture Board; meetingsare being held regularly. 7
  8. 8. FIRE Office: awareness and visibilityFIRE STATION supports and coordinates the FIRE presencein main European events e.g.- ICT event 2010: - FIRE exhibition stands as well as many sessions- FI Week Ghent: FIRE Day; two sessions at FIA Event- FI Week Budapest: FIRE Research Workshop, one session on FIRE and Living Labs- FI Week Poznan: FIRE Conference incl. FIRE Call 8 session; “International collaboration on testbeds“ session in FIA; Demo evening together with Service Wave & FIA- FI Week Aalborg: Hands-On FIRE! Demo event, EU-Japan Workshop- FI Week Dublin: Hands-On FIRE! Demo event… 8
  9. 9. FIRE Office: web site and newsletterThe FIRE web site (, maintained byFIRE STATION, contains information on the FIREoffering, projects and use cases; information onupcoming and past events as well as the news areregularly updated.One contact point for FIRE: contact@ict-fire.euAlong with the papers and the deliverables, a FIREnewsletter is released periodically with informationon the recent activities of FIRE. 9
