  1. 1. Going Global: The International Dimension of FInES Research andInternational Cooperation Task Force Dr. Markus Eisenhauer Brussels, 2011/11/30
  2. 2. Why going global?• Highlight Europes position in the area of Future Internet and enterprise systems at international level• Improve international visibility of FInES• Exchange information and experience• Establish networks in special technology or application fields with the access to new market knowledge and know-how• Competitives requires enterprises to benchmark themselves at global level. ••• 2
  3. 3. Cooperation is based on shared interestsTopics as e.g.• Enterprise Interoperability• Collaboration in Networked Enterprises• Virtual enterprises• Consensus on standards• business value innovationwill be key features for innovation and exchange.Emphasis should be on topics relevant for SME needs for technology to drive cooperation bottom up instead of top-down ••• 3
  4. 4. Going internationalexchange of the FinES Cluster with activities in• the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China)• with the US,• with Japan• with South Korea• Asian-Pacific• Africa• South Americawill be of outmost importance and will stimulate and facilitate the global outreach of the FInES cluster and enhance its awareness.Of course reciprocity is key ••• 4
  5. 5. Report: International Collaboration• Regions:• US & Canada• Latin America (Brazil)• Asian Pacific (China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, but as well Australia and New Zealand)• India• Strong interest from Africa ••• 5
  6. 6. Highlights International Collaboration• Keynote on IoT and report on FInES activities at Rio-Info, 2010_08_31-09_02• Contacts with several Brazilian Universities , Research Institutes and Industry• IST Africa in May 2011 with great success• Kick-off of BEMO-COFRA in September 2011 in Recife, Brasil (ICT EU-Brazil Coordinated call)• COIN-China Workshop on Oct 20th• EURASIA Workshop on Nov 30th - Panel with Asia-Pacific (Korea, New Zealand, etc.). ••• 6
  7. 7. International Collaboration• Use of ICT for socio-economic progress and the role of Digital Ecosystems enabling Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to compete on the global stage• Cooperation topics e.g. with China focused on topics like networks connectivity, high- performance computing, cloud computing, Internet of Things, and IPv6• IoT is of general interest• Emerging Business models where intensively discussed at a workshop in Stanford, US. – Will be in Princeton 2012 ••• 7
  8. 8. Future collaboration with EFFRA• Mutual contributions to Roadmap activities• Consultation and contributions to ActionPlanT – Vision on manufacturing• Joint session on manufacture at the next FIA in Aalborg ••• 8
  9. 9. Topics of interest• Internet of Things is of outmost interest for US, Japan, China, South Korea, Brazil• Business needs (specifically for SMEs)• Future Internet (emerging future enterprises)• Security & Trust• Ecological responsibility (‚green‘ topics)• Intelligent Logistics• Energy efficiency• smart cities• e-health• Digital Ecosystems... ••• 9
  10. 10. Strategy for FInES• Diversification or concentration?• FInES is a cluster consisting of more than 25 FP7 projects (plus FP6 projects)• Projects will follow their own agenda• FInES can create added-value based on the Roadmap• To create momentum we need concrete actions ••• 10
  11. 11. FInES Research Roadmap1. Socio-economic Space – the larger context in which enterprises operate. – social responsibility of enterprises, – impact on the environment and their carbon footprint, – Values beyond the pure financial dimension. ••• 11
  12. 12. FInES Research Roadmap2. Enterprise Space – geared towards a continuous innovation paradigm – key characteristics of future enterprises – emerging business and production models, – new governance and organization paradigms, – new forms of cooperation: – including the investigation on new styles for the relationships with customers, yielding new market forms and logics. ••• 12
  13. 13. FInES Research Roadmap3. Enterprise Systems, Platforms, and Applications Space – ICT solutions and socio-technical systems aimed at supporting the emerging future enterprises that will largely operate over the Future Internet. – issues need to be aligned with business needs and the rationale identified for the future enterprises. ••• 13
  14. 14. FInES Research Roadmap4. Enabling Technology Space – knowledge space for ICT solutions necessary for the development of FInES – Future Internet solutions, – knowledge representation, – cooperation and interoperability, – trust and security advanced services, etc – Certain ICT enabling solutions will be available ‘by default’ – Other solutions will need to be ‘solicited’ for the purpose of FInES. ••• 14
  15. 15. Roadmap Research challengesOut of the nine challenges specifically•Unified Digital Enterprise (RC5),•Cooperation and collaboration platforms (RC6)•and as well Flexible Execution platforms (RC9)are strongly affected by international activities andhave great potential of taking advantage ofstrategic international collaboration. ••• 15
