What is FIcontent ?
FIcontent provides “Enablers” (software blocks) to SMEs and developers, so they can create applications and services in the areas of social connected TV, smart city services, and pervasive games.
The FIcontent Enablers complement the FIWARE catalogue of Generic Enablers (GE), with technologies dedicated to media & content.
The FI-PPP Programme
FI content is one of the flagship FI-PPP projects supported by the European Commission. FI-PPP represents a total funding of around 600 millions euros over 5 years to build Europe’s Future Internet. We have entered the 3rd and last phase of FI-PPP.
Phase 3 sub-grantees can use our specific enablers for free, until the end of the programme.
