FI content will participate in the workshop on “Policy and Business Challenges in Realising Internet Services of the Future”, organised by the Future Internet PPP Working Groups on Policy, Regulation and Governance (PRG) and Exploitation and Business Modeling (EBM) on 21st November 2013 in the Centre Albert Brochette in Brussels.
This workshop offers a unique opportunity to meet stakeholders related to political and economic challenges and to identify and follow-up actions to resolve obstacles within Europe on the background of the 600 million € Future Internet Public-Private Partnership programme. The main goal of the workshop is to bring together relevant stakeholders from industry, policy, intermediary organisations and research to identify policy and business conditions for achieving societal and business success of the Future Internet PPP program aimed at development and introduction of Internet services of the future. The workshop will cover two central themes of high relevance in relation to FI-PPP’s impact and success, which will be approached from both policy and business perspective:
1. Business ecosystem development and SME engagement for FI-PPP’s impact and success.
2. Open business models and open access policies for exploitation of the FI-PPP’s assets.
The workshop will result in a set of possible solutions and recommendations to overcome the identified problems and challenges. Both long-term actions, e.g. in regard to business innovation, legal, regulatory, societal, and technical conditions, and short-term pragmatic best practice actions will be considered.
Carmen Mac Williams, Director from Grassroots Arts and Research will be one of the speakers in Session 1: Business ecosystem development and SMEs engagement for FI-PPP’s impact and and success.
