FIWARE “Media & Content” open day – Funding Opportunities and Technical Training


The event will take place on March 6 and will host presentations on funding opportunities, demonstrations and a training workshop around FIcontent technologies and FIWARE.

Next March 6 marks the FIWARE Media & Content Open Day which will be celebrated at the Design Hub Barcelona Building. Its main objective is to serve as a platform to explain the funding opportunities offered by FIWARE accelerators, with over 80 million euros to finance SME’s, entrepreneurs and developers, as well as to raise awareness and provide training on FIContent and FIWARE. The conference is organized by the FIContent project, together with the i2CAT Foundation and in collaboration with the Department of Creativity and Innovation of the Institute of Culture of Barcelona.

These sessions represent a great opportunity for PIMES, entrepreneurs and developers who wish to participate in calls for funding within the FIWARE accelerator, which grant projects that use technologies provided by FIcontent and FIWARE. The event will be attended by the following FIWARE accelerators: CreatiFI, FIC3, EuropeanPioneers, IMpaCT, FABulous. They will explain the details and objectives of the upcoming 2015 Open Calls oriented to creative industries.

The day is a great opportunity for the technological community, as they will learn and deepen their understanding of the use of Media & Content technologies provided by FIcontent and FIWARE, and receive information by companies and universities which have developed these technologies. The sessions will also serve to expand the opportunities and the participant’s horizons with the new edition of the Apps&Culture 2015 contest, which this year, is dedicated to boost the use of FIWARE technologies in the development of mobile applications.

The day offers various training sessions led by FIcontent own developers structured in three technological platforms:
