This event was organised and promoted by the Dimes association within the Fireworks Project (http://www.ict-fireworks.eu) and co-organised by the Directorate General for Information Society and Media of the European Commission, with the workshop aiming to effectively identify a clear roadmap to be used as input to future EU framework programmes for ICT.

“The FIRE strategy workshop was a very successful event that focused in on the future challenges ahead within the experimental testing facilities area on a European level, with the outcome working towards the harmonisation of a process for the European testbed field” sayes Miguel.
Throughout this FIRE 3 day event parallel discussions were ongoing for the duration of the meeting, with detailed and in-depth discussions around many topics related to this area such as monitoring and virtualisation challenges and requirements for the European experimental facilities.
This workshop was deemed without doubt a successful and beneficial event, that TSSG-WIT were honoured to be part of and they look forward to future similar brainstorming events that push the boundaries of research and innovation in the experimental testing facilities and Future Internet fields.
