The Future Internet Public-Private Partnership (FI-PPP) is advancing a shared vision for harmonised European-scale technology platforms and their implementation, as well as the integration and harmonisation of the relevant policy, legal, political and regulatory frameworks. Part of the Digital Agenda for Europe, the FI-PPP will make infrastructures and business processes smarter (i.e. more intelligent, more efficient, more sustainable) through tighter integration with Internet networking and computing capabilities.
The XIFI project supports advanced experiments on the FI-PPP core platform in order to leverage existing public investments in advanced infrastructures. In particular, XIFI is establishing a marketplace for test infrastructures and Future Internet services to cope with large trial deployments involving users. This is being achieved through a core federation of test infrastructures, and by coordinating efforts with ongoing FI infrastructures and pilots (FIRE, EIT ICT Labs, CIP pilots, Living Labs) assisted by investments in pan-European infrastructures such as GEANT.
XIFI has received EC research funding.
