Funding for SMEs to get involved in Future Internet
The Fed4FIRE project is offering funding for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to carry out experiments related to Future Internet research.
The funding will be available through a competitive call that closes on 2nd April 2014. Up to €25,000 is availble for each successful application for experiments of up to four months duration. Full details of how to apply can be found at the Fed4FIRE website www.fed4fire.eu.
Fed4FIRE is a federation of test facilities which gives researchers access to a diverse range of resources - wifi test facilties, cloud computing, networking and distributed sensors - to support Future Internet research. EPCC provides some of the these facilities through the BonFIRE testbed (www.bonfire-project.eu), and we would like to hear from any SMEs that might be interested in submitting a proposal. Anyone with ideas for a proposal that they would like to discuss with us should contact Mark Sawyer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Fed4FIRE is a Framework 7 project supported by the European Commission, contract no 318389.
