The ceFIMS-CONNECT project was initiated in March 2014 and aims to continue the good work of the ceFIMS project in supporting the European Future Internet Forum (FIF) and the development of National FI chapters. The earlier work of the ceFIMS project has successfully laid the groundwork for a more strategic and coordinated investment in the Future Internet in Europe and at Member State levels.
ceFIMS-CONNECT will support the European Future Internet Forum (FIF) by providing a Secretariat and supporting the activities of the FIF in the process of transition into Horizon 2020 and the new 5G PPP. It will support Member State and Associate State Future Internet initiatives and the National FI Chapters by facilitating the collection and sharing of information on Member State and Associate State FI initiatives, strategies and priorities by establishing mechanisms for exchange of experiences, best practices and for identifying common challenges and cooperation opportunities. It will also undertake targeted dissemination activities to Member States and Associated States in cooperation with other FIRE projects.
Through its Secretariat to the EU FIF, ceFIMS-CONNECT will work closely with the European Commission and the FIF in the development of strategies for promoting greater alignment of Future Internet investment priorities at National and European levels.
The ceFIMS-CONNECT project will support of the development of National FIF Chapters to ensure that national agencies involved in the funding of such facilities have greater visibility of activities in other EU countries and in the European framework to ensure more cost effect investments and sharing of information.
