The major objective of the 2nd Fed4FIRE+ Open Call is to make the federated infrastructure directly available for experimenters from SMEs with a limited amount of effort in preparing the proposals and increasing the quality of the experiments.
The purpose of this 2nd Fed4FIRE+ Open Call is to work with a staged proposal submission process:
The experiments submitted in Stage 1 are innovative experiments with a limited time in order to collect information on feasibility, requirements, challenges, etc. to prepare for the 2nd stage.
The experiments submitted in the 2nd stage are proposals for more extensive innovative experiments which are built upon the proposals and experiments run after selection in the 1st stage. Examples of such experiments may include but are not limited to testing of new protocols or algorithms, performance measurements, and/or service experiments.
Total available funding for the 2nd Open Call:
Maximum requested funding per experiment:
Fed4FIRE+ is a Research and Innovation Action under the European Horizon 2020 Programme addressing the work programme topic Future Internet Research and Experimentation. The project started on 01 January 2017 and runs for 60 months, until the end of 2021.
The Fed4FIRE+ project has the objective to run and further improve Fed4FIRE+’s “best-in-town” federation of experimentation facilities for the Future Internet Research and Experimentation initiative. Federating a heterogeneous set of facilities covering technologies ranging from wireless, wired, cloud services and open flow, and making them accessible through common frameworks and tools suddenly opens new possibilities, supporting a broad range of experimenter communities covering a wide variety of Internet infrastructures, services and applications.
