The overall goal of Future Internet Research Experimentation (FIRE) is combining technological and social innovation by investigating and experimenting new paradigms related to the Internet, both for future Internet architectures and a holistic and multidisciplinary understanding of Internet developments.
The objective will be complemented with an EU-Japan co-ordinated call (see Objective 10.1) and an EU-Brazil co-ordinated call (see Objective 10.2).
Specific objectives of FIRE in WP2013:
(a) To support new testbed facilities in areas not yet covered by existing ones, or to extend the most successful ones.
The projects should reserve at least 50% of their budget for open calls addressing innovative usages, extensions and experiments, based on :
Pilots and experiments should be replicable, reusable and scalable. The selection criteria should be based on a combination of excellence and crowd-sourcing when possible.
(b) To support experimentally driven research, in particular to conduct multidisciplinary investigation of key techno-social issues (i.e. Internet Science www.internet-science.eu/, including network neutrality, privacy by design, cloudification, crowd-sourcing etc.), exploiting any relevant FIRE facilities, considering also benefits for citizens, ethical and sustainability aspects.
A multidisciplinary approach is encouraged to include beyond technologically oriented partners, also at least two participant entities with a main focus of activity addressing sociology, economy, law, content/culture, and/or perception/interfaces.
(c) Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) to:
(d) EU-South Africa cooperation on future internet experimental research and testbed interconnection.
This activity aims at improving the capabilities of testbeds on future internet technologies in Europe and in South Africa. South African organisations are expected to contribute a significant share of the funding they require for this activity.
(e) EU-China cooperation on future internet experimental research and IPv6
The goal is to build a partnership between European and Chinese organisations to foster cooperation in the domain of future internet research experimentation and IPv6.
This should include in particular:
Proposals are expected to build upon the achievements by similar past or ongoing projects.
(f) EU-South Korea cooperation on future internet experimental research
This activity aims to develop experiments on individual testbeds but also across testbeds for understanding the management of heterogeneous resources, the access to these resources and the evaluation of their usage.
It will exploit the links between current activities in Europe and in South Korea. Research will focus on software defined networking (SDN) enabling parallel deployment of slices assigned to virtual network providers. The software developed in the research project will be deployed and evaluated in the testing facilities in both, Europe and South Korea.
Relevant challenge: 1. Pervasive and Trusted Network and Service Infrastructures
