Our group is also participating in the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme FIspace project.

FIspace--Future Internet Business Collaboration Networks in Agri-Food, Transport and Logistics—will be a Future-Internet-based extensible SaaS-platform that will enable seamless, efficient, and effective business collaboration across organizational boundaries and will facilitate the establishment of ecosystems with business benefits for both stakeholders from industrial sectors as well as the ICT industry.

The project will leverage and extend the domain-solutions and stakeholder communities for international transport and logistics and agri-food developed during the first phase of the EU projects FInest and SmartAgriFood. This extension of capabilities will allow for cross-domain use of the FIspace service to address multi-domain business challenges.

The focus of the project will be to implement and test the FIspace solution and its underlying technologies, specifically the FI-WARE GEs, using multi-domain trial experiments.

The objectives of FIspace are to drive the development of an integrated and extensible collaboration service together with an initial set of domain applications, thereby establishing the standard for supporting and optimizing inter-organizational business collaboration in global transport, logistics, and agri-food business.
