How to push research boundaries and gain competitive edge

EIT ICT Labs' project fanTaaStic joins forces with CI-FIRE for a dynamic, interactive workshop in Paris to foster the sustainable use of FIRE test facilities, for education, research or business. The workshop explores opportunities for the uptake of large-scale test beds and platforms across a broad range of applications, services and technologies for the Future Internet.
