ComVantage will take part in the next FInES cluster meeting. The cluster members will meet in Brussels on 12th October. ComVantage will share with the cluster the project vision and technology approach to Future Enterprise System solutions.

The main active projects from the Future Internet Networked Enterprise System (FInES) cluster will meet next 12th October in Brussels. Ten new projects oriented towards the Factories of the Future joined the FInES cluster recently and the meeting focused on their introduction to the cluster.

ComVantage as part of the FInES cluster, shared the project vision on requirements for inter-organisational product centric information exchange spaces designed for effective collaboration. Dr Angelika Salmen, from SAP Research Dresden, SAP AG, as leader of the ComVantage project introduced the main technological challenges that the project must address in order to deliver easy to handle and trustful collaboration applications for mobile interaction. Dr Angelika Salmen also presented the technical research solutions proposed to facilitate a secure collaboration via dynamic and de-centralised access to information with verified business added value.

An equally important objective of the meeting was to discuss and integrate all the FInES projects’ contributions into the new FInES Research Roadmap draft and kick-off the activities of new Task Forces within the cluster. During the meeting, Dr Oscar Lazaro, from Innovalia Association, as “SMEs in the Future Internet” Task Force Leader provided a presentation introducing the mission statement for the Task Force, proposed a first set of research questions to be addressed by the Task Force and listed the first set of activities that the Task Force will promote. ComVantage highlighted the importance of identifying SMEs as prosumers of FI enablers and the importance to acknowledge the business diversity encompassed by the term SME, which derives in the need to elaborate richer frameworks describing SME business and their role in the Future Internet (FI).
