The FIREBALL project is an EU funded FP7 project. The overall objective of the project is to coordinate and align methodologies and approaches in the domains of Future Internet research and experimentation test-beds and user driven open innovation towards successful innovation in “Smart City” environments.

Research objectives

The FIREBALL project aims to establish effective forms of cooperation across the Future Internet innovation value chain, creating synergies and cooperation practices among different research and innovation communities related to the Future Internet. To that end, FIREBALL brings together the different constituencies to establish common processes and methodologies and share their assets. FIREBALL explores how the different assets (test-beds, facilities, methods, know-how, applications, users) within these constituencies can be shared and configured to the demands of Smart City showcases.
