Review: FINESCE Open Day Trial Site Ireland22.9.2014, Portlaoise, Ireland
At the Open Day at the ESB Training Centre in Portlaoise, Ireland, SMEs and entrepreneurs interested in the FIWARE Accelerator Programme got informed about the upcoming open calls and the opportunities of collaborating with the FINESCE trial site.
FINESCE is organising six Open Days at the trial sites across Europe to offer interested parties an insight into what has been accomplished in FINESCE in the last one and a half years.
On the 22nd of September, the FINESCE partners in charge of the Ireland trial site invited local and European SMEs to their training centre in Portlaoise to inform themselves and get to know the FINESCE team as well as representatives from the FIWARE Accelerator Programme. At the Trial Site in Ireland, FINESCE is conducting two individual trials focusing on E-Car integration & Smart Grid Communications.
Much of the focus of this third FINESCE Open Day was on the FIWARE Acclerator Programme. The European Commission is funding the development of innovative internet applications and services based on FIWARE technology with 80 million Euros. SMEs and web-entrepreneurs can apply for funding through the open calls of the 16 accelerator projects, five of which a supporting innovations in the energy area. Alexander von Jagwitz (B.A.U.M. Consult) gave the participants a short introduction into this programme as well as a general idea of what FIWARE is all about.
Fiona Williams (Ericsson) continued to present the work of the other FINESCE trial sites, this time with a focus on Horsens. At the Horsens Trial Site, 20 family homes in the village of Stenderup have been equipped with the newest ICT and energy technology. Furthermore, as FINESCE project coordinator, she encouraged the present SMEs and young entrepreneurs to get in contact with the representatives from the FINESCE trial sites to receive support in applying for funding in the FIWARE Accelerator Programme. Participants of the Open Day were also able to meet Adrian Ferrero from INCENSe, one of the FIWARE accelerators supporting innovations in the energy area. INCENSe will launch their first open call on the 15th of October, 2014.
Before heading back to Dublin, the participants had the opportunity to visit the Training substation for a demonstration of the electric vehicle charging optimization system.
