On June 28th and 29th, the RECAP consortium members will be attending Net Futures. Net Futures is an annual European event that brings together Research & Innovation, Market Validation & Living Lab Research, Business Development, Entrepreneurship & Enterprise Strategy and Policy Making professionals. The Net Futures edition in 2017 will serve as a wake-up call for policy makers and technologist alike, for civil society and the young whose future we will influence. It will be the place for deep-dive conversations and learnings right at a time when Europe is at the brink of entering the next industrial revolution: The Net. For more information about Net Futures 2017, please visit the website.

As part of the Net Futures 2017, the CloudWATCH2 project will be hosting a “DG CONNECT Unit E2 Cloud and Software” Concertation meeting on 28th June (9:30 – 13:00). All projects involved will get visibility through a series of break-out sessions chaired by the EC-Clusters which will look at priorities and opportunities for collaboration on technical and standardisation issues. Participants will also hone in on exploitation strategies to showcase best practices on how projects can map technology readiness levels to market readiness levels in line with exploitation plans or plans for commercial viability of project outputs.

The meeting will start with a session on cloud market where the attendees will set the scene for a resilient cloud market and discuss the value of services that lead to greater trust and uptake of cloud. It will continue with the EC clusters break-out sessions and a market and technology readiness levels workshop that will aim to bring together selected EC funded projects that have already compiled a service offering as part of their intended legacy, and will end soon, with SMEs that are looking for innovations that are or soon will be ready to be brought to the market. It will end with a plenary session on cluster priorities & future steps. To view full agenda, please click here
