Task 9.8 Collaboration with NESSI-Platform

NESSI is the European Technology Platform dedicated to software and services.

NESSI was launched in 2005 at the initiative of the European Commission and European companies and has grown to a 300+ member organisation dedicated to the shift to a service-oriented economy.

The NESSI mission is to develop a visionary strategy for software and services driven by a common European research agenda, where innovation and business strength are reinforced by:

  • providing European industry and the public sector with efficient services and software infrastructures to improve flexibility, interoperability and quality
  • mastering complex software systems and their provision as service-oriented utilities
  • establishing the technological basis, the strategies and deployment policies to speed up the dynamics of the services eco-system
  • developing novel technologies, strategies and deployment policies that foster openness, through the increased adoption of open standards and open source software, as well as the provision of open services
  • fostering safety, security and the well-being of citizens by means of new societal applications, enhanced efficiency of industry and administrations, and competitive jobs

Links between CoreGRID and Industry have been reinforced by setting up a continuous relationship with the NESSI European Technology Platform.

  1. After a first CoreGRID-NESSI workshop at the beginning of 2006, CoreGRID attended NESSI’s General Assembly in September 2006.  
  2. CoreGRID has actually been involved in the work of providing input to NESSI’s Strategic Research Agenda.
  3. CoreGRID invited NESSI to actively take part in the First CoreGRID Industrial Conference. Mike Fisher gave an Industrial Keynote at this occasion and NESSI members attended the entire conference.
  4. NESSI and CoreGRID also worked together on FP7 projects’ submissions.
  5. On June 21, 2007 CoreGRID participated to the NESSI Workshop on Service Oriented Infrastructure.
  6. CoreGRID participated to the NESSI General Assembly on December 11-12, 2007 in Brussels.
