Come and explore the largest federation of experimentation and testing facilities in the domain of NGI (Next Generation Internet) at the upcoming 8th Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conference (FEC). FEC8 will take place mid October 2020.

The FEC8 agenda will include technical presentations, tutorials, showcase unique features of the Fed4FIRE+ facilities and information on the Fed4FIRE+ Open Calls.

Through the Fed4FIRE+ project you, as a researcher or experimenter, can access for free (Open Access) or even get funded to access (through the Open Calls) the largest federation worldwide of Next Generation Internet (NGI) facilities for experimentation. The facilities which you, as SMEs, industry or academia, can use for experimentation, support a wide variety of different technologies, serving a broad range of research and innovation communities and initiatives in Europe, in a reliable and trustworthy way.

The Fed4FIRE+ community is at work running and continuously improving this federation of facilities, supporting and offering experimental testbeds based on technologies ranging from wireless, wired, cloud services and open flow, and making them accessible through common frameworks. In addition to infrastructure tools, developers can access a broad range of experimenter communities covering a wide variety of Internet infrastructures, services and applications. This is a real opportunity to focus on different core testbed activities.

Through the federation of these infrastructures – one single place to identify and execute technical tests – innovative experiments are made possible; a groundbreaking novelty! The federation also builds on Fed4FIRE’s existing community of experimenters, testbeds and tool developers and brings them together regularly in Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conferences (FEC) for maximal interaction between the different stakeholders involved.

Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conferences are organised twice a year with a mix of plenary and parallel sessions. The sessions consist of talks, tutorials and technical discussions and there is also a demo fair session with experiments running on the federated testbeds, a large part of which also receive financial support. This is a great opportunity for researchers and developers, to exchange experiences and inspire each other.



  • Learn about accessing the Fed4FIRE+ testbeds.
  • Set up and run your experiment under the guidance of testbed owners and experts.
  • Gain access to the resources for free or even with financial support.
  • Experience live experiments with user stories from successful experiments financially supported through the Open Calls of the Fed4FIRE+ project.
  • Identify new funding mechanisms in up-coming Open Calls.



Internet Researchers and Innovators, Testbed providers, SMEs, Start-ups, Internet technology providers.
