Government of India (GoI) initiatives towards developing 100 smart cities triggered enormous interest as it opened up vast opportunities to connect, collaborate and co-create a new landscape of living. To many of us, ‘smart’ refers the deployment of massively integrated ICTs & intelligent systems creating huge capacity to enhance quality of human life. We recognize the ‘FIWARE’ repository of API ́s and already existing applications portfolio have great potential in feeding to not only accomplish smart cities objectives but also fostering of innovation and creation of economic opportunities. It is our understanding that the Smart Cities Lab India invites all interested stakeholders from students’ community, academics and professionals world to join hands and spread the FIWARE platform to the advantage of a new ‘smart’ living. We are committed to expand the group and promote FIWARE by working closely with corporates, start-ups incubated within Institutions of higher learning (IITs/IIMs), and college students via workshops, internships, lab and competitive schemes.

My significant interest in this initiative is twofold – as coordinator of the EU-INDIA FI-MEDIA project, whose main aim is to establish partnerships between EU and India, and also an advocate of the EU’s FIWARE program spread into international countries, including India. We have already successfully established two Cluster2Cluster partnerships: 1st Smart Villages Ecosystems, and 2nd bringing EU’s FIWARE program to India, in areas related to Smart cities. The Smart Cities Lab India initiative seems to be a natural platform to take this work forward in a more commercial setting.
