InterInnov in Mexico
The FIWARE Community is getting more and more global everyday, capitalizing the achievements made by partners like InterInnov in its international expansion. However, it is worth mentioning that Mexico is a pioneering region in this sense, whose commitment already started in 2014. Jose Gonzalez, Innovation Manager at InterInnov, recently visited this extraordinary country and had the opportunity to confirm the fact that FIWARE is indeed a reality in Mexico. Along with a couple of initiatives working hard to make this happen, Jose fostered the role of the open platform as a driver for education and entrepreneurship:
- Corporación Universitaria para el Desarrollo de Internet (CUDI) is coordinating a Research and Education Working Group with the goal of identifying needs from research communities to develop innovative FIWARE applications. This group, where Jose participates as expert, will deliver an Input Paper including best practices and recommendations to engage R&E communities in FIWARE.
- Tecnologico de Monterrey organised a workshop at the 2nd International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities where Jose contributed to unleash the potential of the FIWARE platform. Participants were able to gain theoretical and practical skills to develop cloud computing and Internet applications.
