30/06/2021 - SLICES-RI (Scientific LargeScale Infrastructure for Computing/Communication Experimental Studies) of which SN4I is a part has been admitted to the ESFRI Roadmap 2021
SLICES is a flexible platform designed to support large-scale, experimental research focused on networking protocols, radio technologies, services, data collection, parallel and distributed computing and in particular cloud and edge-based computing architectures and services.
SLICES consortium gathers partners from 15 European countries, all of them having committed to contribute resources and has received the endorsements of key stakeholders and the political supports of 11 European Governments. Several of the current partners are operating facilities that are already on their national and regional RI roadmaps. It is the case for instance for France, Greece, Poland and Norway. The numerous letters of support testify the strong support from the community as well as from industry and member states. SLICES will encourage and foster all the initiatives from the consortium at different levels (European, national, and regional) for the inclusion of SLICES in their respective roadmaps. Discussions and negotiations have already started in several countries involved in the SLICES with their respective ministries.
SN4I is a proposing to focused to apply all these technologies to Manufacturing, in particular Industry 4.0 and beyond.
