FIWARE Space, un iHUB con estrella

Para cumplir mejor sus propósitos fundacionales, la FIWARE Foundation apoya la creación y la actividad de centros tecnológicos en todo el mundo que se dediquen a la promoción, formación y al uso de tecnologías innovadoras, acciones que por supuesto deben servir para generar nuevos estímulos al crecimiento de empresas y nuevos negocios a nivel local, y para ello creó el programa FIWARE iHubs.

Pero ¿qué es un FIWARE iHub? Pues FIWARE Space de la Diputación de Badajoz es un iHUB, o lo que es lo mismo, un centro de adopción de la tecnología FIWARE, enfocado al ecosistema de negocio, educación e innovación de un área concreta, que en nuestro caso es la provincia de Badajoz.

IHUB FIWARE SPACE

En nuestro centro de Badajoz ofrecemos y facilitamos el acceso de empresas y emprendedores locales a un mercado global, haciendo especial hincapié en la mejora de la competitividad a través de la tecnología y la diversificación de la actividad económica.

Al igual que el de Badajoz, cada uno de los iHubs de la red FIWARE llevan a cabo una serie de actividades para instruir, educar, ayudar y asesorar a las Pymes, StartUps y empresas de su radio de acción. Las actividades se centran principalmente en la promoción de FIWARE a través de eventos, la involucración de la comunidad tecnológica y empresarial local, así como la creación de conexiones entre universidades, empresas, instituciones y gobierno, ofreciendo soporte técnico, consultoría, entrenamiento, capacitación, pruebas y certificación en tecnologías FIWARE.

Cada uno de los iHubs tiene una determinada clasificación en base a los servicios que brinda, su nivel de desarrollo y los servicios que ofrecen. Es por eso que existen iHubs de una, dos y tres estrellas. Además, se establecen iHubs de nivel básico para aquellos que acaban de empezar la actividad, y otros en proceso de incubación, que son los se encuentran en proceso de valoración o pendientes de ser incluidos dentro del programa.

Los iHUBS FIWARE son ya una red que permite crear nuevas conexiones entre empresas, emprendedores e instituciones para compartir conocimiento y experiencias, trabajando así desde lo local en la transformación digital de la sociedad global.

FIWARE Space es un iHUB de una estrella por el que ya han pasado múltiples equipos de investigación, empresas y emprendedores, responsables públicos y ciudadanos de todas las edades y condiciones, con interés por estas nuevas tecnologías, lo que nos anima a seguir trabajando en la mejora y ampliación de nuestros servicios y oferta formativa para poder aspirar a ser pronto uno de los pocos centros FIWARE con dos estrellas de España.

FIWARE SPACE

 

FIWARE Space is the innovation center of the Provincial Council of Badajoz to bring the new technologies of IoT and Big Data to citizens, SMEs and start-ups. It has applied to be considered as a Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) in Badajoz province to promote the digitization and transformation of companies through technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and artificial intelligence with FIWARE as data connector from different sources.

This center is part of a global project called “Badajoz Es Más“, which aims to develop municipalities with a better quality of life through sustainable development. The objective is clear: to turn the province of Badajoz into an Intelligent Territory or a “Smart Province”. In order to achieve this goal, it is a must to involve the local companies, the public administration and the citizens.

FIWARE Space coordinates the activity related to the knowledge, use and possibilities offered by the Provincial Platform for Smart Management of Public Services, which allows the integration of information from different smart services in one place, to facilitate the analysis and management of services that are the responsibility of the Provincial Council of Badajoz. This platform uses the latest technologies promoted by the European Commission about how to integrate near real-time data and how to manage context information.

FIWARE Space is a non-profit innovation center that aims to make the technological knowledge and tools of the “Badajoz Es Más” project available to different entities, among which are:

 

– Public administrations
– Municipalities
– Small and medium enterprises

One of the main goals of this center is to support our small and medium enterprises through the digital transformation of the province. For this, the center offers to these entities de following services.

 

SERVICES

– A 2-month mentoring program to go deeper in the technology knowledge and the opportunities that are behind the intelligent province development, to know first-hand the technological work that is being carried out and how to take advantages of this digital transformation. In these 2 months, the company will adapt its solution or service to a FIWARE smart solution, thus being compatible with the platform used by the Badajoz Provincial council that connects all the data sources of the province, and with any other smart city platform that uses this technology.

– Specialized consulting and technical support for the integration of solutions in FIWARE. We help the creation and adaptation of data models, architecture knowledge and the possibilities of integrating into this European standard.
