Regional Government promotes first training course for specialists in technologies of the future

The Regional Government, in partnership with NONAGON - São Miguel Science and Technology Park, begins today the first edition of FIWARE technology training in the Region, a platform made available by the European Commission consisting of hardware and software that offers a basis for the development of free access applications. 

This training initiative aims to provide knowledge on FIWARE technologies. It is directed to a team composed of various entities linked to the digital innovation hub created under the FIMAC project, co-funded by the Interreg MAC 2014-2020 programme, with the participation of entities from Madeira, Azores and the Canary Islands. 

The Regional Director for Science and Technology stated that the first edition of this training course "will put the Azores at the forefront of FIWARE technologies." 

"Five regional entities will be certified to provide international training on this technology, namely FRCT (Regional Fund for Science and Technology, NONAGON, School of New Technologies of the Azores (ENTA), and the companies Tetrapi and Custom Project. Last year, both companies won the 2019 edition of the Acceleration Programme developed under the FIMAC project," highlighted Bruno Pacheco. 

The training course will be conducted by HOP Ubiquitous (HOPU), a FIWARE certified company focused on research and development of network protocols, security and the "Internet of Things" solutions. It is primarily intended to create the conditions for the future FiiHUB - Azores DIH to be based at NONAGON. 

The first edition of this 180-year training of specialists in FIWARE technologies taking place in the Azores is structured in four modules: the first dedicated to the FIWARE components and the Orion Context Broker (CEF Context Broker), the second to the FIWARE NGSI Interfaces (open and standard application programming interface), the third to FIWARE data models, and the fourth to the FIWARE Marketplace and its ecosystem. 

One of the main goals of FIWARE is focused on the collaborative development of "smart solutions" and technologies such as "Internet of Things" (IoT), "Cloud Computing" and "Open Data." This platform is composed of a large community of developers in more than a hundred cities and 11 innovation centres, where more than a thousand start-up companies have been created. 

Additionally, FIWARE aims to build an open and sustainable ecosystem based on public software platform standards and leveraged by the implementation of tools that facilitate the development of new smart applications in various sectors, such as smart cities, telehealth, e-Learning, energy, environment, transport, agriculture, media or logistics.
