With Phase II getting into full force it is a particular honor for us to host the first Phase II face-to-face Architecture Board meeting of the Future Internet Public-Private Partnership.

Important topics were addressed, like the previous SB meeting, the status of the current FI-PPP projects, first architecture discussions, status of FI-PPP capacities, and many more topics related to technical management and coordination.

The FI-PPP is a pioneering endeavor and brings together very different communities and respective stakeholders. A trustworthy partnership is key for the success of such a research program. It is thus the even more delighting to see the very open and constructive spirit that drove the Phase I Architecture Board to be continued seamlessly into Phase II with all the new partners. The meeting provides further support for the well-functioning operation of the FI-PPP AB. Great thank to all the participants.
