Expected Impact

The project is expected to have the following impacts:

  • Increase European understanding of the publish-subscribe architecture and its possibilities.

  • Affect the standardization of the future Internet and give Europe a possibility to influence its direction.

  • Lead to better information and communication technology (ICT) based services for education, business, care of the sick and elderly, and leisure, for the European people.

  • Give European telecom vendors and telcos a head-start in providing products and services for the future Internet.

  • Allow small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) a chance to enter the future Internet market as a result of PSIRP’s published results and open source implementations.

In light of the ever increasing importance of ICT in all areas of society and the role of the Internet as the central component of ICT, it is vital for Europe to be actively involved in creating the future Internet. This will give Europe an opportunity to influence the design that will affect the lives of every person in the world. It will also give European companies a good starting position to offer products and services of the future.
