Future Everything and Future Internet

After another excellent Future Everything event back in March we’ve been discussing with our local and international partners what’s on the horizon (literally) as Europe gears up for the most significant shift in its innovation and R&D programmes for 20 years with its new “Horizon 2020″ programme, to be launched ealy next year. As well as partners in the Eurocities network we have been building up our collaboration with the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) and will be hosting the annual Living Labs Summer School here in Manchester at the end of August. In the meantime we are hosting the first ever UK Network of Living Labs meeting (tomorrow) plus joining all of the other Future Internet Smart Cities project partners in Dublin for Future Internet Week. At a local level support continues to flow in for the Go ON Manchester digital inclusion campaign and we have just gone through our April target figure of recruiting 600 digital champions.
