The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme has demonstrated its commitment to fostering innovation and cooperation across the European continent. This time, the spotlight shines on the remarkable achievements of three prominent projects – GreenMov, ODALA, and INTERSTAT – as they joined forces to deploy Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs). Together, they have created a powerful European ecosystem that bridges the gap between public administrations and private companies, making the Digital Single Market a reality. A pivotal player in this collaborative endeavor has been FIWARE, contributing significantly with its FIWARE Context Broker as a core technological implementation for each of these groundbreaking EU projects.
