A message from Neelie Kroes, European Commissioner for the Digital Agenda:

“RFID, the Internet of Things and related technologies will help shape our future. Strategic Governments will manage to invest in the deployment of these technologies whilst we collectively need to reflect on the ethical and other societal concerns that are implied, as well as the values that the Internet of Things will enshrine.”

A message from Neelie Kroes, European Commissioner for the Digital Agenda:

“€50million  have already been invested in the Internet of Things research and development and the first results of this collaborative effort will become visible before the end of 2011. For me there is no doubt that 2011 is the defining year for RFID and the Internet of Things in Europe”

strategic approach
Strategic Approach

The network strategy is to concentrate on two distinct area of priority:

Enabling adoption by providing adequate policytools, including enabling policies and awareness towards decision makers, industry and governments

A programme of activity to raise general awareness of RFID among users, SMEs and the general public

In effect a “push” and “pull” approach

resources to achieve our strategy
Resources to achieve our strategy
  • In order to achieve our strategy, we have developed a series of work packages (WP) broadly based around each key point.
  • One network member is leading each WP, supported by a number of other network members.
management and coordination
Management and Coordination

The network has put a 3-tier management structure in place:

1 A professional external coordinator (WP8) working closely with a

2 Management Board made up of all WP leaders plus 3 GA members advised by a

3 General Assembly representing the views of all network members

deliverables and results
Deliverables and Results
  • Each Work Packages has its own individual set of deliverables and action plan to produce them. These have been listed in the formal annual review.
  • However, a number of overriding actions have now been identified for year 2 of the network as being key to the success of the project and needing coordinated joint activity.
success criteria
Success Criteria

We believe the network can be considered a success if the following have been achieved by the end of Year 2:

200 Members

80 case studies in database

Governments in 10 States active

Work Package 9

  • The main tasks will be to establish details of existing National Government initiatives and support programmes relating to RFID:
    • Establish a communication pack to go to all Governments
    • and Government agencies outlining what RACE
    • networkRFID  is, what it is doing and how we can help
    • Plan  Governmental workshops in the second half of
    • 2010  and at the end of the project at which Governments
    • can give examples of their own Best Practice and get an
    • overview of what is happening in the RFID marketplace
    • generally
    • Develop a framework and a set of deliverables for creating
    • member-state-funded national centres for RFID
  • It is planned that the work of WP9 will commence at the 2010 General Assembly in Frankfurt
