Welcome to the FIDS (Future Internet Documentation Space)

Since 2008, INTEROP-VLab has been chosen by the European Commission to be the official repository of EI (Enterprise Interoperability) public deliverables, from the 5th, 6th and 7th Framework programme. In the frame of the partnership with the UNITE project, the repository of deliverables has been extended to other topics of the Future Internet, such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Services (IoS).

 The FIDS is  a high-level quality repository of research documentation in free access. The objective of this initiative is to enable access to state of the art research in Enterprise Interoperability (EI) and Enterprise Software Applications (ESA) research areas, and in the federated theme of “Future of the Internet”, i.e. Internet of Services (IoS), Internet of Things (IoT), and the other areas from the Future of Internet (oFI) gathered in a single sub-domain.

The FIDS is a live virtual space that will be continuously updated with new documentation. For the moment, the documentation is classified by research domains and accessible via hyperlinks in the tables below :


FInES (Future Internet Enterprise Systems) documentation


Future Internet Enterprise Systems (FInES) has emerged as a field of activity that aims at enabling enterprises, including SMEs, by means of ICT, to exploit the full potential of the Future Internet. The FInES vision and research objectives are defined in its Position Paper: “The full potential of the Future Internet is accessible to, relevant for, and put to use by European enterprises including SMEs. The Internet thus becomes a universal business system on which new values can be created by competing as well as collaborating enterprises – incumbent as well as new – through innovation in a level playing field, with sustainable positive benefits for the economy, society and the environment”.

IoT (Internet of Things) documentation

The Internet of Things refers to the general idea of things, including everyday objects, which are readable, recognisable, locatable, addressable and/or controllable via the Internet. Communications in the Internet of Things can be ‘thing-to-person’ communications or ‘thing-to-thing’ communications (source:
