A Community
For a smarter society

Advancing smart society innovation through Open Source technologies and global collaboration

Our Mission

The mission of OiL FIWARE iHub is to bring together actors such as entrepreneurs, companies, universities, research institutions, and the public sector into a collaborative community. The intention is to together exploit the potential of Open Source for a smart, digital, and connected society. The fields we address are such as Smart Cities, Smart Villages, Smart Energy, Smart Water, and Smart Agrifood.

The goals are to facilitate innovation, entrepreneurial development, business success, and better civic services that foster sustainable economic growth in our region. We are convinced that building a strong culture of participation, collaboration and sharing will help us all to achieve those goals.

A smart society with FIWARE

We base our activities on the open sourced FIWARE platform technologies as there are recognized as European standards and are promoted by the European Union. FIWARE as a modular platform allows for the connectivity of a range of sensor data as well as other data sources, and to apply digital services on the platform related to such as Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, and more. We intend to enhance the digitization of our public administrations from regional to city and village levels, promoting the use of smart and future of internet-based technologies.

OiL is recognized as a FIWARE iHub by the FIWARE Foundation. A FIWARE iHub is the center for the adoption of open source FIWARE platform technology for a region. Our designated region is Sweden and the other Scandinavian countries.
