realXtend in EU Future Internet initiative – 80M funding for application dev

Base technologies from realXtend, including the WebTundra HTML5 client, the Tundra server, and geographical information servers (POI, GIS), are now included in EU’s catalog of so-called generic enablers for future internet application development. Today, the EU FI initiative is launching an open call for app developers: a whopping >80M euros is there for startup businesses.

The launch for that app / web service dev funding is at the ECFI event in Munich, from Tue to Thu, and I’ll be demoing WebTundra and giving introductory workshops etc. there. There’s also a round of bootcamps coming around Europe in the coming weeks where our folks from Adminotech, Cyberlightning, Playsign and our German partners from DFKI will be coaching our 3d Web and related backend service tools.

For more info see the funding call at ECFI and WebTundra and other entries in the FIWARE catalog. Let’s start making good use of the technologies which are nice and mature now, largely thanks to WebGL and other browser efforts during the past years and the three.js graphics library — the time is now, with plenty of money available to help get started!
