eProsima has partnership agreements with different companies and universities. We develop joint projects with our partners, and we distribute their products.
KIARA is a new middleware project for the internet of the future, a subproject of the FI-WARE project (http://www.fi-ware.eu/ ). FI-WARE will deliver a novel service infrastructure, building upon elements (called Generic Enablers) which offer reusable and commonly shared functions making it easier to develop Future Internet Applications in multiple sectors. KIARA will be the middleware component of that infrastructure.
Our partners in this project are the Zurich University for Applied Sciences, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, and the German Center for IT Security, Privacy, and Accountability.
