nem-web-logo1The NEM Summit, organised every year since 2008 by the NEM Initiative in close cooperation with leading industrial and academic players worldwide, is the “not-to-be-missed” annual event for all those interested in Future Internet developments and in the fast paced evolution of the networked and electronic media industry.

The presentation of E-Space was during the “Expression of Interest” session during the NEM General Assembly. This session provides an opportunity to introduce to the entire NEM community relevant activities and collaboration opportunities. Prior registration is mandatory and a selection is made by the organisers.

The presentation given by partner IN2 introduced the Europeana Space project, giving some details on the Dance Pilot and stressing the various ways in which it is possible to collaborate with the best practice network. Finally an invitation to attend the first E-Space conference in Venice was made. Flyers about the conference were made available. The presentation followed the speech of James Morley from Europeana, complementing it nicely.

The event was attended by EC representatives (DG Connect), researchers, industry, broadcasters, SMEs and creative industry, SME cluster representatives, venture capital firms and business angels.
