NESSI is the European Technology Platform (ETP) dedicated to Software and Services. NESSI provides input to the EU Institutions on research actions and technology matters of particular importance to the software domain, and the overall aim is to enable the software and services sector help vitalize the great potential of the European economy and society. NESSI gathers partners and members from all over Europe, both from industry and academia, and engages in close dialogue with the European Commission and other stakeholders on several topics of specific relevance to NESSI - such as Horizon2020, Cloud Computing and Big Data.
NESSI takes an active role in addressing future challenges of Europe, by offering research oriented software and services based solutions, while at the same time working for ensuring that enough resources are invested in leading-edge industrial and academic research for innovative technologies in the software and service domain. Europe has to turn its outstanding R&D potential, its infrastructure and its technological environment into successful product development and marketable products in order to maintain its competitive edge.
Europe has to master the innovation cycle for key technologies that will allow people, businesses and governments to succeed and to seize the opportunities of the future. Enterprises in Europe are constantly facing challenges such as structural changes and will have to rely on innovative and advanced software in order to be able to adapt to these changes. It is part of NESSI's vision to play an important part in this process.
