secure and highly dependable information technology infrastructure
continues to increase, it is no longer clear that emerging and future
needs of our society can be met by the current trajectory of incremental
changes to the current Internet......"
- [The European Union - Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE)]: "The FIRE initiative creates an open research environment which facilitates strategic research and development of new Future Internet concepts, giving researchers the tools they need to conduct large-scale experiments on new paradigms."
