“Future Internet Engineering” is the strategic Polish research project aimed at improving capabilities of the current Internet by proposing more efficient network infrastructure and new set of applications.

The project activities are grouped in four main streams that correspond to: 1) designing, prototyping and testing of the system for Future Internet that is based on novel architecture that explores the concept of virtualization, 2) designing, prototyping and testing selected advanced applications, and 3) designing and building national research network for supporting experimentally driven research in the area of Future Internet, named PL-LAB, (4) transformation of the current IPv4 network into IPv6. The project collects more than 120 researchers from 9 top organizations (research centers and academia) in Poland working in the area of ICT.
