Taking someone else’s place is never easy, especially when you are the project manager of a big H2020 EU project like AGILE (www.agile-iot.eu). However, despite all the difficulties and obstacles, and I would like to use this opportunity to thank all the exceptional people that are part of a great consortium (the researchers, developers, biz guys, who I now call friends), I can say that WE did it very well! To be clear, I was already aware of that, but to read the conclusion of the official final review from the EU Commission which says “Project has delivered exceptional results with significant immediate or potential impact” is priceless!!!
So now you are probably wondering what’s next, right? As I mentioned earlier, it’s time to say goodbye to AGILE ☹
This amazing project has run its course, as it happens to all EU projects. But (now you know that) AGILE is not just another EU project. This is one more thing that makes it unique. AGILE is not dead! It has simply changed its name into ECLIPSE AGAIL. From now on, it will be fully Open Source and hosted by the Eclipse IoT Working group.
Long live ECLIPSE AGAIL!
