FIWARE Lab: Upgrade to Community Account

From FIWARE Forge Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

To request for an account upgrade, FIWARE Lab users need to fill in an Upgrade Account request.


Who can apply?

  • Participants to the FIWARE Accelerator programme
  • Individuals and Companies willing to develop innovative applications based on FIWARE, and to disclose the usage of FIWARE they will make.

How much does it cost?

It's free! We are enacting this restriction to ensure that start-ups and SMEs willing to develop applications and demonstrators using FIWARE have the access to the proper resources.
