Practice of interoperability today Research (e.g. DIEM and ARTEMIS projects) Business practices (Handling IPR, Standardisation) Practice of interoperability in the future ICT ecosystems needs Societal aspects (legal, business, ethical) Technical aspects (platform viewpoint, deployment viewpoint) Engineering aspects (interoperability by design, interoperability assurance) Business practices and consensus building (Harvard roadmap) Discussion
