FORA is a European Training Network (ETN), which will fund and train 15 PhD candidates in the area of Fog Computing, during the period 2017-2021. Fog Computing, also sometimes called Edge Computing, brings the Cloud “closer to the ground”, to the edge of the network. FORA is an interdisciplinary, international, intersectoral network that will train the next generation of researchers in Fog Computing with applicability to industrial automation and manufacturing.
