On 7-8th March in Brussels; ANSWARE TECHNOLOGIES together with CENTIC have been actively participating to the Thought Leadership Workshop organized by NESSI the European Technological Platform for Software & Services. The goal of the workshop was to identify the future trends of Software & Services for Europe. This work helps at building the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) of NESSI that provides the European Commission with recommendations towards ICT Work Programme of the Horizon 2020 and beyond H2020, focussing on the key role that generic software engineering principles, techniques and tools will play. It argues for key software engineering challenges to be addressed by research and innovation actions towards realizing a Software Continuum. To avoid replicating investments and research effort, NESSI advocates setting up centralized activities on generic software engineering principles, techniques and tools, which may feed complementary more domain specific activities.
