NIMBLE’s governance model is a federation of platforms for multi-sided B2B trade, with mandatory interoperation between instances of the platform and with optional, added-value business functions that can be provided by third parties.
The software infrastructure
of the NIMBLE platform will be developed as open source software under an Apache-type, permissive license. Therefore, prospective NIMBLE providers will take the project infrastructure, bundle it with sectoral, regional or functional added value services and launch the new platform in the federation.
The consortium that will develop the NIMBLE solution is made up of a good mix of relevant European research and industry organisations, coordinated by Salzburg Research.
