EU-Japan FP7 GreenICN project successfully completed with a grade of “EXCELLENT”

After three years of intensive research, the EU-Japan FP7 collaborative research project “GreenICN – Architecture and Applications of Green Information Centric Networking” successfully passed the final review in Tokyo, Japan on the 25th of May, 2016 with a grade of “Excellent”.
