THE NEXT GENERATION INTERNET WORKSHOP
WIDEN THE EUROPEAN SPACE OF LIFE AND WORK
The European Commission in collaboration with the Polish National Contact Point, Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center and the HUB4NGI Project organizes a workshop in support of the EC Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative.
The Next Generation Internet, a key priority in H2020 ICT work programme 2018-2020, will ensure a more human-centric Internet supporting European values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralisation, inclusiveness, transparency and protection of privacy. The NGI initiative is a broad and long-term initiative, mostly focusing on new technology areas as for example a better protection for private data, new internet architectures, decentralized data systems and new discovery and identification tools. These technologies, developed by people and for people, will widen our space for life and work in future Europe.
Together with (young) researchers, start-ups, SMEs and social innovators, the European Commission will push the development of these new Internet technologies based on an agile and flexible programme approach to shape the Internet of the future. As a part of the presentation of the Next Generation Internet, NGI workshop will be held in Poznan (Poland) on 8th of June 2017 (11:00h – 15:30h).
The purpose of the workshop is to explore opportunities for research, industry and SMEs/start-ups for collaboration within the scope of the NGI initiative. Renowned speakers, open and multidisciplinary discussions and World-Café tables as the key elements of the workshop agenda will help the attendees to better understand the current situation of the NGI initiative and participate in debates prioritizing and shaping the future evolution of the NGI.
MAIN GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP
- To identify the major opportunities and challenges for society, research and private sectors
