Digital Innovation Networks Forum

27 Jun 2017

Brussels, Belgium

Digital Innovation Network Forum will be hel on 27 June, in Brussels, Belgium. The event is organised in the framework of wider consultation programes from the Future Internet Reserach & Experimentation (FIRE) Study and the HUB4NGI support actions, whose results will inform the European Commission's Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative.

The aim of the Forum is to contribute to the creation of a strongly connected pan-European ecosystem that collectively understands what is needed to build digital innovation networks for the NGI, and how they can operate to address the major challenges for society as a result of progressive digitisation and the evolution of the Internet. Internet researchers, innovators, small and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups, Internet technology providers, policy makers, and investors will share their views on the opportunities and concerns raised by the NGI, through presentations, debates, and interactive round tables. 

The programme of the event will feature three sessions on: key challenges for NGI; socioeconomic challenges and opprtunities for a more human Internet considering progressive digitisation; and changes needed as a consequence of the identified challenges and opportunities.
