High-Level Expert Webinar: Digital Commons and Digital Sovereignty

"Digital Commons are among the core assets to pursue Europe’s Digital Sovereignty. Several initiatives and calls for actions are gaining traction, striving to bring real benefits to individuals and organisations by ensuring open, inclusive and decentralised access to digital resources in line with the core principles and action of the Next Generation Internet (NGI) Initiative. However, in order to ensure that such approaches can grow and become viable alternatives over the current concentration of Internet resources, it is crucial to pull resources. Therefore, policymakers, regulators, public authorities and all other relevant players in the internet arena must converge to define collaboration policies and targeted institutional and financial plans to guarantee interoperability and community governance." is organising a webinar on 31st of January 2023 with the following objectives:

  • Discuss priorities for Europe to support an open, free, global, interoperable, reliable, and secure Internet.
  • Explore the latest evolution of Digital Commons initiatives and relevant European policy-driven efforts.
  • Discuss the role of the Next Generation Internet initiative as a way to foster Digital Commons and European Digital Sovereignty.
  • Increase collaboration among all European players at work on Digital Commons.
