Next Generation Internet: A Visual collaboration workshop on EU-US NGI research and innovation

Tuesday, October 20 - 17.00 – 18.00 (EDT) / 21.00 – 22.00 (UCT) / 23.00 - 24.00 (CEST)

Launched in 2016, the Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative aims to shape the development of the Internet of tomorrow into an Internet of Humans that responds to people’s fundamental needs, including trust, security and inclusion, and reflects the European values and norms. At the heart of the initiative is a number of Research and Innovation Actions that are acting as intermediaries, which utilizes 80% of their budget for funding individual open call projects by third-party researchers, developers, hi-tech start-ups/SMEs to advance the work in NGI topics, such as Privacy and Trust enhancing technologies; Decentralized data governance; Discovery and identification technologies; Strengthening internet trustworthiness with electronic identities; Service and data portability; Open Internet architecture renovation, and EU-US collaboration on NGI.

In this session, we are going to focus on giving the opportunity to a number of the third-party projects funded by two of the NGI RIAs, (EU-US collaboration on NGI) and NGI Pointer (Open Internet architecture renovation), and an EU - US initiative funded by NGI Explorers (EU Fellowships to the US), a chance to present their project ideas to the global audience of the 24 hour-long event.
