Innovators and researchers are the stars of the Next Generation Internet, but their ideas and projects would never become reality without proper financial support and effective business guidance.
At the core of the NGI initiative, groups of dedicated experts evaluate the potential in projects and people - they select who gets funding, they provide technical and business advice and they coordinate within and between projects, so that together we can build a better Internet.
The unsung heroes of NGI are the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Actions (RIAs), grouping Internet experts from all over Europe: LEDGER, NGI Trust and NGI Zero, focusing respectively on decentralised data governance, privacy, and search and discovery. These projects gather highly knowledgeable individuals who train their efforts in spotting bright ideas and making them shine. This is just the start: more RIAS are in the pipeline and will cover complementary topics.
