An NGI Move Salon: What’s next for the Internet (of Things)

November 10, 2017 @ 18:00 - 20:00

An NGI Move Salon.
Salon Nr 1: What’s next for the Internet (of Things)

Where is the Internet heading? What are the strengths and the weaknesses of its present form, and what are the likely/possible/ideal next steps and directions of its development?

We are delighted to bring to you Rob van Kranenburg of NGI Move, who was one of the first people ever to use the term “the Internet of Things”, and who has recently started to run a series of “NGI Move Salons” around Europe, aimed at (i) rethinking the functioning and the potentials of the Internet (in terms of technology, governance, sustainability), and (ii) inspiring novel public, as well as private services & products relying on the next generation Internet.

The event is organized by early-stage hardware and IoT focused startup investor SmartWare.tech, and will feature a panel discussion among:

  • Rob van Kranenburg of NGI Move (NGI standing for “Next Generation Internet”)
  • Ákos Maróy, CEO at Aero Glass 
  • Péter Langmár, partner at SmartWare.tech and CEO at Lab.Coop
  • Moderator: Barnabás Málnay, partner at SmartWare.tech and business developer at EIT Digital.

About 20 people joined the meeting. After a general intro on IoT and the speed and scope of the digital transition we focused on the model and topics of ICT 24. General agreement that cascading funds is a good model, also general ‘worry’ that purely professional process organizations without a vision would be able to occupy the 20% spaces. Thus, it is important, it was noted from the Latvian and Berlin side that some granularity and reflection is necessary patched on Funding Box or other type of incubator organizations.

Also raised: the perceived optimism around NGI able to not only defensively (GDPR) look at privacy for example but come up with radical new models to look at trust.

Individual Meetings make connections to potential consortium members for „ICT-24-2018-2019: Next Generation Internet – An Open Internet Initiative”
