Let’s Speak… NGI – Next Generation Internet – Business, Career & Funding Opportunities, while developing a human-centric internet
A 1-day workshop, 27 March 2018
Purpose & Scope
NGI – Next Generation Internet is offering organisations, researchers and entrepreneurs across Europe a formidable chance: To build a Human Internet for a better future. This is a long-term goal, with opportunities already being available now, including European-funded calls with an April 2018 deadline (ICT-24, ICT-31).
This 1-day workshop aims to unlock business, career, and funding opportunities for representatives from business, academia, and regulators, discussing social challenges and technical insights about the solutions that could be taken forward in the European calls for proposals, also as part of the so-called “smaller grants” envisaged by the currently open NGI calls closing in April 2018. NGI Champions (ECP, European Champions Panel) and Early Adopters will participate to debate and will continue to interact on the NGI open Consultation Platform available online at www.consultation.ngi.eu.
We have set up a dedicated channel on the Consultation Platform where you can already raise awareness of the opportunities for Research and Education; Start-ups and Culture to create momentum before the event: https://consultation.ngi.eu/taxonomy/term/116.
