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 funding opportunities that started in April 2018 with ICT-24, ICT-31 and continuing into FP9.
This 1-day workshop was about unlocking 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 NGI calls that closed 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.
The dedicated channel on the Consultation Platform helped raise awareness of the opportunities for Research and Education; Start-ups and Culture to start creating momentum before the event: https://consultation.ngi.eu/taxonomy/term/116. To post on the channel you need to go through a quick registration process here: https://consultation.ngi.eu/user/register.
This workshop brought together innovative start-ups, SMEs and academic and research institutions working on or interested in NGI-related technologies like blockchain, decentralised data governance, privacy and security, artificial intelligence, as well as 5G, cyber security and IoT.
→ Practical, insightful guides on NGI funding opportunities, including open calls.
→ Project idea pitches and opportunity to find new collaborations.
→ New career opportunities that NGI can help unlock, through collaborative research programmes and more.
→ Connections with our European Champions Panel for tips and views on priority research and innovations.
→ Initial launch of the NGI Early Adopters Club, helping others ease their way into a pan-European community and showcase their innovative solutions and NGI-related best practices.
