Digital Around the World

Digital Around The World event addressing EU-US Internet collaboration, through an NGI Think Tank, involving major stakeholders from both sides of the Atlantic.

Future of Internet: the EU/US Next Generation of Internet Initiatives

20 October 2020 | 8 pm – 9 pm CET

In our global context, the Next Generation Internet, an initiative launched by the European Commission back in 2016, will be successful only if a worldwide consensus is found, enabling a Human-centric Internet. To that end, collaboration between the EU and the US is essential, both areas being strongly committed to develop the future of Internet and to shape a sustainable landscape for NGI developments.

Indeed, the NGI initiative should design specific actions for policy collaboration, shared technology development and interaction between user-communities, with other initiatives in the world where parts of the NGI infrastructure are designed and deployed; and the US are one of the main places where such activities are held.

Think NEXUS – Think tank for the collaboration on NEXt generation internet between EU-US – is a European Commission (Horizon 2020 research program) project that aims to reinforce EU-US collaboration, through its dedicated Think Tank, involving major stakeholders from both sides of the Atlantic on Next Generation Internet related thematic in three focus areas: Science & Technologies; Innovation & Entrepreneurship; Policy.

This 1-hour session will be dedicated to further advancing EU-US talks around technologies & policies’ priorities for cooperation.
