NGI Forum 2023:
Unlocking the power of Digital Commons

15-16 November, Brussels (Belgium)

The NGI Forum 2023 is the flagship event of the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative. It brings together some of Europe’s top Internet innovators at work to build an Internet of Trust, empowering end-users with more choice and control over their data and digital identity.

The mission of NGI is to re-imagine and re-engineer the Internet. The NGI initiative funds European innovative research projects that make it possible to develop a new Internet that is safer, more open, more respectful of people and more useful to all citizens. Over a bit more than four years in operation, it has built a unique ecosystem of highly talented and value-driven innovators changing the course of the Internet, mostly working on open source (hardware and software). The NGI has supported projects contributing to solutions that are available to users, such as CryptPad, Searx, Mastodon and many more.

Join the 2023 edition of the NGI Forum and connect with policymakers, researchers, innovators, industry representatives, and users. The NGI Forum will dive into the major trends of the future technological transition of the internet, such as digital commons, decentralised social media, digital identity, open-source supply chain security, web search and large language models, quantum internet, etc.

The event will feature keynote speeches, panel discussions, innovators’ presentations and pitches, technical workshops, policy debates, and networking sessions.
