#NGI4EU – IoT, Privacy, Trust, Decentralized, Discovery, Search

December 20, 2017 @ 22:00 - December 21, 2017 @ 00:00


Towards a future Internet that better responds to the expectations of the citizens!

„We need the collective vision and engagement of all stakeholders to create the Next Generation Internet. We need to gather and discuss ideas concerning concepts, technologies and applications coming from the largest possible community. We need to work together to build a future Internet that better responds to the expectations of the citizens.“
Bruno Kessler Lecture by Roberto Viola, Director-General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology at the European Commission


NGI Move, @NGI4EU brings you Salons and Meetings all over Europe to promote, exchange and debate the Next Generation Internet movement embodied in the upcoming ICT-24 calls in 2018, 2019 and beyond.

Meet us in Amsterdam!

Wednesday December 20, from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Roundtable with Rob van Kranenburg (NGI Move)and presentations on digital priorities, privacy, trust, search, discovery and decentralized data management as well as Internet of Things.  *RSVP [email protected]* (maxcap 30) 


The Things Network, Rockstart

We are yet again at a critical stage for Europe. With the threat of geopolitical instability coming from several dimensions Europe needs to not just assert its presence on the world stage, but moreover needs to assert its digital sovereignty to further its vision of a single digital market. Europe must become a leader in the co-creation of a Next Generation Internet in a more human centric, societal and economic beneficial ecosystem of researchers, high tech start-ups, industrial and government leaders as well as grassroots communities and individuals.

To gather the most impactful group of constituencies in a community, build a shared vision, inspire policymaking and prototype possible alternatives, a series of Salons and Meetups are launched by the NGI Move project, alongside a set of co-creation workshops and annual NGI awards. The Salons are co-creation and design fiction events aimed at rethinking the Internet assumed functioning (in terms of technology, governance, sustainability) and inspiring novel public as well as private services and products relying on it. Participants are invited to discuss around questioning topics and open challenges and build collaboratively possible future scenarios, defined as ‘moonshot’. A series of Moonshots questions the current status quo and federate stakeholders around the building of viable alternatives.

Working close with the European Commission, NGI Move will distil actionable policy recommendations and stimulate the NGI debate. The vision is to create an NGI that is at the service of people and stimulates business opportunities, centred on European values and competing globally. Our message is pragmatic cybernetics, balancing extreme centralisation and extreme decentralization where data stays with citizens.

This initiative aims at developing a more human-centric Internet supporting values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralisation, inclusiveness and protection of privacy; giving the control back to the users in order to increase trust in the Internet. It should provide more transparent services, more intelligence, greater involvement and participation, leading towards an Internet that is more open, robust and dependable, more interoperable and more supportive of social innovation.

For the ICT-24 call closing in 2018 ‘R&I Actions’ in the following three sub-topics will be called for. Proposals should address only one of these sub-topics. Specifically, the call is designed for 20/80% spilt, where 80% is reserved for sub-granting.

  1. Privacy and trust enhancing technologies: as sensors, objects, devices, AI-based algorithms, etc., are incorporated in our digital environment, develop robust and easy to use technologies to help users increase trust and achieve greater control when sharing their personal data, attributes and information.
  2. Decentralized data governance: leveraging on distributed open hardware and software ecosystems based on blockchains, distributed ledger technology, open data and peer-to-peer technologies. Attention should be paid to ethical, legal and privacy issues, as well as to the concepts of autonomy, data sovereignty and ownership, values and regulations.
  3. Discovery and identification technologies: to search and access large heterogeneous data sources, services, objects and sensors, devices, multi-media content, etc. and which may include aspects of numbering; providing contextual querying, personalised information retrieval and increased quality of experience.
