Join the Next Generation Internet Initiative


Contribute to the success of the future internet by joining and supporting the NGI ecosystem in the following ways:

Open Calls

An Open Call (cascaded funding) scheme allows a part of the budget to be set aside by the consortium for third parties, entities that are not part of the consortium, through an Open Call for proposals or as a prize for a contest (inducement prize). Here, “Open” means “open to the public”: any entity fulfilling each call’s rules can apply.

This scheme allows direct support to individual organisations (a research team, a startup, etc.). It does not require a consortium of at least three partners. It is a more agile and dynamic process that can be implemented in small projects with short research cycles, which is better fit to Internet research.
