The NGI Forum took place in Barcelona on September 13th, 2017. With more than 160 registered attendees, 92 contributors from 18 different countries, 15 speakers, and three parallel working sessions, the Forum engaged active participants in the Next Generation Internet community from across Europe and beyond. This was a very positive result, as this event was not co-located with any other and many attendees travelled especially for it, the Forum can clearly be considered a great success.
HUB4NGI, a communication and coordination hub serving the whole NGI community, organized the NGI Forum and had a prominent role in leading the different activities. The aim of the NGI Forum was to gather together those prominent actors that through their work and active engagement in various R&D areas are paving the way to design, build and refine the Internet of tomorrow. It was also an opportunity to share knowledge with leading experts from across a variety of disciplines, including privacy and trust technologies, decentralised data governance, discovery and identification, edge intelligence, etc.
During the day, different issues and possible directions were raised and discussed.
