NGI Open Calls: invitation to participate

The Next Generation Internet’s four Open Calls are still accepting submissions. Two of the NGI open calls – NGI Trust and Ledger – will close at the end of April, while the two NGI Zero calls close on 1 June 2019. Don’t miss your chance to participate and be part of the NGI internet innovator ecosystem!

One of the best ways to find out more about the NGI Open Calls is via our ongoing series of webinars. These live online sessions are free to participate in. The webinars provide instructions on how to apply to the open calls, technical information and a Q&A session. The NGI webinars are all recorded and hosted here on NGI.EU so you can watch or re-watch them at any time.

Recently the NGI hosted three National webinars in Spanish, Italian and English. These sessions covered the ins and outs of the NGI Open Calls. Ledger has so far hosted two webinars specific to its open call, and a third one is scheduled for Tuesday 23 April. And NGI Trust held a webinar about its open call this week.
