NGI Sargasso

NGI Sargasso focuses on catalysing European collaboration with the US and Canada on topics such as trust and data sovereignty, digital identity, internet architecture renovation, decentralised technologies, and standards, which are of utmost importance to shape the future Internet.

The project will work in close cooperation with the US and Canada on the development and experimentation of new ideas, implementation of prototypes, and contribution to standards and open-source communities on technology trends with the potential to reshape tomorrow’s NGI technologies and services. This transatlantic collaboration is a fundamental factor to nourish a future of synergetic evolution across countries of technology and standards that intrinsically improve society.
