NGI Zero

NGI Zero is a idea-driven coalition of not-for-profit organisations from across Europe. It was set up to provide the Next Generation Internet initiative with an agile, effective and low-threshold funding mechanism. With funding from the European Commission, NGI0 provides grants to individual researchers and developers as well as small teams to work on important new ideas and technologies that contribute to the establishment of the Next Generation Internet.

Within the Next Generation Internet initiative, NGI Zero coordinates several NGI Research and Innovation Actions. Notably, NGI Zero Review,  NGI Zero Entrust and NGI Zero Core.

In order to be effective at internet scale, the results of these efforts are made available as free/libre/open source software. A significant amount of effort is spent to live up to high standards in terms of security, privacy, accessibility, open source licensing, documentation, etc.
