    RESHAPING THE INTERNET THROUGH COLLECTIVE AND NETWORKED INTELLIGENCE

    The Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative brings together some of Europe’s top internet innovators, researchers and policymakers, who are shaping the internet of tomorrow. The NGI Forum is the flagship annual event presented by the Next Generation Internet initiative. It is an opportunity to share knowledge with leading experts from a variety of disciplines. In particular, NGI focus areas include:

    • privacy and trust enhancing technologies
    • electronic identities to strengthen trustworthiness
    • decentralised data governance
    • service and data portability
    • discovery and identification technologies
    • protocols and open source software and hardware to manage the internet

Join us at the NGI Forum 2019 this September in Helsinki, Finland, to discuss the important NGI issues around technology, policy and building a human-centric internet for the future. The event will include a mix of specialist talks, open discussions and interactive working groups.
