Please read these before answering the questionnaire.
DG Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) is launching a public survey on Net Innovation. This survey is related to the definition of the new Work Programme 2016-2017 for Horizon 2020. To prepare the new Work Programme, the Commission is updating its vision for the Net Innovation area, identifying key technological challenges and research priorities, and establishing a research and innovation agenda for the coming years. The questionnaire is aimed at gathering the opinions of all interested in Net Innovation topics that are to be covered under the 2016-2017 Work Programme.
Net Innovation supports research, innovation and policy initiatives in order to accelerate new forms of Internet-based innovation throughout Europe. This is not mainly about pure technological developments on networks, software or devices. The focus is rather on the integration and adaptation of new internet technologies and their application at large by people, businesses, and the public sector. At present, Net Innovation supports actions in the areas of the Future Internet Public-Private Partnership, Collective Awareness Platforms, Web Entrepreneurship and Digital Business Innovation. In future, the support to some of these areas might be stopped, and new areas may be supported.
All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from innovators and entrepreneurs, civil society organisations, research institutions, business, policy makers, higher education institutions, and public authorities.
From 12 August 2014 to 10 October 2014.
