International cooperation on Future Internet: perspectives and roadmap
1102C, 29/09/2010 (14:00-15:30)
The Internet has been designed in the seventies and must undergo important changes in order to be suited to the rapidly increasing number of people, devices, and objects connected to it.
The theme of « the Future Internet » has therefore logically become, in just a few years, a key European focus in the field of Digital innovation. Designing the Internet for the future is however not only a challenge for Europe but for the other regions of the world and international cooperation has thus to be encouraged in order to more efficiently address this global challenge. The aim of the present networking session, jointly organized by the various EU-funded support actions in the area of Future Internet, is to discuss the status and perspectives of international cooperation on Future Internet, and to shape a possible roadmap for it (further discussions to be planned at the next Future Internet Assembly to be held in Ghent in Dec. 2010, possible activities to be envisioned for 2011, recommendations to be provided to the European Commission, etc.).
