The EU-funded project CHANGE ('Enabling innovation in the internet architecture through flexible flow-processing extensions') is working to speed up the introduction of core technologies across the network, and also to enable completely new developments - resulting in a better, more efficient Internet for everyone.

Europe remains a main knowledge production centre of the world, but lags behind North America and Asia in fast-growing technologies of the future. This is a key conclusion of the latest Innovation Union Competitiveness Report published today.
