This is a networking event where policy makers and technologists will meet to have deep dive conversations and learn about each other's wishes and needs for tomorrow's internet, the economy and society.

Conference visual

This year, the theme of Net Futures 2017 will be "Internet, the economy and society in 2027". It will have a focus on future policies that may be needed so that emerging issues can be addressed according to citizen's needs and wishes.

The mid-term review of the Digital Single Market policy priority is an ideal moment to reflect and reformulate the goals Europe should address in entering a period where everything will be connected and every part of society and economy 'internetised'.

The conference sessions will launch debates and reflect about

  • the industrial internet
  •  the need of a free flow of data within Europe
  • about legal ethical and social issues that emerge within a software-defined world
  • the requirements of a Next Generation Internet
  • data protection issues in a world with huge amounts of data
  • mobile connectivity
