  • supporting values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralisation, inclusiveness and protection of privacy;
  • giving the control back to the users in order to increase trust in the Internet
  • should provide more transparent services, more intelligence, greater involvement and participation
  • leading towards an Internet that is more open, robust and dependable, more interoperable and more supportive of social innovation
  • involving today‚Äôs best Internet innovators
  • to address technological opportunities arising from cross-links and advances in various research fields
  • to include validation and testing of market traction with minimum viable products & services, of new economic, mobility and social models
  • to involves users and market actors at an early stage

The 3 specific 'R&I Actions' are targeted on beneficiaries who should make explicit the intervention logic for their specific research domain, their capacity to attract top Internet talents, to deliver a solid value-adding services package to the third party projects as well as their expertise and capacity in managing the full life-cycle of the open calls transparently. This process will be supported by 3 CSAs. Multi-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.

ICT-31-2018: EU-US collaboration on NGI

Building upon the EU-US collaboration in previous work programmes in the area of research experimentation, the aim is

  • to reinforce cooperation and strategic partnerships in the area of Next Generation Internet
  • to establish a continuous dialogue among the key actors in the US and European programmes

Proposals shall foresee twinning with entities participating in projects funded by the US to exchange knowledge and experience and exploit synergies.

CSA 1) should organise workshops and other support activities to facilitate the coordination of research and innovation initiatives in the EU and US, and to promote collaboration between the research groups while creating a Next Generation Internet open ecosystem engaging relevant initiatives and key actors from the EU and the US.

CSA 2) should support 3 to 6 months fellowships for Internet researchers notably from hi-tech startups, SMEs, mid-caps, research centres or academia to broaden the understanding of different approaches, perspectives and values, in view to then contribute to concrete NGI services and products 'Made in Europe'. The project will only provide financial support for travel and subsistence, and only citizens of the EU and associated countries will be eligible for funding.
