The purpose of this study is to identify the main actors in all sectors and the processes related to the training and dissemination of the new protocol IPv6 and provide mechanisms, incentives and best practices that can help in deploying this new technology efficiently and timely. The results of this study should provide clear recommendations that can be applied in training organisations, public and private, such as higher education and vocational training institutions. Based on the analysis of the study, concrete suggestions should be derived for actions at governmental level of the EU Member States. The study should build on expertise developed in previous research projects and support actions funded under the EC Framework Programmes to support IPv6; for example under GÉANT and the NRENs (National Research and Education Networks).
