Future networks & services: Developing the future of the Internet through European research

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The Internet has profoundly changed our perception of society and our approach to everyday life. Today with billions of transactions streaming on the web, the Internet has certainly become the most powerful tool to share information.
As DG Information Society and Media, our mission is to increase awareness, not only of the key role of the Internet in commerce and society, but also to face the difficult matter of security and control of such a powerful tool.
Fostering innovation and competitiveness in Europe through excellence in ICT research and development, several world-class research initiatives set out to lead the developments on Future Internet research. While built on technological advances, aspects such as security, governance, an adequate regulatory framework ensuring accessibility for diverse users and the promotion of wider uptake become key success factors.
In this brochure we will explore four essential aspects for the Future of The Internet.
