Towards a future Internet: interrelation between technological, social and economic trends, 2008/S 129-170659, Contract notice, Services

Funded under: FP7-ICT


This study is meant to investigate the deep interrelations existing between technological, social and economic trends related to the future Internet: at first, by analysing how the current Internet evolved insofar, its main drivers and effects; then, by discussing the possible technological options and scenarios for its further development and their likely socio-economic impact; finally, by identifying risks/opportunities for Europe. Basing on a solid state of the art, the study should consult the main authorities in the field of Internet developments, both at political and technological level, covering the whole range of different social, political and business positions. Visionary scientists and politicians should be duly identified and interviewed, personally or in ad-hoc events organised in order to stimulate brainstorming and public awareness on this new conceptual approach. A strong web presence is necessary to support the study and create public awareness on the topic.
