The European Commission's Directorate General for Information Society and Media has issued a call for tenders for a study on the topic 'Towards a future Internet: interrelation between technological, social and economic trends'. 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, its main drivers and effects; then by discussing the possible technological options and scenarios for its further development and their likely socio-economic impact; and finally, by identifying risks/opportunities for Europe. Based 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.For further information, please contact: European Commission Directorate-General Information Society and Media Attn: Mr Fabrizio Sestini BU25 05/103 B-1049 Brussels Tel. +32 2 299 5260 Fax +32 2 296 8365 E-mail: INFSO-F4-FUTURE-INTERNET@ec.europa.eu To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address: http://ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:170659-2008:TEXT:EN:HTML
