Socio-Economic SERVices for European research projects

Project description

Network of the Future

The Internet has evolved from the largely static Information Super Highway of the 90's to a critical infrastructure supporting all aspects of life in the 21st Century. The European Commission (EC) is making significant investment in Future Internet research with the aim of ensuring European competitiveness in the face of globalization and emerging societal challenges. It is critical to ensure that the investment in ICT research contributes effectively to European sustainability and welfare.The SESERV Support Action provides an approach for coordinating selected areas in socio-economics of a.o. FP7 projects to offer access to both socio-economic and technical experts in an integrated manner, while investigating the relationship between Future Internet technology, society and the economy. It is SESERV's goal to maximize the impact of research by raising the awareness of socio-economic trends in the areas of incentives, accounting, Digital Europe, and risk management, and by addressing possible policy priorities within the research community across key dimensions of convergence for information technology, telecommunications, and media.
