Awareness raising event on the Future Internet PPP

Ref.: INFSO.D/F/MC/LRR D(2010) 205950 

 

In the context of the preparation of the next research work programme related to the ICT theme, DG INFSO of the European Commission organises an open  "awareness raising" event on the Future Internet Public-Private-Partnership (PPP). This will take place in Nice on 12 March 2010 (1). This open event aims at raising awareness among all interested stakeholders about the concepts, focus, structure and implementation plans of the Public-Private-Partnership. It is also a unique opportunity for contributing your views on how such partnerships will transform the Internet to support applications of important social value.

 

The European Commission underlined the importance of building a Future Internet Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) and committed to kick-start this initiative already in 2010 by allocating a total of 300 million euros under FP7 ICT Theme until 2013, as stated at the communication COM(2009) 479 final, see:
