About the NGI consultation

Europe is a major actor on the internet with 615 million internet users. The European Union is the world's single largest online market. Europe is also home to many internet companies and many of these are scaling up fast. Europe is strong in social innovation and is at the forefront of digitising its public sector. European values should influence the next generation internet. 

To help shape the next generation internet around these values, we have created an online space, open to everyone: the NGI Consultation Platform. 

Researchers, hi-tech start-ups and SMEs, Industry 4.0, social innovators and citizens are all invited to join conservations or launch discussions on topics of interest to them.

You can share background documents, additional information and other material to ensure the conversation is open, dynamic and human-centric.  

You can discover insights from a European Champions Panel, covering a variety of topics on the next generation internet.

You can post your views and share your expertise on thematic priorities for European initiatives 2018-2020, spanning EU values of privacy, data protection, transparency and trust, core technology advances and social innovations.
