Next Generation Internet (NGI) - To what extent is it possible to create awareness of problems of sustainability and put collective solutions in place? The Internet of the future should provide better services, more intelligence, greater involvement and participation. It needs to reflect European social and ethical values: ie freedom, openness and more interoperability. What does it take to make this happen?
