Next Generation Internet. A human Internet for a better future.

Next Generation Internet (NGI) is an EU initiative that aims to shape the development of the Internet into an Internet of humans that responds to people’s fundamental needs, including trust, security and inclusion, and reflects the values and the norms that we enjoy in Europe.

The NGI initiative aims to build the key technology blocks of a human-centric Internet, which gives end-users full control of their personal data. Through advanced technologies, new decentralised business and social models will ensure secure and trustworthy access for all. The mission of NGI is to re-imagine and re-engineer the Internet. The information age
should enable human potential, mobility and creativity in an inclusive way – while dealing responsibly with our natural resources.

The NGI comprises an ambitious research and innovation programme with an EC investment of more than €250m between 2018 and 2020. Focus is on advanced technology including privacy and trust, search and discovery, decentralised architectures, blockchain, IoT, social media, interactive technologies, as well as technologies supporting multilingualism and accessibility.
The NGI initiative funds European innovative research projects that make it possible to imagine and develop a new Internet that is safer, more open, more respectful of people and more useful to all citizens. To know more visit www.ngi.eu
