MIT expert workshop
Later this month MIT are kindly hosting our second expert workshop. Twenty invited participants from across the Americas will be analysing future Internet trends and technology based on the draft scenarios we are developing around Europe’s future Internet needs.
Many thanks to Karen Sollins and Sue Perez for facilitating, and to all of our participants for sharing their expertise. It’s exciting to be running this Future Internet event at one of the birthplaces of the ARPANET.
You can read a draft report on our first expert workshop, held last September in Brussels with a similar number of European experts. In May we will be holding our third and final expert workshop in Tokyo.
