The central scope of NGIatlantic.eu is to bridge EU-US research on Next Generation Internet
From January 2020 through June 2022, NGIatlantic.eu will push the Next Generation Internet a step further by funding EU-based researchers and innovators in carrying out Next Generation Internet related experiments, in collaboration with US research teams.
Thanks to NGIatlantic.eu’s funding for open calls dedicated to EU-US teams working together on NGI experiments, it is expected that the EU-US collaborations will move from workshops mode to a significant increase in the transatlantic cooperation activities that have either already started in the FIRE, ICE-T and NGI programmes or new ones that will receive significant acceleration from the Open Calls provided in NGIatlantic.eu.
