Future Internet PPP

future internet ppp

With over a billion users world-wide, the Internet is one of history’s great success stories. Its global, integrated communications infrastructures and service platforms underpin the fabric of the European economy and society. Yet today’s Internet was designed in the 1970s, for purposes that bear little resemblance to current and future usage scenarios. Mismatches between the original design goals and how the Internet is being used are beginning to hamper its potential. Many challenges in the areas of technology, business, society and governance will have to be overcome if the future development of the Internet is to sustain the networked society of tomorrow.

To answer these challenges, the European Commission has launched the Future Internet Public-Private Partnership Programme (FI-PPP). The main goal is to advance a shared vision for harmonised European-scale technology platforms and their implementation, as well as the integration and harmonisation of the relevant policy, legal, political and regulatory frameworks. As set forth in the Digital Agenda for Europe, these are considered to be prerequisites for realizing a European online Digital Single Market (DSM) and, more broadly, an inclusive knowledge society.



Habitech owes its existence to an initiative of the autonomous Province of Trento and is recognized by the Ministry of University and Research. It is based on a collaboration between the University of Trento, research laboratories, private companies, and local authorities aimed at creating in the province of Trento production alliances specialized in the following sectors: sustainable construction, production of energy from renewable sources, and intelligent rural and urban planning technologies.

Habitech is a structured initiative which has developed in a social and institutional environment that is certainly very alert to new environmental challenges, but that views these not only as hazards, but also as opportunities. Habitech promotes a new production model based on a synergy between various players (companies, research centres, institutions) that are united in their purpose: to promote and propagate clean techs and to regard the need for environment protection as an opportunity.
