The theme of this year’s conference is
Internet, the economy and society in 2027

The NET FUTURES edition in 2017 will serve as a wake-up call for policy makers and technologist alike, for civil society and the young whose future we will influence. It will be the place for deep-dive conversations and learnings right at a time when Europe is at the brink of entering the next industrial revolution: The Net.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Internet, the economy and society in 2027” and it will focus on future policies to address emerging issues and trends, from the perspective of citizens, users and businesses.
With the mid-term review of the Digital Single Market strategy due to be published shortly, it is an excellent opportunity to reflect upon and sharpen the goals to be addressed by Europe.
The conference will offer diverse topics for debate and insight, and the occasion to reflect on current issues such as:
  • the industrial internet
  • the need for a free flow of data within Europe
  • legal ethical and social issues emerging within a software-defined world
  • the requirements of a Next Generation Internet
  • data protection issues in a world with huge amounts of data
  • mobile connectivity

Net Futures 2017 is a dynamic forum for cutting edge conversation.
