NGI Consultation platform
At the ICT Proposers Day 2017 in Budapest, SpeakNGI.eu launched the NGI Consultation platform to start discussion on topics of importance to WP2018 of NGI (Privacy and Enhancing Technologies, Decentralised Data Governance, and Discovery and Identity) and future topics for WP2019.
Could we please ask you to take some time to go to https://consultation.ngi.eu/ and register to the platform and can you add something about your current work and your own ideas for the Next Generation Internet.
Even if you have a topic that might be considered for the next WP2019, and it isn't part of the 3 current WP2018 channels, perhaps you can add something under the channel WP2019 topics directly. This would help in selection of topics for the WP2019 NGI call.
Steps to follow:
2. Click on the discussion channel(s) you want to contribute to (or you can add a new one also);
3. Once in the discussion channel, you click on +Open new discussion in this channel (in Add new discussion in the channel box on right side above the tags);
4. Add your discussion content directly in the box and add any new tags by typing in at the bottom. The original channel tag you selected previously will automatically get entered when you save it. So you don't have to enter it again. E.g. if you went into the discussion channel on Decentralised Data Governance, that will automatically be added as a tag.
5. Click Save.
6. Please send any comments you might have at: https://consultation.ngi.eu/contact-us.
Thanking you in advance. Even if you don't have anything to add right now, please go ahead anyway and register and you can check back again.
