NetWorld2020 is the European Technology Platform for communications networks and services. Communications networks enable interaction between users of various types of equipment, either mobile or fixed. They are the foundation of the Internet. The NetWorld2020 European Technology Platform gathers players of the communications networks sector: industry leaders, innovative SMEs, and leading academic institutions
The mission of the NetWorld2020 Platform is among other things:
To develop position papers on technological, research-oriented and societal issues, which are agreed in NetWorld2020 bodies to receive a joint mandate.
To seek discussion of issues with decision makers in the political and public domain as well as in the industry and research community to bridge the gap between research and innovation and the expectations from the European society.
To regularly develop an updated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for Europe in the communication networks domain.
The vision of NetWorld2020 is, among other things, to contribute to collaborative research programmes on European and national level for collaborative research in the domain of mobile and wireless, fixed and satellite communication networks by a regularly updated research agenda.
