FOSS policy engagement: The impact of the NGI Open Source projects on EU policy and values

The ambition of the Next Generation Initiative (NGI) is to drive the internet technologies towards a human centric internet fully in-line with European values such as protection of privacy, inclusion, transparency, openness, decentralisation, and offer more choices to users. After 5 years, the NGI programme has funded more than 1000 open source projects and takes stock of the outcomes. Gartner and DG CONNECT will present insights from their study on the impact of the NGI in key areas such as EU policies and digital rights and values, standardization, sustainability.
