Net!Works is the European Technology Platform for communications networks and services. Communications networks enable interaction between users of various types of equipment, either mobile (e.g. mobile phones) or fixed (e.g. PCs); they are the foundation of the Internet. The Net!Works European Technology Platform gathers more than 700 players of the communications networks sector: industry leaders, innovative SMEs, and leading academic institutions. The mission of Net!Works is to strengthen Europe's leadership in networking technology and services so that it best serves Europe's citizens and the European economy.
Bridging the gap between research and innovation and the expectations from the European society is critical. Therefore Net!Works is now committing to interact more with actors outside the research community. Decision makers from the various public authorities in charge of economic development or of local and regional policies, for example, will be asked to provide their views and cooperate. Read more
