Does the internet improve democracy?

How dependent are you on your smartphone?

In a public consultation launched by EU-funded project REIsearch, a succession of surveys published in newspapers like the Guardian over the next few weeks will ask citizens from all over Europe for their views on everything from privacy and security to artificial intelligence, net neutrality, big data and the impact of the digital world on jobs, health, government and democracy.

The aim of the campaign is to provide policymakers with a better understanding of public priorities on the Next Generation Internet, and to foster its development as a powerful, open, data-driven, user-centric, interoperable platform ecosystem. The results will be publicized at the Next Generation Internet Summit to be held in Brussels on June 6-7.

The survey for Week 1 is available here. We encourage you to have your say on the future of internet in Europe.

The newspapers and publications involved are Der Standard, El País, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, La Libre Belgique, Gazeta Wyborcza, Luxemburger Wort, Público, Il Sole 24 Ore, The Lancet, Cell and the Guardian.

PlusValue is a Knowledge Partner for the project, with Fiorenza Lipparini leading on contents creation. You can find updated links to all news articles published for the campaign here.
