Socio-Economic Priorities

posted 13 May 2011, 02:42 by Brian Pickering
While planning a workshop on The Social Nature of Technical Choices a significant number of FP7 Challenge 1 projects were asked to rate the importance of a number of socio-economic topics, taken from the recent Towards a Future Internet report. Based on their responses, a number of interesting conclusions arise concerning what the focus is for projects within a given Challenge 1 objective. Some topics - like Green Internet and Cybercrime, as well as the Digital Agenda - seem to be ignored by all projects. Others, like Content Regulation, are regarded as important to only a few. All in all, responses to the survey highlight opportunities to engage and encourage discussion, raising awareness and underlining potential.
