The scope of topics eligible to gain funding and support in NGI Pointer will be in the following predefined areas:
Limitations in the TCP/IP protocol suite
Autonomous Network operations and control
Internet at the Edge
Virtualization and isolation
Industrial Internet Security
Trust for New Internet/Web Users
Open Disruption of the Internet Architecture
Free Software Made Easy For Everyone
As part of NGI Pointer’s Advisory Board, the FSFE will provide support to successful applicants with advice about how to effectively and properly make their projects available as Free Software, as well as to provide assistance to those who wish to be REUSE compliant.
We are well-placed to assist with NGI Pointer, as our involvement will be similar to the work we are currently doing in the NGI Zero (“NGI0”) project. Under NGI0, the FSFE works with a consortium of non-profit organisations to similarly provide funding and technical advice for promising software projects, albeit with different topical scopes from NGI Pointer. Specifically, the NGI0 PET action seeks to support developing technologies that enhance privacy and trust in the internet, while the NGI0 Search and Discovery action aims to support projects that improve how information is searched for and discovered online.
NGI Pointer has recently launched its first open call for applicants on 1 April 2020. Once selected, NGI Architects will enter into a 12 month support programme across different stages that will be tailored to each individual beneficiary’s needs. The deadline for this first open call is 1 June 2020. If you think that you fit the bill of an NGI Architect ready to improve the web and internet architecture, be sure to apply!
Similarly, the NGI0 PET and Search and Discovery actions also have ongoing calls within the same time frame. Apply here to be part of NGI0 and get support for your software project now!
