About the PARADISO project
CONTEXT
In a world of accelerating changes, and at a time when economic, social, and
environmental risks of breakdowns are in sight, forward-looking approaches are
of paramount importance. This applies in particular to the development of the
Internet, which can not only impact and transform societies in the long term
but has also to be adapted to the needs of tomorrow’s societies
particularly if
societal paradigm shifts are envisioned and if a true sustainable future is
targeted.

OBJECTIVE
The PARADISO project has explored the foreseeable interactions between
Internet
and societal developments in the next decades, identified new innovation
paths,
and suggested recommendations on research to be developed under FP8. In the
light of this work it has been preparing a CALL FOR ACTION, addressing in
particular the need of EXPLORING THE INTERNET AT ITS LIMITS.
