European Commission seeks to understand how the general public views the future of the Internet. 

Amidst concerns over issues relating to privacy, security and the impact the digital world will have on jobs, the EU is taking the unprecedented step of launching a consultation with the public to determine what they fear most about the future of the Internet. 


President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, described the consultation process as inspiring “fresh ideas about how to solve some of our society’s most pressing problems”. The public consultation is being led by the non-profit initiative REIsearch and is co-funded by the European Commission. The results from the surveys used in the consultation process will be published by a handful of European publications including the UK’s The Guardian.
