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.
