Needs of SMEs for the Internet of the future – A dialogue between SMEs, the Internet industry & the IGF Community

eco – Association of the Internet Industry, the Alliance for the Strengthening of Digital Infrastructures in Germany & Initiative Digital

invite you to discuss the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for the Internet of the future.

When the Internet Governance Forum (IGF 2019) comes to Germany for the first time in November 2019, the players in the international multi-stakeholder dialogue (governments, civil society, business, academia, (inter)national organizations and the technical community) will discuss issues such as Data Governance, Digital Inclusion and Security, Safety, Stability & Resilience of the Internet of the future.

At this session as part of Day Zero on 25 November 2019, the IGF 2019 Community will be brought into closer contact with users from SMEs in Germany. The aim is to identify and discuss the real points of reference of the SME representatives from the user industries for the Internet of the future. The points of contact for regular exchange between the SME user industries and the multi-stakeholder groups mentioned have so far been limited. For this reason, eco – Association of the Internet Industry would like to draw the attention of and gain traction with SME representatives from the user industries at the IGF 2019 in Berlin in relation to the focus topics and three major themes of the IGF 2019 conference.

Representatives of SMEs will brought together with representatives of the Internet industry to discuss current issues of digital transformation in relation to their specific business models. The aim is to incorporate the concrete needs and demands of SME representatives from the user industries into the multi-stakeholder dialogue for an Internet of the future. In this way, the voice of the users in Berlin will find its way and be integrated into the dialogue, and in turn the relevance of the Internet Governance Forum for the user industries will be communicated.
