The infrastructure of the Internet has and will continually evolve to support and enable new services, trends and businesses. Europe is committed to take a leading role in exploring the emerging visions for the Future Internet that will drive the requirements for its underlying network and service infrastructure. Also, ICT is evolving from a facet of business operation and a collection of consumer gadgets to a critical infrastructure that underpins the economy and society. In parallel, the mechanisms for and even the nature of innovation are changing. The next EU Work Programme for Research in ICT will reflect this unavoidable move towards a larger share of the economy/social activities moving on line, with a need to make the Internet capable of supporting a larger number of usages whilst remedying to the current deficiencies in terms of presentation, security, trust, scalability, mobility, etc. All the "visions" presented would then become use cases in relation to an all-encompassing research objective federated under, and driving the requirements towards, a "Future Internet" Challenge.
