Solutions: 
NGI EXPLORERS will design an agile fellowship programme to favour the growth of high potential Internet researchers and develop projects with the goal of create concrete NGI services and products ‘made in Europe’. Nevertheless, it will also integrate this objectives into the dynamic of NGI community to captivate them through an ecosystem building methodology, developed to attract the key European and US NGI players. This will help to the creation of synergies between EU and US.
03
Impacts: 

The expected impacts are an enhanced EU-US cooperation in Next Generation Internet, including policy cooperation; a reinforced collaboration and increased synergies between NGI and TIP, developing interoperable solutions and joint demonstrators, contributions to standards and the creation of an EU-US ecosystem of top researchers, hi-tech startups/SMEs and Internet-related communities collaborating on the evolution of the Internet
