The 10th Finnish Internet Forum (FIF) will discuss topical matters related to the future of the internet, including 5G networks, open and decentralised web, and the role of the EU in the development of the internet.

A panel discussion before noon will focus on the regulation of the internet in the EU and its impacts on citizens in the era of AI. A panel discussion in the afternoon will debate the question of how societies will manage to deal with an open internet. Invited speakers will handle the security of 5G networks, while the keynote speaker will focus on the future of the internet from the EU’s perspective.
