MAPPING’s goal is to create an all-round and “joined-up” understanding of the many and varied economic, social, legal and ethical aspects of the recent developments on the Internet, and their consequences for individuals and society at large. It specifically capitalises upon and debates the existing innovation policies, business models and legal frameworks related to the implementation of the Digital Agenda for Europe, as well as the changes needed to set up an improved governance structure for the EU innovation ecosystem.

These include for example, academics, law and policy makers, Internet Service Providers, international and EU Internet governance bodies, NGOs and civil society organisations. MAPPING aims to contribute to the digital transition and improve the innovation climate in the EU concentrating efforts in 3 focus areas:
