The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

Network virtualization: The past, the present and moving forward | ITU Journal | Webinar
11 Jul 2024
ITU
Network virtualization (a.k.a. network slicing) allows multiple logical networks to coexist on a single physical network while isolated from each other, i.e., without performance or security interferences. It was first propounded as a diversifying attribute of the future inter-networking paradigm that can enable seamless integration of new features resulting in a more rapid evolution of the Internet architecture. Later, it was rolled out in data center networks to provide bandwidth guarantees to cloud applications. More recently, it has been incorporated as a pillar of 5G and beyond mobile communication networks to provide differentiated services with stringent bandwidth, latency and reliability requirements. However, despite a significant progress in virtualization research and technologies over the last two decades, the end-to-end deployment of virtual networks in practice remains unrealized. This talk provided an overview of the genesis and evolution of network virtualization, present key underlying challenges and solution ideas, and an outlook to end-to-end 5G and beyond network slicing.

digital Enabling Distributed Applications with Online Machine Learning
Enabling Distributed Applications with Online Machine Learning
9 Jul 2024
AI for Good
With the recent proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more devices now have computing capabilities and Internet connections. While these newfound capabilities have enabled a multitude of emerging applications, e.g., large-scale machine learning that takes as input data collected by many IoT sensors, they also raise new challenges for ensuring that such applications receive the data, computing, and communication resources that they need. Some data analytics tasks, for example, may require significantly more processing capabilities than others, and these capabilities may not always be available depending on the status of devices in the network. Optimizing such resource allocations across heterogeneous applications is in general NP-hard and becomes even more challenging in a dynamic and uncertain environment in which user demands and resource availability may change in unknown ways over time. In this talk, I will present our recent work using online and reinforcement learning techniques to provision both computing and communication resources for heterogeneous applications. By incorporating prior knowledge of the problem structure and application requirements, we can significantly accelerate our ability to learn how to allocate resources without requiring prior models of the environment. Our experiments on distributed machine learning and autonomous vehicle applications indicate that we can improve application performance and utilize fewer resources compared to static and naive learning-based baselines.

digital Long term vision for rural areas: From vision to action
Long term vision for rural areas: From vision to action
5 Jul 2024
DigitalEU
In this video, Mario Milouchev Director of Directorate D, DG Agriculture and Rural Development, explains the goals that the European Commission has set for 2040, within the so called “Long term vision for rural areas” and the actions that have taken place so far to reach these goals. Key initiatives are relevant to connectivity. For example the Commission has made available €23.5 billion in grants for broadband in underserved areas and has updated state aid rules to encourage broadband investments. Additionally, €100 million has been invested in agricultural and rural digitalisation research under Horizon Europe. Between 2019 and 2023, rural broadband speeds surged from 30 to 125 Mbps, though rural areas still lag behind urban counterparts. Digital literacy is also on the rise, with 47.5% of rural residents now having basic or higher-level digital skills. Watch to learn more about the steps being taken to create stronger, connected, and more resilient rural communities. This video is part of the European Broadband Competence Offices Network’s programme promoting awareness of good practices in broadband projects as well as EU broadband funding and policy.
