The ASPIRE study was undertaken by four panels of experts coordinated by TERENA as part of the European Commission’s GN3 project. ASPIRE which is intended to inform policy and decision makers, has been exploring:
· Future Internet developments over the next 5-10 years in the context of the research and education community.

· Stimulating collaboration and knowledge transfer throughout the network provision and use chain: at the pan-European; national and campus levels.

· Collating and defining best practice that can be widely taken-up in Europe.

The study has focussed on four central themes:
· The adoption of cloud services in the Research & Education community

· The integration and use of mobile device connectivity into NREN services

· Middleware and managing data and knowledge in a data rich world

· The future roles of National Research and Education Networks.

During the BoF there will be a short presentation of the major findings and recommendations of each of the four studies. BoF members will then have the opportunity to discuss and provide feedback on the reports.

TERENA is undertaking a foresight study following on from the successful SERENATE and EARNEST studies completed in 2003 and 2008. The study known as: ASPIRE (A Study on the Prospects of the Internet for Research and Education) started on 1 April 2011 running for 18 months
