The project 'Let's Connect' has won the Dutch ISOC Innovation Award 2018. According to the jury this is "a much needed technical innovation that potentially can have a large societal impact. We are depending on sound VPN technology to ensure safe Internet connections, especially now that net neutrality is internationally under severe pressure."
Among the nominees for the award this year was also the project e-Dem, initiated by Network Democracy in collaboration with Waag and the Dutch Ministry of Internal Affairs. The project aims to enhance the participation of citizens in The Netherlands by offering them digital tools and Dutch municipalities and local governments the opportunity to use these tools in their daily practice.
The ISOC.nl Innovation Award acknowledges new and important Internet-related initiatives and is an annual prize for persons, institutions or initiatives in the field.
