Who are we?


In its current phase, the initial development stage that is predicted to last a few years, the main governance and strategy decisions (validation of the annual budget and business work plan, R&D priorities, version upgrades, public releases, communication strategy, and preparation and validation of the NEC Initiative configuration after the its initial phase) are made by the Partners of the Initiative that make up the Steering Committee.

After the first phase, the NEC Initiative is set to rely on a dedicated or hosting structure (such as an academic player or institutional body) and will include relevant civil society observers, while remaining transparent and open source. The targeted structure will host the cumulated NEC, R&D work, IP and brand for the benefits of all NEC users, ranging from the general public to NEC Initiative members.
