The research project "Trilogy: Architecting the Future Internet", which developed a long-term solution to Internet traffic congestion, received the prize "Future Internet Award" at Future Internet Week in Poznan, Poland (October 28, 2011).
The "Trilogy" project received the prize for its outstanding contribution to the Internet architecture and protocols, which could help provide Europeans with faster, more reliable Internet connections.
The three year project, completed in March 2011, brought together researchers and companies from Belgium, Finland, Germany, Greece, Spain, UK and the US to find methods of managing traffic so that congestion at choke points of the network is minimised, thus resulting in better quality connections for Internet users.
