Tim Berners-Lee – On Three Trends of Concern

From SLA Connect

The Guardian: Tim Berners-Lee: I invented the web. Here are three things we need to change to save it  https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/mar/11/tim-berners-lee-web-inventor-save-internet. “Today marks 28 years since I submitted my original proposal for the worldwide web. I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In many ways, the web has lived up to this vision, though it has been a recurring battle to keep it open. But over the past 12 months, I’ve become increasingly worried about three new trends, which I believe we must tackle in order for the web to fulfill its true potential as a tool that serves all of humanity.”

There are two types of Internship opportunities at the Alliance: the NATO-Funded and the GRANT-funded Internship Programme.

The NATO-funded Internship Programme gives opportunity to a wide range of candidates, while the other opportunity is open for those, whose work is supported from outside sources. And while Candidates interested in a GRANT-funded opportunity can apply throughout the year, the call for the NATO-funded opportunity is open only once per year in Spring with two starting dates, in March and in September the following year. Internships will last 6 months.

The 15th call for applications for NATO-funded internships is open from 13 March 2017 until 18 April (23h59 CET), for placements in 2018 (All interns have been selected for a placement in 2017)

Please refer to our website for more information on the selection timeline: http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/72041.htm
Candidates wishing to apply for a GRANT Funded can submit their application only through the online portal available under “Application”.

NATO Headquarters (HQ) introduced its Internship Programme in 2004. The aim of the programme is to provide a small number of current or recent students with the opportunity to intern with the International Staff at NATO Headquarters in Brussels and in a few other NATO bodies.
