The ultimate objective is for everyone to be able to harness the potential of the internet.
IIS’s internet advancement projects are based on the foundation’s charter and bylaws. The motto for the projects is “Internet for everyone.” This means everyone in Sweden should have the same rights and same opportunities to harness services that are available on the internet. The Internet’s infrastructure is also in focus. It should be secure, stable and scalable to make the internet as user-friendly as possible.
