ICTFOOTPRINT.eu Final Event - Building an eco-friendly Green ICT Market as the lasting legacy of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu

Jan 17 2019

LOCATION: @ The Egg in Brussels, Belgium
TIME: From 11:00 AM to 4.30 PM
THEME: Building an eco-friendly Green ICT Market as the lasting legacy of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu

ICTFOOTPRINT.eu event is co-located with Connected Smart Cities & Communities Conference (organised by OASC)


Purpose & Scope

The ICTFOOTPRINT.eu final event is thought of to consider as both a policy-oriented event, to showcase the results of the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu final policy roadmap deliverable as well as a chance to showcase all of the results achieved during the 36-month duration of the project. Based on the collaboration with AGIT for the workshop in Paris as well as the workshop in Amsterdam a global setting on discussing ICT Green issues is timely.

The day will also bring out insights around providing sound recommendations for energy-efficient ICT digital services that will contribute to the goals of the Paris Agreement. The study should analyse and propose future research priorities, ways to implement green public procurement of digital services also including data centres, and ways to stimulate the provisioning of eco-friendly cloud services. The latter is linked to a new study opened by the EC DG Connect Software & Services unit [1] that aims to have a study on energy-efficient cloud computing technologies & policies for an eco-friendly cloud market. The results of our day could contribute to supporting this study.  

The day will be a chance to peruse the assets of ICTFOOTPRINT namely:

Who should attend?

Innovators, ICT intensive SMEs wishing to become Green ICT friendly, Public administrations researchers, larger organisations policy makers and funding agencies looking to assess future priorities and challenges in Green ICT.

Key Benefits?

The event will bring together a reputable group of expert opinion leaders who are knowledgeable about IT resource efficiency and green ICT, and a heterogeneous audience providing the perfect occasion for networking and to share experiences.
