iWIDGET and ICT4Water at ICT2015 in Lisbon in October
iWIDGET and the ICT4Water cluster will be taking part in the ICT2015 Conference and Exhibition in Lisbon in October.
The ICT 2015 Conference will present the new Commission policies and initiatives with regard to Research and Innovation in ICT, Excellent Science and Societal Challenges. It will focus on how we can "Innovate, Connect and Transform" the Digital Society. For details on the conference programme, click here.
The interactive exhibition will dynamically showcase the best-in-class results of the existing European ICT Research & Innovation (from FP7, CIP and H2020 programmes), presenting very advanced research, future visions and being a showcase for activities with a high potential impact on the European industry, competitiveness and the future life and well-being of European citizens. Details of the exhibition can be found here.
In addition to this, ICT 2015 provides and creates many networking opportunities for participants. Networking sessions, Face2Face meetings, networking booths and “cosy corners” to sit and meet. The aim is to allow all participants to discuss and debate various ICT subjects in formal or informal ways, but also to find business partners. The networking programme is available here.
Find the iWIDGET project and the ICT4Water cluster at the off-site exhibition, and at the networking session "Smart Water for the Smart City and the IoT".
