Description

ICT 2010 for ICT research and innovation - 'Digitally Driven'

ICT 2010 is Europe's most visible forum for ICT research and innovation. Hosted by the Belgian Presidency of the European Union for its 2010 edition, the biennial event has become a unique gathering point for researchers, business people, investors, and high level policy makers in the field of digital innovation. The present edition will focus on policy priorities such as Europe's Digital Agenda and the next financial programme of the European Union for funding research and innovation in ICT.  

ICT 2010 event consists of a main conference, an exhibition and dozens of networking sessions. The conference will be a place for leading figures from business, academia and politics to discuss and debate around the following key themes: 

  • the potential of digital solutions to promote sustainable growth in a low carbon economy;
  • the continuing constructive role of ICT in the daily life of citizens;
  • the importance of public participation in the innovation process.  

The conference will include special sessions presenting the European Union's funding priorities for the €2.8 billion of EU funding available for ICT research and development during 2011-2012. The draft programme has been made available here.  

At the exhibition, researchers from all parts of Europe and beyond will present their latest work in upstream ICT innovation as well as close-to-market projects. This is an opportunity to explore what is happening at the coal face in a given area of interest and to find potential future collaborators. Belgium's national pavilion will, in addition, showcase the innovation spirit of the host country through a range of Belgian digital solutions. 

As for the networking sessions, they have been designed to facilitate contacts between researchers and innovators, engineers and investors from all fields of digital innovation. This is a chance for participants to build future partnerships with the right people in their field. The networking proposals received will be evaluated and an online forum will be open, inviting comments and suggestions from potential networking participants. Once the list of approved networking sessions is published, registered delegates will also be able to meet like-minded colleagues - online or off - contact other ICT 2010 participants with similar interests using ICT 2010 secure email facilities and find out who else is interested in their favorite topics.  

Registration to the open to all event is to be performed online. Registered delegates can attend the ICT 2010 exhibition and any conference or networking session on the days for which they are registered. The attendance fee is €225 per day and €450 for the full three days for those registering prior to 26 June 2010 (€550 for late registration). Participation is entirely free of charge for disabled people, students and journalists.
