Intel at the heart of European Research and Development – ICT 2010: Biannual European Commission’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Conference. Intel Labs Europe sponsors the “Best Exhibit Prize”.0
Last week we participated in ICT 2010: Shaping the European Research and Innovation Agenda for the Next Decade, the biggest research conference for information and communication technologies organized by the European Commission’s Directorate General for the Information Society and Media. The conference was held in Brussels and gathered more than 6000 experts in all the fields of ICT research, policy and industry. More than 200 projects representing all the possible ICT fields of research were presented at the exhibition.
First of all, on behalf of
We also participated in the conference itself, which this year was focused on two key themes: ICT for sustainable growth in a low carbon economy, and ICT in the daily life of citizens and the importance of public participation in the innovation process. The conference was opened with a plenary debate on “Research and Innovation in the Digital Agenda for Europe” where European policymakers and CEOs of ICT companies shared their vision of the Europe’s ICT research and innovation policy for the next decade. The key outcome of the discussion was the acceptance of the fact that some profound changes are taking place in the economy and society, and that the whole ICT industry will need to shape itself.
This discussion continued on the following day, and another important message: The future is going to be about services, and there is a huge potential for the industry, but the stakeholders will need to change the way of thinking. Intel Labs Europe, being member of the Open Innovation Services and Policy Group (OISPG) and other network organizations is participating actively in the process of shaping the European services sector, and will continue its efforts towards raising its competitiveness.
On the second day Martin Curley delivered a talk at the Panel “Digital Roadmap to the Future” devoted to major transformative trends in ICT and the next scientific breakthroughs that will shape future technological developments and application scenarios for 2030 and beyond. In his talk he outlined how new products and emerging technologies being developed by Intel will help fuel a sustainable future, and discussed the synthesis of three mega trends coming together. These are the increasing acceleration of digital transformations, the ever-growing awareness of the need for sustainable paradigms and solutions, and the increasing importance of mass collaboration. For the letter, he cited as an example the Innovation Value Institute, a member of the Intel Labs Europe Network with 50 public and private sector organizations partnering together to research, develop and diffuse new models and methods for IT management and IT Innovation.
