More WORKSHOPS

  • Workshop on ‘Smart’ sustainable cities and regions at the Open Days 2010, European Week of Regions and Cities , Brussels BE, 5 October 2010
    The workshop will address the topic of how ICT can contribute to the creation of more sustainable and cohesive cities and regions, focusing on the issues of energy efficiency, integrated social and health care, and ‘smart’ ways of providing governmental services. It will also review the progress made with the introduction of the Green Digital Charter, which commits cities to initiating five large-scale pilot projects each before 2015. Many of these pilot projects will receive support from European cohesion policy programmes. The workshop will also examine the synergies with the new Structural Funds regulation on energy-efficient housing. Following the workshop a ceremony will be held for the next round of signatories to the Green Digital Charter.
  • Workshop on ‘ICT for Energy Efficiency: Local and regional initiatives'at the Open Days 2010, European Week of Regions and Cities , Brussels BE, 5 October 2010
    An opinion on "Addressing the challenge of energy efficiency through information and communication technologies" was adopted by the CoR in November 2008. In this opinion, the CoR made a number of specific recommendations that could help local and regional authorities to become more energy efficient, including a suggestion for the "European Commission to draw up a practical guide, together with the CoR and other stakeholders, on how local and regional authorities can exploit ICTs in their climate change plans". In response to this, DG INFSO of the European Commission is developing this guide together with the CoR by way of a call for tender that was published in July 2009, with the final results delivered by the end of 2010. The aim of the workshop is to present this guide for ICT and energy efficiency. The workshop will target local and regional authorities and representatives from associations, active in the field of ICT.
