The next ten years will see major transformations in the technological, industrial and business landscapes surrounding information and communication technologies, or "ICT".
The biennial ICT event has therefore become a unique gathering point for researchers, business people, investors, and high level policy makers in the field of digital innovation.
This year's ICT event – which was held in Brussels from the 27 to the 29 of September – focused on policy priorities such as Europe’s Digital Agenda and on the next financial Programme of the European Union for funding research and innovation in ICT.
Particularly, the following key themes were examined:
- Powering our sustainable future: the potential of digital solutions to promote sustainable growth in a low carbon economy
- The human face of the digital age: the continuing constructive role of ICT in the daily life of citizens and the importance of public participation in the innovation process.
These themes were discussed and debated by leading figures from business, academia and politics.
Services are at the heart of the Digital Agenda, so NESSI took the opportunity of ICT 2010 to demonstrate its crucial role in service domain giving live demonstrations at the NESSI Booth, organizing 3 interactive sessions and setting up many information stands.
