    ICT Key Enabling Technologies at the Service of European Citizens and Cities   Photonics – Micro/Nanoelectronics – LED Lighting for Smart Cities 29 - 30 October 2014 Rome European Event under the Italian EU Presidency co-organised by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research European Commission Directorate General Communications Networks, Content and Technology in collaboration with   2 Photonics  and Micro/Nanoelectronics  have been identified among the ICT Key Enabling Technologies as crucial for the development of novel services and innovative solutions benefitting society and the restructuring of industrial processes needed to modernise EU industry. Their development will support growth and the creation of new  jobs, while helping in facing the impelling Societal Challenges :   better healthcare, independent living for the elderly, delivering effective public services, energy saving, smart transport, secure internet, inclusion, preservation of cultural heritage, and combining sustainability with the realisation of Smart Cities  and Smart Communities . Europe has a worldwide recognised excellence in research  in both fields, which is not however always matched by the industrial competitiveness . European future competitiveness relies on the capability to innovate and to bring disruptive approaches to the market. This requires a strong effort by all involved actors, synergic public and  private investments supporting the realization of advanced infrastructures and adequate opportunities for young talents. A better understanding of the prospects created by ICT KETs can be achieved by sharing experience  made by European research centres,  public authorities and private actors, together with opportunities offered by European, national and regional/local incentive and support schemes, including the EU Smart Cities Initiative  and Horizon 2020  . Zooming in for the specific case of LED lighting  , the focus of day 2 is on accelerating its large-scale deployment and is intended to be a first step towards creating a European action plan  on this matter. LED lighting technology has become mature. The switch to LED lighting will make our cities 'greener' and help to reduce operating and maintenance costs compared to existing infrastructures. In addition, LED lighting offers higher quality light and enhanced visual performance and thus contributes to improving the ambience and safety of urban environments. Procuring and deploying innovative lighting at municipal level will also boost local innovation, growth and jobs.   Who should attend: ã   Public authorities in Energy/Health/Industry/Cultural Heritage/Research&Education In particular: o   Public authorities/utilities/service companies at municipal level with experience in implementing or considering to invest in Smart Cities and Smart Communities approaches; o   Public authorities/utilities/energy service companies at municipal level with experience in implementing or considering to invest in municipal public LED lighting deployment projects; ã   Government authorities / agencies and financial institutions at European, national or regional level, cities and municipality representatives In particular: o   Government authorities / agencies and financial institutions at European, national or regional level responsible for designing or with experience in running programmes supporting research and innovation in ICT fields; o   Government authorities / agencies and financial institutions at European, national or regional level responsible for designing or with experience in running programmes supporting energy efficiency, environmental or innovation measures in cities and local communities; o   ã   Industry and SMEs in the photonics and micro/nanoeletronics fields In particular:   3 ã   Industry and SMEs developing products and technologies based on (or enabled by)  photonics or micro/nanolectronics ã   Industry and SMEs supplying LED lighting technology for public lighting infrastructure ã   Scientists and research bodies senior managers involved in the photonics and micro/nanoeletronics fields ã   Young talents who wish to know more on the opportunities and applications related to ICT KETs Conference venue and language  Aula Convegni CNR, Piazzale Aldo Moro, 7 (entrance Via dei Marrucini), 00185 Rome, IT    The conference will be conducted in English.
