Regarding the enabling impact of ICT in the water and waste sectors: The water-sector is characterised today notably by the fragmentation of solutions (implementation within the sector itself on a case-by case basis, restricted geographical reach, and limited interoperability with other sectors - e.g. health, energy, transport - which undermines - among others - the development of integrated services and solutions in urban contexts) and the lack of interoperability across water national/international information systems. Regarding Transport infrastructures: Transport is a majorcontributor to greenhous gases (GHG) in Europe and the globe and its infrastructures are among the key determinants of final consumption of non-renewable energy. The potential for resource-efficiency gains is correspondingly large but efforts at optimization of the mobility of passengers and goods within and across infrastructures (inter-modality) remain underexploited. The complexity of challenges including the multi-factor importance of context (ex: intra-urban/inter-urban) invites a much larger treatment of ICT applied to Transport beyond automation. Regarding the enabling impact of ICT in the Energy Sector: The progress on standards for smart grids is too slow. These can be tailored to demographics, local needs, individual habits, etc. Utilities are reluctant to modernise their infrastructures - often in the face of unclear business models. There is insufficient cross-sector dialogue on the possibility to exploit synergies that exist between infrastructures su as, for example, (passive/active)requirements for broadband and for smart grids. There is a need for faster and more substantial progress on standardisation in several ICT areas for the eventual roll-out of affordable Internet-of-Things solutions with a potential to fine-tune services to demand, thus reducing overcapacity and waste within and across number of networked infrastructures.
