Networking session on NEM innovation and Grand Societal Challenges
T 007, 29/09/2010 (09:00-10:30)
ICT has a major role to play in addressing challenges such as global warming and public health, and securing supplies of energy, water and food.
The objective of this session is to share NEM (networked and electronic media) positions with interested parties, and to introduce the potential of the NEM approach to new partners. For example, internet connectivity will make grids smarter, greener and more efficient, while near-real-time sensor networks will enhance both the environment and the availability of critical resources. Putting ‘intelligence’ into roads and cars by using sensor networks, radio-frequency tags and positioning systems is also a promising solution for congested roads. ICT can ensure an ambient environment capable of assisting patients and an aging population, too. Finally, it can deliver the smart search engines needed to manage all this information efficiently.
