News :: ICT in Societal challenges
(10/12/2013) The transformative power of ICT can help address many of Europe's most pressing societal challenges, such as health, environment, secure and inclusive societies.
A challenge-based approach will bring together resources and knowledge across different fields, technologies and disciplines, including social sciences and the humanities. This will cover activities from research to market with a new focus on innovation-related activities, such as piloting, demonstration, test-beds, and support for public procurement and market uptake. It will include establishing links with the activities of the European Innovation Partnerships (EIP).
