In ICT We Trust 2018
28-29 June 2018, Graz, Austria
The conference "In ICT we trust?" follows a broad, non-reductive conception of cyber security which does not reduce the problem to a mere technical question. Rather, the emphasis is on ethical implications and sociocultural perceptions of digital environments. The establishment and general uptake of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in European societies is not just a question of functionality, (technical) security and usability.

Climate-intelligent city (eco)design: the benefits of urban climate services
22 May 2018, Brussels, Belgium
Due to the high concentration of people, infrastructure and economic activity, cities are extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, such as heat waves and flash floods.
In addition, dense concentrations of impervious artificial surfaces, such as buildings, roads, and pavements – typical of urban areas – tend to amplify climate extremes, and hence costs.
Given this vulnerability, it is clear that cities are in need of tailor-made urban climate information that accounts for their particular physical and socio-economic characteristics so as to assist decision-making at local government level.
Cities have a unique opportunity to use advanced climate services to become greener, safer and to enhance the quality of life of their inhabitants. This two-hour event, organised within the framework of the H2020 project Climate-Fit, will showcase how three urban sectors – urban planning, active mobility and emergency management – benefit from tailored urban climate services and facilitate the (eco)design of intelligent cities.
Speakers include urban climate information providers and users (city planners) as well as EU and national decision-makers. Cities, regions, businesses and EU officials are invited to discuss and challenge the market potential of urban climate services while learning about their benefits.
The event is free of charge. Lunch will be served before the event from 12:00. Register using the registration form available on the event website and discover the opportunities climate services present for your city!
EURINT 2018 conference | Reflecting on Europe’s (dis)order: scenarios for the EU’s future
18-19 May 2018, Iasi, Romania
The Centre for European Studies within Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi organizes the seventh EURINT edition, May 18-19, 2018. The event is part of the EURINT conference series which was successfully launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme.
Since 2013, the EURINT conference series has established itself as a visible academic event in the field of European Studies and in this regard we aim at developing it into a traditional conference series.
During the last year, the European Union has faced unprecedented challenges (Brexit, the rise of populism, the devaluation of EU-USA relations) which have represented both a test and an alarm sign for future threats.
These challenges have shifted the ordinary political and economic paradigms and have created a new state of affairs for the EU, as well as for its partners. Therefore, new policies are required to help address the urgent economic, political and social challenges.
Current strategies are being questioned while new perspectives of the European and global economy are emerging
