Smart online platforms will be a vital enabler of future economic growth across the EU and a key component of the EU single digital market. They also promise new ways to pool and mobilise society’s resources with the potential to address various impending social and environmental crises.
However, to reap these benefits, new thinking is required around the regulation and governance of smart online platforms to ensure balanced interests, and to promote fair and safe forms of participation, particularly relating to the role played by algorithms and data in driving economies of scale.
The objective of the day is to inform the participants about the H2020 calls on ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs I4MS (FOF-12-2017), Customised and low energy computing (including Low power processor technologies) (ICT-5-2017) and Micro- and nanoelectronics technologies (ICT-31-2017). Participants will have the occasion to present their proposal ideas for these topics and to network with other participants. In addition it will be possible to pose questions to Commission staff about proposal ideas. Read more
