The 5th edition of this major European innovation event will be held on 30 and 31 October at the CNIT de la Défense in Paris. More than 650 representatives from industry, academia and public institutions are expected to attend this event whose theme this year is: Sharing a vision for innovation in ICT.
It is anticipated that there will be a period of continuous change and disruption until 2030, in which the way of doing business will be radically different from today. The main areas of change and disruption are expected mainly in the following areas: globalisation, sustainable development, management of scarce resources, climate change, urbanisation, security and support for mobility, health and nutrition; but also the digital society in Europe: a strong industry must be based on ICT innovations which must be a prerequisite for maintaining a globally competitive position. ICT is one of the drivers of innovation affecting many key areas. For ITEA and ARTEMIS, ICTs are at the heart of innovation and continuous research. Innovation in ICT is necessary to master future economic and societal changes.
Participants will be able to discover in abundance that ICTs are at the heart of innovation while browsing through the 90 or so projects on display at ITEA and the ARTEMIS project exhibitions. This year's exhibitions will include a space dedicated to projects related to the theme of "reliability".
Francis Jutand, Scientific Director of the Institut Mines-Télécom, and Philippe Letellier, Director of Innovation at the Institut Mines-Télécom and Vice-President ITEA2, will both represent the Institute, alongside researchers from the Institute's laboratories involved in the projects.
