The objective of this two-day Conference is to provide an opportunity for the public and private sectors to debate how Information & Communication Technologies can enhance environmental and energy sustainability and competitiveness in line with the goals of the Belgian EU Presidency.  Expert speakers will discuss how Technology and Policy interact within a progressive and dynamic partnership to achieve sustainability goals within tight financial constraints.  Open standards and interoperability will be considered as important contributions to promoting green I.T. for green policies.
