Why ICT4E2b Forum
ICT4E2B Forum will map the sector-specific priorities into a common view and vocabulary. This will enable communication and understanding between experts in different sectors that need to join forces in order to achieve fundamental improvements in energy efficiency of buildings. An outcome of the project will be to define future research directions in this field.
ICT4E2B Forum is based on the Roadmap and International Community created within the framework of the REEB project. Other relevant running initiatives and projects such as EeB PPP, JTIs and ETPs will be integrated in our project to build-up a knowledge community with a clear business focus for translating ICT challenges for energy efficient buildings into a new generation of products/processes and services.
ICT4E2B Forum has a page dedicated to an updated review of formal networks and running projects on ICT 4E2B.
The Forum will be animated and kept dynamic through a Collaborative Platform where all structured knowledge will be shared. The Building Blog Page (link to Building Blog page on running projects) will focus on hot topics debated in the Forum and on other interesting news coming from the world of ICT4E2B (business models, standards, interoperability and regulations for market take-up).
