How to design more sustainable ICT?

3rd dec 2013 PM – Paris – France


Direct electricity use of the Internet is probably around 10% of total electricity consumption, said Jon Koomey Research Fellow at Stanford University.

That surprising fact is a reality that we often deny for the sake of New Technologies: Energy consumption and electronic waste are just the begining. In our digital world, where Internet and electronic devices are omnipresent : Which innovations will allow us to consider a more responsible future in ICT? If you are concerned about this issue, the European Project KARIM invites you to participate to the next OPEN FORUM, the meeting place for academic and private expertises and innovative SMEs across Northwest Europe.
