  • SICT : A doctoral summer school on sustainable ICT
    from August 30, 2021 to September 3, 2021
    Are you concerned by the evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), their impact and the ways to design sustainable ICT? Do you sometimes wonder how your specific research is answering to the needs of our society? How to zoom-out in our complex system and ask yourself the question: how is my research dependent on external factors that are usually taken for granted? What is behind all these hypotheses allowing innovation and development of advanced technologies? How could you better account for them in your research and make things slightly differently? If these questions ring a bell for you, then join the second edition of the Summer School on Sustainable ICT organized by UCLouvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) from August 30th to September 3rd, 2021.

Sustainable nanoelectronics

The NEED Project on sustainable nanoelectronics will develop methodologies integrating economic analysis, geopolitics issues, acceptability and durability of new technological solutions, to apply to advanced research.

It will develop a global approach to IoT product design regarding their components, technological processes and innovation mananagement (methodologies) to avoid future supply disruption of key materials, regulation changes, and value changes of raw material.
