Get ready for the 3rd edition of the FET Conference and Exhibition

September 1, 2015

Officially launched today, the FET-Event project is coordinated by Sigma Orionis and mainly consists in the organisation of the next edition of the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) event.

The 3rd edition of the FET conference and exhibition, to be held in autumn 2016, is eagerly-awaited since the previous one was held in 2011 (visit the FET11 event website) and in the meantime FET has reached a new dimension: a new mandate going beyond ICT, newly launched large-scale initiatives, and a much larger budget.

Over 1200 attendees are expected alongside with 30 exhibiting organisations to reach the highest impact among targeted stakeholders (researchers, policy and decision makers, innovators and entrepreneurs, educators and schools, press and media, general public).

The event aims at fostering the dialogue on future and emerging technologies, showcasing FET progresses, seeding new ideas across disciplines and involving high-potential actors that can reshape the future.

Sigma Orionis is proud to coordinate this large-scale project alongside with the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM), coordinator of the previous edition of the event.

Stay tuned!
