Sigma Orionis has strongly participated in the ICT 2013 conference and exhibition organised by European Commission’s DG Connect in Vilnius, Lithuania on November 6-8, 2013, on the theme ‘Create, Connect, Grow’. The event was very successful with an attendance of over 5000 delegates (researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, industry representatives, students, politicians) and an organization truly inviting each delegate to be creative, to think outside the box, to look at the future, to connect to other delegates.
The eight members of the Sigma Orionis’ team have greatly appreciated the opportunities offered by this event to discover attractive research results, to meet with interesting people, to share knowledge, to get inspired, to shape proposals for the first calls of Horizon 2020. The whole team has in particular actively participated in the exhibition booths and networking sessions related to the FP7 projects and initiatives that Sigma Orionis coordinates or is involved in: FET-ART, EINS, CAP2020, FI-Content2, NEM, OpenChina-ICT, EuroAfrica-P8, ei4Africa, CHAIN-REDS, etc.
A big thanks to the European Commission and to the Lithuanian government for having made all this possible!
