Sustainable Places - Nice - October 1-3, 2014

July 22, 2014

As a member of its organising committee, Sigma Orionis is pleased to announce the 2014 edition of the Sustainable Places event, to take place in Nice on October 1-3, 2014.

Organised by the RESILIENT and PERFORMER projects (to which Sigma Orionis contributes as a full partner) with the support of the European Commission and the European construction technology platform (ECTP/E2BA), Sustainable Places 2014 builds on the successful ICT for Sustainable Places conference held in Nice in September 2013.

The 2014 edition will focus on energy efficiency at building, district and city levels. The event will be composed of plenary sessions as well as high-profile colocated events as following:

  • The 2nd EC DG CONNECT workshop on eeBuilding Key Performance Indicators,
  • The EuropIA.14 international workshop on architecture and city design,
  • Presentations & workshops on innovative business models, technologies, modelling and monitoring for sustainable buildings, districts and cities.

Sustainable Places 2014 will enable to access up-to-date information, assess outcomes from the most advanced research & innovation projects, discuss possible synergies, and envision possible standards evolution.

It will be a key opportunity for delegates to meet and network with high quality keynote speakers (from CSTB, CEA, Arup, Intel and CalCon), as well as with architects, building designers, energy consultants, and urban planners.
