Abstract

This workshop aims to attract participants engaged in relevant research from European regions, particularly in the wider area of the eastern Mediterranean. Keynote talks will be given by experts in ICT. Additionally, practitioners and local authorities from Greece and elsewhere have been invited to contribute their experience of using ICT to promote smart and green regional development. The expected outcome will be a collection of case studies and experiences on the role of ICT to facilitate smart and green regional initiatives, along with the identification of best practice and effective evaluation methods for diverse governance levels. It is anticipated that this workshop will offer ample networking opportunities for participants as it will take place at the city centre of Thessaloniki where a number of smart and green initiatives are currently under way. Thessaloniki is the second largest city of Greece hosting Aristotle University, the largest University in the Balkans, while offering a plethora of options for tourism and cultural activities. Moreover, the workshop will share the activities of this Research Network and will also create new knowledge in the context of southern European regions affected by the on-going economic crisis fostering links with stakeholders and researchers which may lead to future collaborations. While this event is open to participants with any level of experience, early career researchers and PhD students within a range of disciplines are particularly encouraged to participate.
