Green Engineering Camp
02 July 2012 — 06 July 2012
The Green Engineering Camp (GEC) is a pilot COST Interdisciplinary Science Initiative aimed at engaging specifically early stage researchers and investigators in real-life applications and intelligent and innovative uses of green ICT in order to boost knowledge transfer efficiently and to initiate new ideas and solutions to current and future challenges. Currently, a call for ideas is ongoing to select the most innovative ideas to present!
Green engineering is the core of this COST Interdisciplinary Science Initiative. It is planned to apply green engineering to the forest sector because this sector offers a broad case that may also include most areas covered by the COST Domain structure such as transport, economics, chemistry, etc. The full name description is Intelligent Use and Development of ICT to Increase Environmental Efficiency: the Case of Production and Logistics in the Forest Sector.
The aim of the camp is to come up with intelligent and innovative ways to make a wide range of forest-related activities more environmentally friendly by the use of ICT, and we will do so by promoting early stage researchers, female participation and transdisciplinarity.
To achieve this, a Call for Ideas: Greening the Forest Sector Engineering with ICT is open until 31 January 2012. The Call for Ideas is open to anyone and the two-stage assessment procedure starts with a one-page outline only!
