The 3rd edition of the Sustainable Places conference took place on September 16-18, 2015 at the University Campus of Savona, Italy. Sustainable Places 2015 is an original initiative from the RESILIENT and PERFORMER FP7 European project consortiums, which received support from the European Commission, BUILD UP, ECTP–E2BA, EIP-SCC (Eu-smartcities), EUbusiness, and Ideal-ist.
Sustainable Places 2015 gathered institutional, researchers, and engineers, around one of the greatest challenges that our societies have ever faced: ensuring long-term environmental sustainability of ever-growing, densifying urban areas, in a resource-constrained world. To tackle these issues, the conference offered to question energy efficiency at building, district and city levels. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) along with other key research domains (energy, materials, methods and practices, etc.) were at the core of the conference. Once again, the Sustainable Places conference proved to be a fantastic opportunity for networking and clustering among projects funded in the framework of the FP7 and H2020 EeB PPP. Participants had the opportunity to assess innovative initiatives, access up-to-date information, discuss market trends and envision possible synergies.
About 150 delegates, coming from Europe and other parts of the world attended the event.
