Sustainable Places 2016 International conference
June 29 – July 1, 2016 – Anglet, France
The Sustainable Places 2016 event builds on the three successful previous editions of the conference, which gathered each year between 150 and 200 international delegates.
Sustainable Places 2016 will focus on energy efficiency at building, neighbourhood, district and city levels. It will cover research and innovation projects and initiatives across the construction value chain.
This open research forum will be a key opportunity for delegates to meet and network with academic & non-academic researchers, architects, building designers, energy consultants, urban planners, construction materials producers, energy generation systems manufacturers, ICT developers, public authorities representatives, construction companies, service companies (including financial organisations & ESCOs), distribution & transmission system operators, standardisation organisations, and facility managers.
Sustainable Places 2016 will enable to access up-to-date information, assess outcomes from the most advanced research and innovation projects, discuss possible synergies, and envision possible standards evolution. An attendance of around 200 participants, coming from Europe and other regions of the world, is expected.
Five kinds of contributions are expected:
- Presentation and Paper
One main aim of the conference is to act as a catalyzer to successful collaboration between EU projects. Sustainable Places therefore particularly encourages coordinators of Fp7 and H2020 projects in the targeted field to organize clustering workshops in the scope of the conference.
The deadline for submitting a contribution is 15 April 2016.

The commitments of the Green Digital Charter have been further advanced by the FP7 project NiCE – Networking intelligent Cities for Energy Efficiency –through the provision of technical tools, training and support to signatory cities.
Building on this experience and on best practices identified in cities, the NiCE project is now accepting proposals for the organisation of study tours showcasing ICT/EE projects to facilitate the on-site knowledge transfers between cities. Hosts are expected to be leaders in the field of ICT/EE projects and to present innovative projects around the fields of action of the Green Digital Charter. However, they do not necessarily have to be Charter signatories.
The study tour programme should run over 1 or 2 days and include short presentations, site visits and demonstrations, opportunities for testing technologies and peer-to-peer discussions with experts from the host city.
