The aim is to prepare for new joint activities and this work will be done in close cooperation with Tekes and other key public R&D actors. The aim is also to involve both industry driven as well as public sector driven initiatives, and, for example, in areas such as aging society services, demand responsive solutions, energy monitoring and environmental monitoring, cities play the key role.
The next ICT Alliance Workshop will also be planned during the trip. The meeting will be held in China. The tentative time frame is 10-15 June 2013 and the event is suggested to take place in Beijing with meetings organized also in Shanghai to follow the official Workshop. The workshop will present the results of the first phase of projects and act as a kick-off for the new joint projects that are funded by the recent Tekes China cooperation call . The aim is also to present the new jointly identified areas of interest where joint R&D&I activities will be prepared.
