The ANR organises "The Meetings of Digital Technologies" on April 17 and 18, 2013 at the “Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie” in Paris. The Meetings aim at presenting the results of the research projects funded by ANR since 2008 in the digital domain. The Agency wishes to involve as many stakeholders and socio-economic partners in the field of ICT as possible.
Open to the scientific community, but also to a wider audience: companies, associations, teachers and elected officials, the two-day event will facilitate exchanges between these stakeholders and provide an overview of the scientific knowledge in the digital domain to a larger number of attendees.
"The Meetings of Digital Technologies" will broaden the debate by addressing challenges concerning on-going social-, political-, and economic changes and supported by the development of digital technologies.
This event is structured around several activities: demonstrations, keynote talks, posters, and workshops assigned to "thematic villages". More than 300 projects will be presented using posters and demonstrations. The main stakeholders of the field - public and private - will also introduce their work.
The "Digital Technologies ANR Awards" will be attributed on Wednesday, April 17. They will reward project coordinators recognised for their excellent and outstanding work.
During the lunch breaks, "ANR and Me" sessions will be the opportunity for you to meet with your contact persons at the ANR: the heads of ANR scientific departments, the programme managers (ICST-, Nano-, TecSan programmes, "Blanc International", etc.), and the project officers in charge of the follow-up of your project, etc.
