The RoadMap of National Technological Cluster on “Smart Living Technologies”



The event is intended as a day of presentation of the Roadmap of the National Technological Cluster "Smart Living Technologies", in a context that will deepen some important strategic issues such as social changes, the demographic change and the aging population, the attention to improving the quality of life and well-being of citizens as well as environmental sustainability, requiring a redesign and a radical transformation of the living environments - the urban space, domestic space, work environments, mobility, ' accessibility of services, welfare - according to a user-centric approach.


The event will also serve as a great opportunity for comparison and verification of program activities in progress at international, national and regional level and an opportunity for a fruitful optimization of objectives and resources, looking toward the key initiatives of the new european programmes, like Horizon 2020, Smart Specialisation Strategy, Structural funds 2014-2020, etc.

The Technological Cluster is a strategic initiative of the Italian Ministry of Research and , in its objectives and its strategic vision, considers this scenario, with the development of enabling technologies, devices, products and innovative services, such as a huge opportunity to take advantage of the possibility of underlying economic and social growth that will need new actors (Public, Private, Research System and End Users) with new roles compared to the past.

ENoLL President, Tuija Hirvikoski, will speak about the network of living labs.
