1 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July (ZEROPOWER:  ) Luca Gammaitoni NiPS Laboratory, Università di Perugia (IT) Brussels, June

2 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July CA is not research… Coordination Actions have the aim to complement research projects, clustered in Proactive Initiatives, by supporting communities, providing a forum for discussion, supporting young researchers, Identifying research challenges and new research topics, setting out research roadmaps, taking joint actions in areas such as education, creating contacts with high-tech SMEs, supporting collaboration with groups outside Europe. 2 What is a Coordination Action (CA)

3 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Coordination action (CA) in FET Proactive ICT Call 6 FP7-ICT “Co-ordinating Research Efforts Towards Zero-Power ICT” Started in January 2011 Duration: 3 years Budget: € ZEROPOWER CA coordinates the activities of the 4 consortia involved in “Toward Zero-Power ICT” research projects (FET proactive call FP7-ICT , Objective 8.6) 3

4 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Consortium Four partners involved: NiPS-Univ. Perugia (It) coord., UAB (Sp), Tyndal-UCC (Ir), Univ Glasgow (UK) The four partners are coordinators of four projects that passed the evaluation on “Toward Zero-Power ICT” (FET proactive call FP7-ICT , Objective 8.6): - SiNAPS: semiconductor nanowires both for energy harvesting of electromagnetic radiation and for (bio-) chemical sensing.Tyndal - GREEN-Si: energy harvesting from temperature gradients with silicon silicon-germanium superlattices. Glasgow - NANOPOWER: fundamentals of energy harvesting at the nanoscale: mechanical vibrations, thermal fluctuations, quantum fluctuations. NiPS - NANERG: optoelectromechanical systems (unfunded) UAB and thus represent 4 different communities of scientists interested in energy harvesting and low power, energy efficient ICT.

5 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Communities ZEROPOWER is aimed at creating a coordination activity among consortia involved in “Toward Zero-Power ICT” research projects (FET proactive call FP7-ICT , Objective 8.6) and communities of scientists interested in energy harvesting and low power, energy efficient ICT.

6 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Identify a clear and present need for coordination (emerging field …) 6 The starting point 1)Addresses the problem of PORTABLE POWER for Autonomous ICT Devices 2)Addresses the problem of ENERGY EFFICIENCY in ICT To date these two problems were considered independently by different communities

7 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Key-point in our effort: A general approach to ICT devices as micro/nano machines An ICT device is a machine that inputs information and energy (under the form of work), processes both and outputs information and energy (mostly under the form of heat). Energy efficiency is usually defined as the percentage of energy input to a device that is consumed in useful work and not wasted as useless heat, however … Energy (work) ICT device Dissipative properties Inf. Processing properties Heat sink Information

11 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Annual Review Meeting 1

12 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Annual Review Meeting 1 Major achievements First Period Jan 1 st 2011 – Dec 31 st 2011 Communication is important ! A special section of the ZEROPOWER WEB site allows the registration for receiving a periodic Newsletter (NANOENERGY Letters) aimed at informing scientists and industrial players on advances related to ICT-Energy issues, together with scientific highlights from the research developed by the four consortia represented by the four partners of ZEROPOWER. Newsletter

13 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Annual Review Meeting 1 Major achievements First Period Jan 1 st 2011 – Dec 31 st 2011 Meeting is important ! We are bringing togheter a newly born community (2ZeroP) with a wider scientific and industrial (both pre-existing and novel) community. ZEROPOWER workshop The Community building is one of the important goals of the ZEROPOWER activity. In order to reach such a goal a number of action are planned and particularly there are 3 annual ZEROPOWER workshops planned during the project life time. The first one was organized by Tyndall-UCC in Cork, Ireland from Tuesday 25 th October to Thursday 27 th October 2011.

22 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July Approach to Community building The goal of this CA is to put the basis for the growth of a new scientific community that shares scientific and technological interests focussed around low-power/energy-efficient ICT. A first step toward this goal is represented by the coordination of 4 existing consortia involved in Toward Zero-Power ICT. Around this initial nucleus we plan to aggregate a much wider community of scientists interested in ICT-Energy related initiatives by carrying-on at European level a well structured activity composed by: - dissemination of scientific knowledge, - clustering of existing efforts, - networking of existing interest groups, - production of research agendas - surveys, tutoring and training future researchers

23 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July We put the basis for the growth of a new scientific community that shares scientific and technological interests focussed around low-power/energy-efficient ICT Where do we go from here?

24 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July joint collaborative task The list of mandatory activities to be covered is as follows: Joint Publications to promote the Proactive Initiative: web portal, journals, reports, presentations, joint press releases, joint books, newsletters, press kit, training material for students Joint Events for the Proactive Initiative: participation to the FET conference, contribution to: dedicated workshops & working groups, including with industry, consultation meetings, summer schools and clustering meetings (at least once a year) Strategy and Roadmapping for the Proactive Initiative: contribution to the initiative's impact assessment of results for research take-up and exploitation, contribution to white papers for new research topics and future workprogrammes International Co-Operation activities for the Proactive Initiative: contribution to relevant national and international activities (ex. joint workshops, calls, etc… for example with US, Canada, New Zealand, Japan…)

25 ZEROPOWER Workshop – July How do we do it?
