1 Ecoinformatics in « ICT for Sustainable Growth » Prepared by: Dr. Márta Nagy-Rothengass Head of Unit ICT for Sustainable Growth, DG Information Society and Media, European Commission Talk given by P. Haastrup, European Commission, JRC Ecoinformatics 2008

2 Overview ICT for Sustainable Growth: … means Domains of activity Community Instruments Reasearch (FPs) Deployment (CIP: ICT PSP) Conclusion

3 ICT for Sustainable Growth means... Environmental Management Disaster and Risk Management Energy Efficiency ICT for Sustainable urban development EU Sustainable Development Strategy and the EU Lisbon Strategy Research and Development + Competitiveness and Innovation funding programmes

4 ICT is part of the problem … … and part of the solution ICT should not only reduce its own footprint… ICT can also help to reduce the footprint of all other sectors/activities Sustainable consumption and production Better monitoring and management of the environment Better preparedness, mitigation, adaptation to climate change, environmental threats, and disasters Extension of independent living, improved healthcare systems, Clean mobility, Moreover, by increasing awareness, it will be instrumental to change consumers behaviour

5 Domain of activity – 1 ICT for Energy efficiency Priority areas : ICT in the Energy Mix and Security of Supply ICT for better Energy Efficiency Distributed Generation Buildings and Homes Industrial and Business processes Environmental/ climate impact

6 Vision of ICT contributing to a cleaner, safer and healthier global environment Focus on unsustainable trends in Europe: Degraded environment Exposure to diverse pollutants Exposure to ever more frequent disasters Targets a consolidated European capacity of mastering, predicting and managing the environment and its resources, making use of ICT that interoperate in a Single Information Space for the Environment in Europe (SISE) Urban environment earmarked as a possible priority test bed Domain of activity - 2 ICT for Environmental Sustainability

7 INSPIRE EC Directive establishing an infrastructure for spatial information in the CommunityINSPIRE EC Directive establishing an infrastructure for spatial information in the Community GMES EC-ESA initiative for the Global Monitoring of the Environment and SecurityGMES EC-ESA initiative for the Global Monitoring of the Environment and Security GEO Recent intergovernmental partnership of 70 Nations to build GEOSS, the Global Earth Observation System of SystemsGEO Recent intergovernmental partnership of 70 Nations to build GEOSS, the Global Earth Observation System of Systems Contributing technical interoperability to ongoing policy initiatives

8 Domain of activity - 3 ICT* for Disaster & Emergency Management Response Dispatching of resources Emergency telecom Situational awareness Command control coordination Information dissemination Emergency healthcare Disaster Management Cycle Prevention and Mitigation Hazard prediction and modeling Risk assessment and mapping Spatial Planning Structural & non structural measures Public Awareness & Education.. Preparedness Scenarios development Emergency Planning Training Alert Real time monitoring & forecasting Early warning Secure &dependable telecom Scenario identification all media alarm Post Disaster Lessons learnt Scenario update Socio-economic and environmental impact assessment Spatial (re)planning Recovery Early damage assessment Re-establishing life- lines transport &communication infrastructure

9 Sustainable growth A panoply of converging instruments To devise and implement adequate European policies To support RTD on next generation of ICTs contributing to sustainable growth To raise awareness and deploy ICT-based solutions for environmental sustainability AN OVERALL STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK FOR COMMUNITY ACTION

10 Building upon FP6 research in ICT for Disaster Management Three calls in 2003, 2005 and 2006 In-situ monitoring and smart sensor networks Risk information infrastructure and generic services Public safety communication, alert systems and rapidly deployable emergency telecommunications systems Emergency management and rescue operations Distributed tsunami early warning and alert system (Europe & Indian Ocean) Humanitarian demining Projects will deliver in

12 ICT for Environmental Management ICT for Environmental Management Expected Outcome I a)Collaborative systems for environmental management From monitoring to reporting, management, alert and response Enhanced capacity to assess population exposure and health risk Generic solutions with typical validation focus on water and air Visionary concepts, as well as evolutionary integrated systems Funding schemes: IP and STREPS WORK PROGRAMME

13 ICT for Environmental Management Expected Outcome II b)Coordination and Support Actions Adoption of common open architectures (INSPIRE, GMES, GEOSS) ICT research for risk reduction and disaster and emergency management Building the European Research Area in the field of ICT for environmental sustainability e)Specific International Cooperation Action ICT for environmental disaster reduction and management Development and interoperability of rapidly deployable ICT-based solutions Assessment of natural hazards and communities vulnerability For public warnings and emergency management Funding scheme: CSA Funding schemes: STREP/SICA, CSA WORK PROGRAMME

14 Towards future research needs Flexible chaining of distributed environmental services Methods and protocols for service discovery and chaining Automatic data and services quality control Semantics and ontology services Chaining of models, predictive tools On-demand distributed geo-processing Interactive, Web-based 3D analysis and visualisation tools Smart wireless monitoring networks Sensor Web Portable sensors Massive deployment of low cost miniaturised sensors...

15 Conclusion Cooperation in Eco-informatics Very ambitious goals and challenges Need to ensure interoperability worldwide Common research topics Exchange of best practices Supporting links between project clusters Standardisation, SDI …. WG Eco-informatics
