The Spanish Association of Telecommunication Engineers (AEIT) has organized the Euro Med Telco Forum 2016. A two days event about “ICT innovations in shipping and Smart Port Management in the Mediterranean Area”, 22-23 April in Valencia (Spain)The Euro Med Telco Forum (EMTF) is a collaborative group formed by the associations of telecommunication or ICT engineers of Greece, Italy and Spain within the framework of FITCE (Federation of National Associations of ICT & Media Professionals). Currently EMTF has focused its main objective to promote a strengthen collaboration in joint innovation projects and/or R&D, for which they have been proposed up and finding partners in specific projects with professionals, universities and companies with the respective associations have agreements.
In this two days event we have chosen maritime traffic and smart ports as the main topic to promote the collaboration and partnerships to develop R&D projects that could fix in the European calls of the framework of Horizon 2020. We want to join representative bodies of the three countries, port authorities, research organizations, universities, companies and ICT professionals to share their projects and initiatives in order to reach partnerships and promote ICT projects in the Mediterranean basin.
Port of Valencia is one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean basin and it’s the perfect place to meet to talk about maritime traffic.Agenda
