Growing the Green ICT Sector in Europe
Mr. Leo Brincat, Maltese Minister for Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change, has called for Green ICT to Boost Green Growth and Create Green Jobs in Europe, at an EU Environment Council Meeting (Government of Malta Press Release 7 March 2015). I am not sure what the Minister had in mind, but I have been teaching ICT Sustainability at the Australian National University (ANU) and designing a new course in "Innovation: Commercialisation and Intrepreneurship in Technology" to help students start-up their own business. I plan to be in Europe in late June for the 10th International Conference on Computer Science & Education (ICCSE 2015). ANU has a Centre for European Studies funded jointly with the European Commission. I would be happy to discuss green ICT for growth with government and industry while in Europe.
