Universities, R&D Groups and Academic Networks

SMARTGREENS is a unique forum for universities, research groups and research projects to present their research and scientific results, be it by presenting a paper, hosting a tutorial or instructional course or demonstrating its research products in demo sessions, by contributing towards panels and discussions in the event's field of interest or by presenting their project, be it by setting up an exhibition booth, by being profiled in the event's web presence or printed materials or by suggesting keynote speakers or specific thematic sessions.

Special conditions are also available for Research Projects which wish to hold meetings at INSTICC events.

Current Academic Partners:


EUROSUNMED is a 4-year collaborative project supported by the FP7 Programme of the European Commission. The scientific targets of the project are the development of new technologies in three energy field areas, namely photovoltaics (PV), concentrated solar power (CSP) and grid integration (GI), in strong collaboration with research institutes, universities and SMSs from EU and Mediterranean Partner countries, Morocco and Egypt.


Mobincity is a project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (ICT for fully electric vehicles).


SMARTV2G is a project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme.


MERITS is an R&D project supported by the European FP7 program with the aim to build a prototype of a compact rechargeable heat battery.


ECO2Clouds is an FP7 EU project that develops methods, guidelines and technology for enriching cloud computing with means to take into proper consideration ecological concerns, such as energy consumption and CO2 footprint.


CIVITAS has helped introduce numerous innovations and measures that have already made transport more eco-friendly in over 60 European metropolitan areas dubbed 'demonstration cities'. Thanks to an EU-funded investment of well over EUR 200 million, the project has guided cities to introduce improvements in four phases of the project, each building on previous successes. Examples include a public transport ticketing system in Tallinn, Estonia, a 100% clean bus fleet in Toulouse, France, waterborne goods transport in Bremen, Germany and a new traffic control system in Bologna, Italy.

e-SAVE—Energy Efficiency in the Supply Chain through Collaboration, Advanced Decision Support and Automatic Sensing

The e-SAVE project aims to contribute to an energy-efficient supply chain by providing the system, services, collaboration platform and management tools that will help companies monitor, manage and share energy use and carbon footprint data in order to support operational as well as strategic decision making and supply chain design decisions.
