SYNERGY will participate in Sustainable Places 2020

SYNERGY project will participate next October 29th in the workshop Sustainable Digital Tools for All-Energy Actors within the Sustainable Places 2020 event. Together with four other H2020 projects, we will discuss digital tools developed in order to provide ICT services and functionalities to the different actors of the energy value chain, which will make them more sustainable and efficient. The SYNERGY big data platform and the innovative tools built on top will be part of this interesting topic.

Sustainable Places showcases results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme via the participation of cutting-edge research and innovation projects, the scope of Sustainable Places is captured directly in its name. It involves designing, building, and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way.

SYNERGY attended the 1st #energy Domain Workshop

Yesterday, Eva María Muñoz presented the data architecture of the SYNERGY project at the 1st Energy Domain workshop OPEN-DEI is an EU-funded project, that aims to detect

 gaps, encourage synergies, support regional and national cooperation, and enhance communication among the Innovation Actions implementing the EU Digital Transformation strategy.

The objectives of the workshop have been to establish links among the H2020 projects in the energy ecosystem dealing with data exchange and use case applications, and secondly, to set up working groups and joint actions and agree on plans for the upcoming period.

The workshop was held as a teleconference and was opened by Mark van Stiphout (EC) and Franck Boissiere (EC). The workshop has participants from 7 H2020 projects (amongst them SYNERGY) who have exchanged information about their projects and shared best practices.
