    Going Green – CARE INNOVATION 2014

    Towards a Resource Efficient Economy

    Vienna, Austria

    November 17-20, 2014.



    This biennial conference, which travels between Europe, North America and Japan, will attract more than 400 experts from all over the world. This Symposium is the only platform for presenting the up-to-date progress on sustainable development and the development of eco-efficient electr(on)ic & automotive products.


    The conference will provide a platform to discuss the latest progress on:

    ·          Resource Efficiency

    ·          Beyond Legal Compliance & Global Harmonization

    ·          Sustainable Products and Services & Leading Edge Technologies

    ·          Corporate Social Responsibility & Management

    ·          Energy-efficiency & Climate Change


    All companies in the electr(on)ics, automotive, solar and PV, chemical and recycling industry, power suppliers, electricity generators and distributors, contract manufacturers, material and component suppliers, service and logistic companies, collective systems, academia, consulting and public authorities (local, regional, international) are invited to attend and contribute!



    The conference will again take place in the Apothecaries' Wing of Schoenbrunn Palace. Together with its ancillary buildings and extensive park it is by virtue of its long and colourful history one of the most important cultural monuments in Austria. Scheduled as a listed monument, the whole ensemble, including the palace, the park with its numerous architectural features, fountains and statues and not least the zoo – the oldest of its kind in the world – was placed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List in 1996.


    Sponsoring Going Green – CARE INNOVATION 2014 provides you the perfect opportunity to reach executives of producers (OEMs and CEMs) and their suppliers, retailers, large users, logistic and software companies, national and international government officials, trade associations and collective systems, recyclers, consultants and academia.

    We are happy to develop with you the tailor made solution that fits you best. Please get in contact with me to benefit from the very beginning!

     Future Intelligent City initiatives are already making a contribution to solving some of the world’s most challenging engineering problems stemming from rapid urbanisation, high energy demand, and increasing/ageing populations, to ensure both economic growth and environmental sustainability.

    Whether you call them Smart Cities, Future Cities, Intelligent Cities or Future Intelligent Cities the aim is the same; to optimise the use of new information and communication advances to improve life in urban environments.

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is ideally placed to encourage cross-sector learning among technologists, researchers, engineers, policy professionals and local governments across the IET’s five core sectors, Built Environment, Energy, Transport, Information & Communications and Design & Production.

    This exciting multi-stream conference will provide a platform to promote the technology behind recent and future developments as well as the critical system integration between industry sectors to create that ‘system of systems’ necessary to achieve thriving, sustainable cities with an improved quality of life.

     Get in touch to take part

    The conference programme is currently under construction and further details will follow in due course. In the meantime, if your organisation would like to get involved by speaking and / or supporting this exciting event, please email your suggestions to the Event Producers, Maggie Copping and Ching Wan.

     Calling academia and industry – submit your original R&D or innovative work for a chance to present alongside established invited speakers.

    This is your opportunity to contribute to the programme by telling us about your latest research, development; or case study application relevant to future intelligent cities.

    Abstracts will be peer reviewed and accepted authors will be asked to present at the conference.

     Technical scope

    The organising committee are encouraging authors to submit a 200 word abstract from, but not limited to the following topics and themes:

    • 03 May 2015
    • 07 May 2015
    • La Rochelle, France

    " In May 2013, many scientists attended to the 2nd International Symposium on Green Chemistry (ISGC-2). This scientific event was a real success with more than 550 participants (including 21% from industry) from 37 different countries. Through 150 conferences/oral communications and 330 posters, ISGC-2 provided a large focus on the past, future and challenges of Green Chemistry and received fantastic media coverage. ISGC-2 was the international rendez-vous for green chemistry in 2013.

    Under the impulsion of many industrial and academic delegations, we decided to organize a novel edition. In this context, on the behalf of the International Advisory Board, the Organizing Committee warmly invites you to participate to the 3rd International Symposium on Green Chemistry that will be held on May 3rd-7th 2015 in La Rochelle, FRANCE.
    On the continuation of ISGC-2, a key objective of this third edition is to provide an environment that facilitates widespread interdisciplinary communication. To this end, ISGC-2015 should offer to public and private scientists an ideal platform for sharing fundamental knowledge with industrial research and development.

    We hope you will enjoy this unique moment to share your vision about green chemistry with other countries and to contribute to the emergence of new and sustainable processes for a greener world.

    We look forward seeing you at this occasion in this beautiful part of France,

    Sincerely yours."
