The eChallenges e-2012 Conference takes place in the Sana Lisboa Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal. This is the twenty-second in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission and hosted by national governments, which attracts delegates from leading commercial, government and research organisations around the world to share knowledge and experience, lessons learnt, good practice and innovation.

eChallenges provides a prestigious, international forum to share success stories and lessons learnt from applied Information and Communications Technology (ICT) related research at European level (FP7) as well as Regional, National and Commercial initiatives. International cooperation and discussion of commercialisation, exploitation & interoperability issues are key aspects of the programme.

The goals of e-2012 are to promote ICT knowledge sharing and innovation between commercial organisations, government agencies and the research community, exhange experiences about the current state of eAdoption at a sectoral, national or regional level and stimulate rapid take-up of Research and Technology Development (RTD) results by industry and in particular SMEs.


It is necessary for all participants to complete online registration prior to the event.


The Programme is based on a Call for Papers which closed in March 2012

The Programme combines strategic keynote presentations, technical papers, business and government case studies and workshops. The Final Programme is available online.
