Aims & Objectives

The goal of the ICT-Energy project is to create a coordination activity among consortia involved in the ICT-Energy field with specific reference to bringing together the existing "Towards Zero Power ICT" community organized within the ZEROPOWER project, and the novel "Minimizing Energy Consumption of Computing to the Limit (MINECC)" community.

The coordination activity is aimed at assessing the impact of the research efforts developed in the groups involved in the different consortia and proposing measures to increase the visibility of ICT-Energy related initiatives to the scientific community, targeted industries and to the public at large through exchange of information, dedicated networking events and media campaigns.


The ICT-Energy consortium is the result of the convergence of the MINECC and the Towards Zero Power ICT communities into a wider community. It is composed of ten partners from several EU countries, each one representing a specific EU funded project. Each of these projects comprises at least three groups doing research on ICT. This makes our community a wide and multidisciplinary research core covering many topics: fundamental physics, semiconductors, embedded systems, software and high performance computing.
