The CIP Malta National Contact Point within Malta Investment Management Ltd. and the Malta-EU Steering &
Action Committee (MEUSAC) organised the international seminar “ICT-enabled sustainability in smart cities”.

This information and networking event, which attracted over 140 stakeholders from 13 different countries,
including Senegal, India, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria and various European states, was addressed by the
Hon. Minister Dr. Austin Gatt, Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Communications, the Hon. Dr Chris
Said, Parliamentary Secretary for Consumers, Fair Competition, Local Councils and Public Dialogue as well
as by other high calibre speakers, including officials from the DG Information Society within the European
Commission. The full draft programme can be found below.

Malta, like the rest of Europe, is today facing the need to speed-up economic growth through higher
productivity, innovativeness and competitiveness, but in a manner that ensures a sustainable and rational use
of resources. ICT has now become one of the main infrastructures and an obvious enabler for the
achievement of long-term sustainability, within “smarter” societies. Malta’s size and geographical location, its
highly developed ICT infrastructure and commitment to sustainable growth, makes it a great “test-bed” for
new ICT solutions and infrastructure paradigms, and thus a “catalyst” for their expansion and development
into the Euro-Mediterranean region.

In this context, the aim of this event has been to provide information on the specific funding opportunities
existing under the 2010 ICT Policy Support Programme’s Theme 1 „ICT for a Low Carbon Economy and
Smart Mobility‟ and Theme 4 „Open Innovation for Future Internet-enabled services in “smart” cities‟.

The aim of this event has been to provide information on the specific funding opportunities existing under
themes 1 and 4 of the 2010 ICT PSP, as well as serve as a meeting place for representatives of public
administration, academia, business and civil society from across CIP member countries, giving them the
occasion to establish direct communication channels and set the base for joint projects and further
collaborations.

In two parallel networking sessions, each focused on one of the mentioned themes, participants presented
project proposal idea for which they are currently seeking participants or their organisation’s competences as
potential project partner.
