In the Framework of ALCUE NET project, the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT-Finland) and the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT-Chile), will organize the thematic workshop on Information and Communication Technologies next 19th and 20th of March, in the headquarters of CONICYT, located in Santiago, Chile. The objective of the Thematic Workshop is to elaborate recommendations for the ALCUE NET Concept Note to be proposed to the Senior Officials Meeting (SOM). The Concept Note will recommend ICT priorities for the national science, technology and innovation agencies to fund. The two topics which will be discussed in order to develop these recommendations are: e-Inclusion, with emphasis on e-Health for remote areas, and Smart Cities.

The workshop will also be an occasion to identify research topics in ICT of mutual interest, in the light of future funding opportunities, as well as exploring the possibilities of greater coordination of research initiatives and national funding instruments.
