    ICT (Information & Communication Technologies) in H2020 has been integrated into different sub-programmes. This information event will provide you with an overview of ICT-related topics, such us : New generation of components and systems, Advanced computing, Future internet, Content technologies and information management, Robotics, Micro- and nano-electronic technologies, Photonics, ICT for manufacturing and Factory of the Future.
