IES at Sustainable Places

By Erin O'Brien on Wednesday 6 June 2018

The 6th annual Sustainable Places international conference series kicks off in Aix-les Baines, France on 27th June 2018.

The conference gathers thought-leaders and sector influencers from leading organizations around the world to advance the state of the arts in science and technologies towards one of the greatest challenge that our societies and their urban planners have ever faced: The need to enhance the sustainability of places ensuring long-term environmental security. The event facilitates innovation pathways towards lasting market impacts, and has become a reference European event and proven platform where theory meets practice, unlocking clustering opportunities and new linkages between similar initiatives.
