The increasing use of location-based social networks and the huge generation of social geo-located data from mobile sensing devices have fueled an urgent need of understanding and analysing the interplay between geographic information science and social computing in order to design new approaches for collecting, representing, understanding, managing, learning, interacting, and reasoning about social geographic information. New challenges and perspective are open if we consider how data collected and analysed can be used for services such as transportation and urban planning. This webinar is dedicated to explore how social geographic information can be used for understanding human mobility dynamics. Two international experts, Dr. Ludovico Boratto from University of Cagliari and Prof. Zhenlong Li from University of South Carolina, will outline current trends, research challenges and opportunities created by the use of social media data for analyzing people mobility in urban areas and for measuring spatial social interactions. Date: 9 July 2021 Time: 3:00pm CEST | 9:00am EDT | 9:00pm CST Asia Webinar ID: 856 3693 7260 Webinar Secretariat: firstname.lastname@example.org
first Glaukos Stakeholder Labs workshop
CNR-IRPPS is organising the FORUM ON POST COVID-19 TOURISM. The main discussion session is organised on 15 of July 2021 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm CEST.Tourism is one of the sectors more negatively affected the by the Covid-19 pandemic. This crisis enabled us to learn some lessons and to understand that there is the need for a new tourism strategy in Europe and at worldwide level. This crisis can be an opportunity to rethink tourism, building the tourism for the future and a stronger, more sustainable and resilient tourism economy. First of all, we are interested in understanding what has been the impact of COVID-19 on the tourism industry, the lessons learned from a situation of emergency and, how starting from these lessons it is possible to give a new and innovative start to the tourism in general. It is very important to suggest action lines and strategies that enable market players and governments to cope with the challenges emerging for the tourism industry as a post-pandemic recovery and resilience building strategy. For this reason, in this forum we aim to discuss the opportunities and challenges that could emerge in the tourism field. During the forum discussion we aim to collect opinions from stakeholders from different perspectives and experiences and, also from different geographies (at the European level) to understand problems, challenges and opportunities as well the new trends in tourism like sustainability, how digitalisation has been used during the crisis and how it can stimulate and help innovative processes in the tourism sector. We invite to attend the event Citizens, Entrepreneurs, Policy-makers, Researchers and Scientists. Topics discussed during the forum: - Impact of COVID-10 on tourism field and lessons learned. - Resilience - Tourism, digitalisation, COVID-19 crisis and post pandemic management - Tourism recovery post-COVID-19. - Social, economic and environmental sustainability. - Governments measures and political role. - New emerging tourism trend and market niches (e. g. circular economy, green tourism, local tourism, etc.). - Communication strategies, social media role and online marketing. - Digitalisation as the driver of growth for tourism businesses.
Working space of the project partners of the B-Blue project
Dear all, welcome to the Working Group on Marine Renewable Energy (MRE). You are asked to participate in this Working Group as an expert in MRE, as a “giver” or “taker” of tools/outputs, or just interested in this sector and its potential. In the Main Folder are uploaded six pdf documents, in which are described the six thematic outputs of the Blue Growth Community’s projects. These documents are our community’s “proposals” for potential use by “takers/receivers”. We ask you to read them and write a post on what you believe is interesting for you for being transferred/capitalized. Any comment from your side will be useful and may help us move in the right way! You can also comment on our posts below, explaining your experience, your needs and expectations, asking for any support from us, etc.
