EURECA Project Launch Workshop

Prior to Public Launch of EURECA at the Public Sector Show at London's EXCEL, this workshop is exclusively open to Public Sector guests and will examine what the UK government is doing to encourage environmentally sound purchasing choices and energy efficiency in UK data centres. The debate will look at what processes currently exist in the field, uncovering the barriers and sharing ideas on how the EURECA project can best serve to help address them.
