The SUSTE-TECH project's principle partner (and funder ) was JISC. JISC (Joint Information Systems Comittee) had funded a total of 36 research projects that examined the use of more sustainable technology and also how technology can aid the end user to become more sustainable in their behaviour.
Each of the 36 research projects were part of JISC's wider Greening of ICT Programme. The Greening of ICT programme was delivered via a number of strands of activity embedded in a structure of support, synthesis and benefit realisation activities. The programme sought to work closely with other teams and committees within JISC to ensure opportunities for synergistic work in research were grasped.
Key objectives for the programme included
Greening the sector, examining attitudinal and behavioural change embedded across the sector, new sustainable procurement paradigms, sustainability being seen as key driver and yardstick for sector activities and harnessing of sector research activities.
Intended outputs from this programme included
Substantive body of knowledge illuminating areas of uncertainty in respect to Green ICT and exemplar projects providing leadership and best practice examples.
Other outcomes from both the SUSTE-TECH and JISC projects included:
JISC's Greening ICT programme extended beyond the EAUC Suste-Tech project. Click here for archive information on other JISC funded sustainable ICT projects.
