Curious about other EIT Digital Summer School advantages?
Vinko Mlačić - It has been a month since I attended the EIT Digital Summer School hosted by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.
The theme of the Summer School was "Disrupting Finance with Digital Technologies". We received lectures about the most significant topics in digital finance from industry experts. My team and me had the daunting task of adapting online and mobile banking to the elderly.
I would like to thank the coach team (Alessandro T. and Balazs Horvath) that helped us a immensely with the I&E work and for their efforts in keeping the atmosphere light and fun with the social activities.
Although the format was remote, the organization of the Summer School did an excellent job at giving us the best possible experience. Furthermore, having an experience of working in a team remotely is definitely a plus in these times.
All in all, a great experience. The thing I am the happiest about was the opportunity to meet so many interesting people!
Léo Vuylsteker - University of Rennes 1's online Summer School on "Unleashing the Power of Circular City Data" was a great human (and learning) adventure that has now come to an end.
