Smart Technology for Smarter Living

26-29th June 2017 - Artimino, Firenze, Italy

This Summer School has been designed for early career researchers who are focusing on the research and development of technology based connected health solutions. The Summer School has a program of activities, both from a theoretical and practical perspective,  which will offer training in technology,  health,  social science and business topics.  

Over a period of 4 days, three strands of training will be delivered  to empower students with the necessary knowledge to understand and apply the concepts of Smart Technology at three different levels:

        Analysing user’s and service provider’s perspectives;

        Technological challenges and opportunities;

        Innovation and business perspectives.

This is a unique opportunity for early career researchers who are interested in the use of contemporary solutions for Smart Environments.  Training will be provided by a multi-disciplinary research and cross-sectoral team comprised of service providers, researchers, social and behavioral scientists, innovation managers and investors.

The Summer School will offer formal teaching, practical exercises and group discussions over a period of 4 days. It will adopt a highly participative approach which will emphasise group work cutting across participant presentations, round table and panel discussions and practical exercises.

Registration deadline 31st  March 2017
