The VICINITY co-creation workshop is a face-to-face session where students and researchers from disparate domains work together with the VICINITY team of experts to discover new value-added services and solutions.
Co-organisation of the event along with Yncrea, France Alena Scherhieva - chair of WG ecosystems at AIOTI and DG CONNECT
The workshop engaged many parties and projects participants working on topics related to interoperability, digital platforms and smart cities.
The scope of the event was to promote the technology developed in different projects by organising a hackathon with a set of problems to solve. Attendees should pick one technology and, with the help of the mentors, develop a solution for one of the problems exposed in the event.
VICINITY participated in the hackathon by mentoring attendees during the event. The main goal of the mentors was to provide technical support, lecture and teach how to use VICINITY components, and assist the attendees in the development of their ideas.
