The “Hack-my-town” Workshop takes the format of a challenge, a hackathon among Universities to find real solutions to “smart villages and territories” problems in terms of learning technologies and systems. The workshop is built following the hackaton format. It will take place in Glurns/Glorenza, a small medieval village in Val Venosta /Vinschgau (South Tyrol, Italy). Participants will experiment how “smart” a mountain village becomes, enabling synergy between university students and their professors, stimulating on the one hand the scientific discussion, and on the other hand a creative a environment where new conceptual solutions can be devised.
No enrollment fee, but just a limited number of places is available!
Students will be hosted (thanks to a unibz grant) in Glurns/Glorerenza from dinner on Sunday, December 21st to brunch on Tuesday 23rd December, full board.
Why Glurns/Glorenza ?
A bottom-up approach involving the local people and administration as well as an interest in applying the concept of smart city in a small community are our main objectives. See motivation
Glurns/ Glorenza is officially a town even though having only 882 inhabitants. The town is being surrounded by a medieval fortification that creates a very authentic atmosphere not only for the inhabitants but also for the visitors specially during the Christmas market (Glurnser Advent).
