On November 22nd, 2017 the 1st HEdIS Summer School started with a Welcome Event at the Summerstrand Hotel in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Students and some industrial partners had the opportunity to register early for our summer school and also exchange some words to get to know each other.
The first day of the Summer School (November 23rd 2017) focused on an introduction to IoT, overviews on sustainability topics (water, mobility and energy study cases), and a presentation on design and thinking approaches. After the experts’ sessions, the participants formed work groups, who picked one of the 3 given topics in order to manage and accomplish the tasks for the Summer School’s final assessment.
