The challenges of the Digital Sustainability Bootcamp
It’s the third edition of the Bootcamp of the Campus Bio-Medico University organized in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo and other partners.
This year the focus is on Sustainability and Circular Economy.
The challenge which is worth participating
Universities, companies, professionals, researchers and young graduates seeking for disruptive innovative applications to guide business towards the most complex challenge of our time: the ecological transition.
The Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome - in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo and other partners - organizes the Digital Sustainability Bootcamp 2021.
The study program will be held from 23 August to 10 September digitally.
What would the Bootcamp educational experience be like?
The e-Bootcamp is an engaging and collaborative learning experience.
In just a few weeks, participants will learn and work as a team to add value through innovation. A full immersion in which teachers, researchers, participants, entrepreneurs and supporters shape a learning ecosystem, for the design and implementation of concrete solutions to a given problem.
Who is it for?
It is designed for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students, researchers and young professionals with a background in engineering and programming, available for a formative and professional immersion in the world of IT innovation to imagine beyond the obvious and experiment outside the known contexts.
The blended teaching modality
The teaching course suggests a reasoned sequence of formats:
- Group activities
- Practical exercises and learning experiences
All formats are set up on experiential learning that allows you to develop new skills and knowledge by applying them to the solution of real cases and problems. In fact, the didactic sequence includes a first phase of study and design followed by a hackathon to accelerate the concepts identified to reach the innovative solution capable of grounding the acquired skills. The contents of the individual teaching modules range from the areas of engineering, project management, business modeling, AI & Ethics, addressed with a view to developing soft-skills and enriched by the contribution of corporate expertise. The different geographical, cultural and study backgrounds of the participants add value to teamwork and sharing.
At the end of the course, the jury, made up of company representatives, will assign the “e-Bootcamp 2021” Award to the best project presented.
The training course, although short, provides multiple tools necessary to understand the drivers of sustainable innovation. The contact and analysis between the different visions of the companies present relating to the use of digital technologies and sustainable development will allow participants to learn and compare the various approaches and dynamics already implemented in the world of work.
Intesa Sanpaolo facilitates the participation by supporting the establishment of scholarships.
We believe in learning by doing
We think that this initiative is an opportunity with a double value: on one hand participants are able to enter a training course that enhances the mix of specialist skills; on the other hand, companies can find solutions they never thought of very quickly.
Moreover, the Digital Sustainability Bootcamp has the ambition to satisfy the aspiration of many young people who want to go beyond current business models to propose others with a positive impact on society. Participating in the Bootcamp is an important step to complete your training experience and move towards the future.
