The challenges of the Digital Sustainability Bootcamp

The Digital Twin Bootcamp 2022 organized by Campus Bio-Medico University in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo and other partners is over.                                     
In this fourth edition the focus was on the Digital Twin in various fields of application.

The challenge which is worth participating

Universities, companies, professionals, researchers and young graduates seeking for disruptive innovative applications to explore a central theme of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Digital Twin, the creation of digital replicas of objects o processes, such as an asset, a person, a place, a system or a device, which, using real-time data and algorithms, allow to study performance problems and generate possible solutions to be implemented in reality.
The Digital Twin Bootcamp 2022 of the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome explored all of this. The study program was held from 22 August to 09 September in phygital mode. Students were welcomed at one of Cambridge's most prestigious colleges Corpus Christi College.

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:

  • - Workshop
  • - 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 Internet of Things and Enabling Technologies and Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence addressed through real case studies provided thanks to 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, was awarded the “e-Bootcamp 2022” Award to the best project presented.

Why participate?

The training course, although short, provides multiple tools necessary to acquire the foundations of the Internet of Things and understand the main tools and methods of Artificial Intelligence. The course also allows you to develop soft skills that are in great demand in the world of work, such as the ability to work in a team and to adopt effective communication. 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.
