Between 2019-2022, the consortium formed by University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest in partnership with the National Institute of Science and Technology in Lyon, the University of Milan, the University of Passau, and 4 corporate partners were involved in the implementation of the project “Future IT leaders for a multicultural, digital Europe” - FIT Europe Erasmus+ project (https://fit-europe.eu).
FIT organized 4 international seminars for master-level students, with speakers from various domains, backgrounds and from both corporate and research environments.
Each seminar was hosted by one of the four partner universities and dealt with the technical and societal implications of recent technologies – Big Data, Blockchain, IoT, and Assistive Robots. During each one-week seminar, students participated in interactive sessions on a variety of technical and non-technical subjects, enjoyed hands-on activities, and collaborated with corporate partners to develop interesting projects, explore new ideas, and answer challenging questions.
In total, 75 students from 4 universities, originating from 15 countries, participated in the 4 seminars. They were joined by 44 speakers and mentors from 22 universities and companies.
The project was disseminated in each of the four universities. In Bucharest, it was disseminated during the “Human Dimension of Artificial Intelligence” workshop organized by the International Center of Excellence in Artificial Intelligence@UPB.
All resources developed during the project are published online in the FIT Europe Multimedia Library https://library.fit-europe.eu.
