Summer School: Empowering Data for Social Good


The 2024 edition of the SoBigData summer school focuses on how data can be used for social good, and this topic is explored around five different thematic areas: European Framework and Communities, Trustworthy and Ethical AI, Ecology and Green development, Health, Technology, and AI.

Attendees will be allowed to work on personal projects with the support of tutors. A dedicated panel will then evaluate these projects at the end of the school. This organisational structure allows attendees to benefit from broader keynote speeches, and topic-based talks alongside sessions that will allow attendees to progress in a project of their own choosing by relying on tutors from different partners of the SoBigData Research Infrastructure.

The Summer School will also feature social events organised with the intent of promoting network creation among attendees and with speakers.
