*ICT: Information and Communication Technologies
The KA203 project "Training of future ICT experts based on the needs of the Intelligent Society (SmartSoc)" is managed by a consortium of twelve universities from nine EU countries, coordinated by the University of Žilina. The main objective of the SmartSoc project is to create and implement an intensive, interdisciplinary study programme in the field of ICT-based entrepreneurship, taking into account the transnational and intercultural context. This project will enable teams of ICT students to address economic, societal and environmental challenges.
SmartSoc will bring together students from the 12 universities to work, first remotely and then during a 2-week seminar on an innovative project.
SmartSoc brings ICT expertise related to the needs of the smart society, with a particular focus on entrepreneurship and skills related to the evaluation of business perspectives and societal implications of the proposed solution, with an intercultural perspective.
