More than a city!

General description

Milan 2015expo is approaching, and BEST Milan is welcoming it with the typical Italian passion and warmth. (Italians do it better, after all!)

Along with that, you'll spend ten wounderful days in the land of pizza and pasta, where people wave their arms while they speak.

So, what are you waiting? apply and have the BEST time of your life!

Content and topics:
The course will give a broad understanding of Smart Cities and what they really are, with discussions and different points of view and company visits.
Learning goals and objectives:
The SmartCities project has been going on for several years now, all throughout Europe, but not everyone really understands what's behind it. Beside the cool name, we want the participants to really learn all the implications of this project and understand how everyone of us can contribute in them. Since this is an European project we think filling this knowledge gap for EU students is a very important step towards responsible progress.
