EIT Digital Summer Schools

Within cities, predictive analytics play a role in many different domains such as citizen participation, city resilience, prevention of pollution, managing risks, public transportation and private mobility. Predictive analytics provides a way to shape data into meaningful decisions. It uses data analytics to make predictions and generate strategic, operational assets.

Public authorities and private companies can benefit from these insights and provide better services to citizens. The Summer School programme will focus on the opportunities that data analytics can create for cities, citizens, and entrepreneurs in a wide range of user applications e.g. telecommunication infrastructure, urban logistics, tourism, security or social Wi-Fi.

This summer school is related to the Digital Cities action line - a focus area for EIT Digital innovation projects and business development with emphasis on mobility, information and safety in cities. A multidisciplinary approach including service design, urbanism, and social sciences is used in the summer school to provide an accurate understanding of the problems cities are facing and the means to overcome these, by developing sustainable business models.
