New milestone for the EULiST project: first local workshop held on March 23
IMT also hosted the first EULiST local workshop on Thursday, March 23. The workshop was an opportunity to bring together members of the IMT community who are involved in the project, including participants in the Work Packages, and welcome representatives from two EULiST partner universities, LUH in Hanover and LUT in Lappeenranta. Markus Auditor, the central coordinator for the EULiST project, also helped organize the workshop.
On the LUH side, professor Dr. Christina von Haaren, Vice President for International Affairs and Sustainability, and member of the EULiST Management Board, took part in the discussions and visits, along with professor Dr. Maria-Esther Vidal, head of the Scientific Data Management Research Group at TIB.
On the LUT side, IMT welcomed professor Dr. Jari Hämäläinen, Vice President for Research and Innovation and member of the EULiST Management Board, who also took part in the day’s activities.
In the morning, the EULiST project participants met and discussed the implementation of EULiST within IMT. Issues of common interest included digital transition and the ecological transition, which are central to EULiST and IMT strategies. The workshop was also an opportunity for IMT to showcase its unique expertise and strengths in the various project areas (research, education, online learning, international mobility, corporate relations, incubators etc.) to European partners.
The afternoon was devoted to a tour of the Institut Mines-Telecom Business School (IMT BS) and Telecom SudParis campus (TSP) in Evry, to provide concrete examples of the work being done by the IMT community. IMT BS and TSP welcomed the delegation and presented their activities and facilities (international relations, research, Living Lab, digital library etc.).
The day provided an opportunity to discuss, brainstorm and work together to plan the next stages for the project, with two of the nine EULiST partners.
