Description and Aim
The ICT with Industry workshop brings together scientists, in particular (junior) research staff and PhD’s, and professionals from industry and government, to face and resolve complex study cases. The workshop revolves around 5 concrete case studies, which are subject to an intense week of analyzing, discussing, modeling and accelerating solutions. The Lorentz Center stimulates an interactive atmosphere, encouraging collaborations between participants. This format typically generates extensive debates and enables significant progress to be made during the meeting.
The main aim of the workshop is to increase the collaboration between science and industry. The workshop strives for direct and rapid interaction between ICT researchers and industrial partners. It has the following objectives:
● To stimulate contact between ICT research and industrial R&D, by identifying and analyzing challenging problems and emerging technologies in multidisciplinary teams.
● To obtain creative solutions for industrial problems and to find new approaches that could lead to such solutions.
● To give insight into the wide range of possibilities ICT research offers (primarily to industry, but also to the general public), and thereby enable accelerated innovation.
● To enrich the PhD students’ and postdocs’ experience in collaborating with industry.
