Online Workshop on Technology Transfer for the Arctic Region



On October 14, we are launching a series of online events within the framework of the DIT4BEARs project.

The Technology Transfer workshop will introduce participants to each other and will be the first in a series of hackathons and online internships.

The speakers will be representatives of Rostelecom, beta, Information Security center Shartrez, SINGULARIS LAB (Russia), Smart Innovations Norway, Compodium (Sweden) companies, and the government of the Arkhangelsk region as well as partners of the project such as Lulea University of Technology, ITMO University, the Northern (Arctic) Federal University, RUSSOFT, UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and Lapland University of Applied Sciences.

They will talk about both the cases of the DIT4BEARs project and the prospects for students and young professionals in the partner companies.

The next event of the project will be an online hackathon (October 29), during which registered teams will compete, working on the proposed cases. Members of the top 5 teams will have the opportunity to do an online internship at a selected company (by the end of 2020) with the prospect of further employment.

The cases developed within the framework of the project are related to tasks relevant to the Arctic region. In particular, we are talking about blockchain-based electronic identification, smart garbage collection, transport security, and deer farming. However, our cases are not limited only to these topics, and industrial partners will offer their tasks in the field of information technology to be solved at the hackathon.
