After eight Modules, 28 lectures, dozens of module assignments and world-renowned lecturers – the long-term high-level online course “ICT Innovations for Development”, organized by Ong 2.0 , within the programme “Innovations for Development”, with the strategic and financial contribution of Fondazione Cariplo and Compagnia San Paolo, is approaching to the end of its journey.
This journey, that has started on November 2016, will be concluded on 10th April 2017 with online Public Barcamp – a key moment where course participants will showcase and present the exciting work that they have developed during this period. Since March 2017, the 23 selected participants, among 480 applications that arrived from across the world, have worked, continuously for one month, in different real-life projects that were given to them by six italian NGOs that operates in different worlds’ contexts, aiming to develop ICT-oriented solutions for their challenges.
We would like to invite everyone at our online Public Barcamp which will be held online as our hardworking course participants unveil their Final Projects in a Public Barcamp.
This event marks the conclusion of the 2nd edition of the “ICT Innovations for Development” long-term online course, which aimed to support the theoretical and practical development of participants in the field of Information and Communications Technologies for Development, as well as support their critical thinking towards existing initiatives, methods and tools; and enhance their ability to develop, adopt and re-appropriate various technologies and social innovation methodologies for local, national or international development.
Public Barcamp’s esteemed Judging Panel (we will be discovering the names of Judging Panel very soon!) will have to take a decision and select the most advanced project, which will receive a seed-funding up to 2.000 euro.
Don’t miss out on this chance to cheer on the participants of the “ICT Innovations for Development” long-term online course!
