Engage summer school 2021 (virtual)

The third Engage summer school was held virtually 30 August – 02 September 2021, with almost 100 participants from 20 countries taking part. The programme was designed with a strong focus on the PhDs’ technical results (presentations are available below). Consequently, no time was devoted to tutorials on ATM concepts and research methodologies, as in the previous summer school editions, with more time devoted to PhDs presenting their near-final work and obtaining targeted feedback from the industry.
