Research Hackathon: Investigating the Role of AI in Higher Education

September 11 @ 8:30 - 17:00

«Research Hackathon: Investigating the Role of AI in Higher Education» aims at fostering collaboration among university researchers, lecturers and students. Participants will work together to define research projects that explore the application and implications of AI in higher education.

With insights from keynote speakers and guidance from mentors, attendees will explore how research can help to address the challenges and opportunities that AI brings to higher education. The event will culminate in a pitch session where projects will be evaluated by a jury panel, with opportunities for participating teams to be supervised further by one of the jury members and potentially apply for research funding.

The aim of the hackathon is to define research projects that investigate the impact and potential of AI in improving higher education.

All participants will be awarded certificates and receive special gifts. The Hackathon is organized by DSI Community Education.
