The SmartDest Ideathon challenges participants to develop viable solutions to address the main issues that have emerged across all 8 participating cities of the SmartDest project. The whole day is dedicated to the identification and refinement of innovative ideas, while creating synergies with other participants, in a dynamic and engaging way so that a diverse group of participants can share skills and insights with one another. The SmartDest Ideathon is a form of participatory, collective brainstorming that fosters networking and co-design with the ultimate goal of identifying specific actions and initiatives that address the problems of social exclusion -- caused by the new models of tourist and transnational mobility -- that emerged across all participating cities during the SMARTDEST research project.
This event will give also the opportunity of facilitating the formation of strong interdisciplinary teams that can make a successful submission into the MITdesignX Venice program. (Submissions are open until July 31, 2023)
