Summer School reflections

The Digital Economy Network would like to thank the Centre for Doctoral Training in Embedded Intelligence for hosting an amazing Summer School that took place between 3-6 July at Loughborough University London, within the Here East innovation complex.

We welcomed over 75 delegates, including 65 CDT students from various UK universities to the three-day event, who benefited from an excellent and varied programme of activities, which were delivered under the overarching theme of ‘Innovation insights for the Digital Workforce of tomorrow’.


Chira Tochia, the DEN Social Media Advocate, who delivered a workshop on the final day of the Summer School, has written an article for Loughborough University’s Doctoral College blog about the event, and you can read this here.

Chira also reported for the CDT in Embedded Intelligence – DEN Social Media Advocate Chira Tochia reports on ssei17.

Kate Green, Horizon My Life in Data CDT student at the University of Nottingham wrote a blog about the event, available here.

Research and the Digital Workforce of Tomorrow video

A group of CDT students who attended the film making workshop on 5 July, produced a video in line with the event theme, to tell the story of their research, and you can view the video here.


You can also view a selection of photos from the Summer School on the DEN Flickr page.


The hashtag for the event was #ssei17 if you want to catch up on the Twitter coverage. Tableau, who delivered the Beautiful Science of Data Visualisation workshop at the Summer School kindly produced an analysis of Tweets during the Summer School which proves interesting reading here.

Thank you to all those who took part, including delegates, speakers, workshop leaders, guests and the event organisation team.  #ssei17
