Through the ‘New Collaborative Initiatives‘ theme, DEN has supported a flexible programme of specialist training and technology-focused, themed student-led events. This will build upon the culture of collaborative working already established in various disciplines such as Computer Science.
The new collaborative initiatives theme aimed to enhance the quality of training available to Digital Economy postgraduate students through activities such as:
- Technology-focused development activities such as Hack and Maker events.
- Open calls for collaboration focused particularly on encouraging student-led multi-CDT specialist training events.
- Bespoke DEN workshops running alongside other established conferences
