Annual Digital Economy Summer Schools have been running since 2010, and from 2014 have been delivered as part of the DEN Large-Scale Shared Events theme, with a different CDT hosting the residential event each year.
The aim of the Summer Schools are to bring as many different CDT/PhD students together at once, as well as to engage the wider Digital Economy PhD and researcher community. Summer School programmes will be developed in such a way as to maximise student interest, engagement and collaboration opportunities.
These events are held in early – mid July over a three day period. DEN provides funding of £7,000 to the host university towards the delivery of the event.
