How can Technology help Society, in a way that truly adds value?

Every year, the students of the Master in Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Luxembourg, are challenged to demonstrate that it is possible to innovate in 12 weeks -> effective +/- 12 days in small teams of 4 to 5 people.

This year the students will share their results and learning experience on this challenge, especially on how to manage short deadline projects with limited resources, and still deliver an end user product.

The main subject of this year is; How can Technology help Society, in a way that truly adds value? We see, more and more, how technology automates manual work increasing efficiency and generates fast revenues. The question is, could technology focus again on helping the society?

Presentations will include smartwatch solution to help deaf-blind people to communicate, tools to share food or rent clothing, app to help users to recycle product correctly and quickly, and 3D printed ecological glasses for everyone. All built in 12 weeks!!!
