The Project Management Institute (PMI) Luxembourg Chapter and the University of Luxembourg will be hosting their next event "How can Technology help Society, in a way that truly adds value?" on Tuesday 21 January 2020 at 17:30 at the Luxembourg House of Financial Technology (LHoFT).

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 twelve weeks in small teams of four to five people.

Students will once again 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. This year, they will look at how technology can focus on helping 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 twelve weeks!
