Fifth Greenedge Training Event

Home // 5th School @OULU (Finland)

Greenedge School no. 5, held at University of OULU on Sept. 4-8, 2023

The fifth Greenedge training event has been hosted by the Center for Wireless Communications (CWC) at the University of OULU, in OULU, Finland, in collaboration with the 6G Flagship Research Programme and under the guidance of prof. Marcos Katz.

As our project is coming of age, this training event was dedicated to soft-skill training to guide our fellows toward their next career steps. As such, several training seminars were offered, among which: a project writing seminar offered by the Greenedge coordinator, prof. Michele Rossi, a seminar on entrepreneurship offered by Chaperone, a lecture on 6G business development offered by prof. Petri Ahokangas from the OULU Business School and seminars on sustainable ICT from Dr. Marja Matinmikko-Blue (Research Director of Infotech Oulu Institute; Director of Sustainability and Regulation at 6G Flagship) and prof. Marcos Katz. Finally, a lecture on creative problem solving was given by prof. Barbara Arfè from the Department of Developmental Psychology and Socialisation at the University of Padova.

The event was enriched by visits to experimental sites, labs and facilities: to the unique OULU CWC/6G flagship research facilities on advanced 6G Mobile Networks and to the prestigious VTT research center, where Greenedge fellows had a chance to visit VTT facilities for printed electronics (towards truly sustainable ICT/IoT solutions).
