Attracting Young Talents to Imagine the Detectors of the Future
Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, AREA Science Park, and INFN Trieste, in collaboration with ATTRACT, are presenting the Workshop-Hackathon “Ideas from the Young” event to be held in Trieste, Italy, on April 19-20, 2018.
#AttractYoung Hackathon aims to attract young talents to brainstorm together societal challenges of tomorrow and to imagine how to respond to these challenges, how to solve the problems and how to relief the pains using detector and imaging technologies of the future.
It is experience or user-driven: instead of starting with a new technology addressing future scientific or industrial challenges in detection and imaging, the #AttractYoung Hackathon starts with societal challenges that need to be addressed – or better – solved, by 2025, relying on detection and imaging technologies, which might not yet even exist.
The targeted participants are students, who are not necessarily yet familiar with detection and imaging technologies.
