A² Programme: Smart City
Participants of the A² programme will deal with all the critical issues specific to their product, their company, and their respective industry in thematic sessions. The programme strikes a careful balance between theory, practice and networking, ensuring that there is enough time to take care of everyday business. The programme aims at enabling participants to apply the learned know-how to their own product, or service, and to improve it continuously in cooperation with their mentors and industrial partners.
