As the theme of the 2021 Bled eConference is Digital support from crisis to progressive change, the Bled Students Bazaar is specifically dedicated to applications and software-based solutions that transform people’s lives in a value-sensitive way. Think of apps that help patients to cope with their medication intake, that helps them stop smoking, which warn them if air pollution is endangering their allergy. But also think of software solutions for citizens that leverage (big) data smartly in a smart city context, for example enabling sustainable and healthy mobility choices, or think of software prototypes that demonstrate new business models, e.g. leveraging Blockchain technology. The possibilities are endless. But what really works? These are the key considerations of this call for proposals.
We call bachelors, honors, masters, and Ph.D. students in information, computer, organization, management, innovation, health, and related disciplines, from all countries, to write a proposal in which the idea is thoroughly described.
Submissions will be evaluated on different aspects such as business innovativeness, technical innovativeness, security and privacy, feasibility, and sustainable added value. When accepted, you will get invited to show and demonstrate the concept during the Students Bazaar session.
