In January 2019, members of the City Science team traveled to Andorra to further explore Andorra’s innovation opportunity to improve urban wellbeing. This four-day workshop marked the start of Innovation Challenge Andorra and focused on topics related to tourism, energy, and mobility. The workshop served as a way for the teams to reconnect, meet members and stakeholders, and to bring together members from the City Science Network.
Each day the event began with morning talks from researchers of Actua, OBSA, and the MIT Media Lab, in addition to talks from Andorran stakeholders. Each afternoon concluded with a brainstorming session in a set topic area as outlined below. By the end of the week the researchers had new ideas on how to move forward with datasets, innovation potential, and sensorized systems, to continue to explore the region and its challenges and opportunities.
