ICT in Practice 2020

Fontys School of ICT

Derde editie symposium ICT in Practice

For the third time Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT organised the symposium ICT in Practice, this year on 7 February 2020.

ICT in Practice is a platform that gives space to applied research initiatives within the ICT domain and is based at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT community. Here they can demonstrate their findings, share knowledge, discuss results and launch new and future projects. In addition, ICT in Practice wants to contribute to the knowledge, understanding and vision of applied research.

The annual ICT In Practice symposium offers the community an inspiring program with lectures by experts, relevant projects and products, theme discussions and the opportunity to network with new and existing partners.

The theme of ICT in Practice 2020 was "In Bots We Trust" looking at the impact of bots on today's society. More than 50 projects by over 300 students could be viewed and tried out. And the day was filled with more than 20 lectures by experts from Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT, as well as speakers from companies that are partners of Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT and other knowledge institutions. The lectures can be viewed on the website of ICT in Practice where you can also find information from previous editions.

In this collaboration, a day bubbling with knowledge and inspiration was created in which it became very clear how collaborations between business and education reinforce each other.
