Campolide 2021 Challenge
The Campolide 2021 Challenge was launched by the borough of Campolide (Junta de Freguesia de Campolide – JFC) as the final project for the Smart and Sustainable Cities undergraduate course during the 2021 spring semester of NOVA IMS. It challenged the students to design data-driven solutions to a real urban scenario, with access to key stakeholders with the community, data provided by the local governing body, and open data regarding the city of Lisbon. Students were tasked not only with the application of smart concepts but to design interventions that were immediately implementable within the available resources of JFC, with a high potential impact on the community. 10 groups of students pitched their final projects to the President and Innovation Department of Junta de Freguesia of Campolide, the most promising of which was recognized and considered for further development and implementation.
See the results here.
This type of project is an excellent opportunity for the students at NOVA IMS to gain actual and practical experience in applying data science directly to their community. They can collaborate directly with the instructors on complex intervention design, draw on the resources of the NOVA Cidade lab, interact directly with community leaders, and deploy meaningful solutions to urban challenges.
