UNIPA is the wp leader of the DIGITAL Academy within the Alliance. Contact Person: Valeria Floriano

Labs: creating multinational, multidisciplinary expert teams (researchers, students and societal partners), select challenge-based cases linked to the topic of the team, work on appropriate solutions and disseminate their work. Contact person: Sabine Hoffmann
