SEPT Alumni Winter School 2018 on Digital Innovation for Development

The International SEPT Program at Leipzig University in cooperation with the Master Program in International and Development Economics (MIDE) at Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (HTW Berlin) and the Master in Development Management (MADM) at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, realized the Alumni Winter School 2018 on the topic of "Digital Innovation for Development".

The main objective of the 3-day Alumni Winter School (November 5th – 8th) was to develop an innovative digital education and coaching concept which will be used to present and implement selected educational content from the three German partner universities worldwide. The expertise of our Alumni allowed us to come up with fresh ideas for online education, coaching and consulting in the field of sustainable economic development.
