IoT & AI for Frugal Innovation 2024


We are pleased to present the IoT & AI for Frugal Innovation bootcamp for 2024.

The IoT & AI Bootcamp 2024 program will focus on Frugal Innovation. Fully aligned with sustainability and circular-economy principles, Frugal Innovation refers to the process of reducing the complexity and costs of new products, methods and designs that are created for, with or by people in developing countries. Designed in collaboration with academics and professionals, this is a short and effective 3 week course based on experiential learning and practical activities.
