Students and young researchers will have different roles at ICT2013:
Thursday is dedicated to finalists from the Student ICT research project competition who have been invited to Vilnius to present their work with the best projects being judged and awarded prizes by a jury.
Friday will showcase local Lithuanian student ICT projects.
In the context of ICT2013, StartUp Lithuania will be organising a hackathon on challenges relating to Horizon2020. Participating students and young innovators will work in the students' area and be in contact with other teams working simultaneously in other cities in Europe.
The Lithuanian presidency has organised tours of local students to come and experience the ICT2013 event. They, with the help of Global Shapers Community, and Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs have also arranged for visits to local schools to encourage ICT skills and careers, and will kindly host a welcome event for the Student Ambassadors and ICT research project competition finalists before the conference starts.
