From October 28-31, around 50 students from the Paris and Ecully campuses will be taking part in a new edition of the bootcamp, a workshop lasting several days organized every year by the makers' labs* of emlyon business school. The aim this time is to work on data physicalization, in other words, how to manipulate data and make it physical.

As every year, the bootcamp brings together students from the School's various programs (PGE, MS and MSc) to work in teams over the course of four days. The particular feature of this edition is that students from other establishments – the Lyon and Paris campuses of the non-profit school, 42, along with the Pôle Supérieur de Design of Villefontaine – will also be taking part. It's a way of demonstrating our willingness to hybridize skills in management, design and IT to deliver ever more innovative projects!

On the program for the 4 days:

  • 3 workshops: Understanding and manipulating data, materializing data in 2D and 3D.
  • A series of conferences given by data physicalization experts
  • An exhibition of the work produced by the makers' labs, after the bootcamps

With awareness of social and environmental problems being one of the School's key strategies, the students this year will be working on data about climate change in Europe since 1983. While the bootcamp will enable students to gain new skills, this innovative exploitation of data is also designed to provide a number of different insights into today's climate issues.
