About

WebValley is the FBK summer school for dissemination of interdisciplinary research: almost 400 students (17-18y old) have attended the WebValley camps since its first edition in 2001. WebValley started as a regional initiative for high school students from Trentino Alto-Adige SüdTirol, and it is now an opportunity for national and international students to experiment scientific research.

The WebValley formula: Create a team of enthusiast and motivated high school students (18 y) tutored by researchers.

Mission

Mission

In 2022 the team of about 20 students, supported by FBK researchers and other tutors of international level will delve into a project of AI for a widely distributed air quality assessment, exploring possible relation patterns between the pollutant agents distribution detected by diverse sensors based on different technologies, in collaboration with FBK centers Sensors and Devices and Digital Health & Wellbeing (Research Unit Data Science for Health).

Applications are now open!

How it works

The team accepts a challenge by a collaborating scientist from Ecology, Biology or Social Sciences and develops in three weeks a new web-based prototype for data analysis and management. The school strongly encourages the participation of all genders and various backgrounds.

Students are introduced to Open Source software solutions (scientific programming, web interfaces, database, GIS and data analysis); they discuss, design and develop the new system interacting with scientists. They learn to select tools, organize their own workplan, and respond with a new solution to a problem of ethical interest. A working prototype web solution and technical results are presented at the end of the three week period.

The project activities are developed mostly in teamwork as in a true research environment, that is informal and of high quality in resources, competence and organization. Each student can differently contribute to project with ideas, software code or data preparation, design of new web interfaces, project presentation.

Fellowships are sponsored by FBK and partner organizations, covering tuition and accommodation, as well as computing and scientific resources. Families can be asked for a contribution for sports and social activities organized on weekends.
