Local Training Workshop 1

Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow G1 1XQ

Concurrent and Collaboration Design Studio

19-23 February 2018

The first Local Training Workshop (LTW1) was attended by all UTOPIAE ESRs. While the Opening Training School used lectures as a way to teach, this workshop focused on implementation and problem-solving. Over 5 days, the ESRs were put into groups to solve a range of problems, looking at how to implement and apply what was learned at the OTS.

There workshop was divided between technical problem solving and skills & outreach training. Two days were dedicated to implementing their knowledge on optimisation and uncertainty quantification, one day to setup the Project Working Groups, one day for an outreach activity at the Glasgow Science Centre, and a final day of team building and collaboration skills training.
