Finally, the DCEx project team had a chance to meet in person: our Spring School, which turned into a de-facto Summer School due to yet another Corona-related postponement, took place between the 30th ouf June and the 2nd of July 2021. For three days, guests from Sweden, Italy and Austria came to Germany in order to work on the DCEx project. Besides our workshops which took place at ZDE’s location in Westhausen, we went to the town of Heidenheim where our first Smart City Bootcamp will be taking place very soon. Stay tuned!
