Pracademic (practice and academia) in nature, the summer schools are targeted at both practitioners and academics:

  • For researchers, there will also be proper paper sessions. All submitted papers will be published by the Journal of Enterprise Architecture upon peer-reviewing.
  • For students, the summer school can be part of ECTS-producing project work. The student pack hence includes an exam.
  • Practitioners can “go back to school” for a week to get new inspiration.
