At iNOVA Media Lab, we currently nurture three main events aimed at internationalization, collaboration, and towards a more open public engagement in digital media research:

Digital Media Winter Institute / SMART Data Sprint: Held in the last week of January and the first week of February, the Digital Media Winter Institute has two moments: the SMART Data Sprint, and workshops that attend the digital methods approach. 

SMART Data Sprint is intensive hands-on work, driven by online data and digital methods. We adopt experimental and inventive ways of reading, seeing and analysing platform data, with the aim of responding to a set of research questions. For one week, participants will have the chance to attend keynote lectures, short talks, and parallel sessions of practical labs. After that, experts and scholars will invite participants to join projects and work on a collective problem.
