This was the second time that the Dortmund IRC was organised online, due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Together with our partner DAAD InduTwin Project and colleagues from Latin America and China, we hosted the conference on Microsoft Teams. We brought together participants from 23 countries like Spain, Norway, Belgium, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Palestine, etc. to share and discuss the main findings of their research. All in all, 378 participants registered on our conference platform.
Nearly 60 papers were submitted, which were mostly shown with oral presentations and partly in video and poster formats.
The research topics included:
- Project Management, Quality & Sustainability;
- Digital Transformation;
- Applications of Engineering and Computer Science;
- Education, eLearning & Blended Learning;
- Digital Transformation in Health;
- International Higher Education Cooperation and COVID-19;
- Digital Transformation and Virtual Education.
In addition to this, we had several interactive activities, as keynote speeches, workshops on Project Management Research and Practice Journal and building a Solar car, and a game night, where the participants got to solve an escape game together.
