Five inspiring speakers, almost 300 curious participants and mainly a good mood full of fun and innovation in IT - such was the first year of the Funovation Con22 conference organized by Foxconn, which took place on Tuesday, 4th October, in the Auditorium of the University of Pardubice.
During the 4-hour conference, Sara Polak, Martin Vasquez, Tomáš Sova, Jakub Jech and Emmanuel Jefrey shared their knowledge and experience. Visitors could enjoy lectures on Cyber Security, artificial intelligence, presentation skills, improvisation and leadership. There were also students from the DELTA Secondary School of Informatics and Economics and the Secondary School of Electrical Engineering Pardubice, who presented their projects from the recent Funovation Hac22. The breaks between presentations were made more enjoyable by musicians from the jazz band MAR. The conference ended with a networking meeting and afterparty in the student club Áčko.
A big thank you to the city of Pardubice and Pardubice Region, specifically to Governor Martin Netolický, who sponsored the event. The conference would not have been possible without the cooperation with the University of Pardubice, which provided its premises and participated in the promotion.
"As part of the Funovation initiative in our company, we devise various activities through which we enable employees to improve processes, come up with innovative ideas and have fun at the same time. We are delighted that we managed to introduce this initiative to the general public this year. We are happy we organised this unique conference for students and industry experts. The speakers inspired the participants in various areas," said Radek Cerman, Manager of the Software Delivery team at Foxconn Czech Republic.
