In the afternoon of the seminar day, there was a networking hour built in a playful way, facilitated by the ever-energetic Trent Pancy.

From Tuesday to Friday (8.-11.10.2019), students from three countries (Finland, Germany, UK) started building demos and writing concepts for interactive television formats.
