On January 26, 2015, Cisco held its second-annual Academy Day at the Cisco Live! conference in Milan, Italy.

The theme of Academy Day is Internet of Everything for Social Innovation, and more than 1000 college-age students from Italy and elsewhere participated in activities like:

Also, for 44 hours, teams of students in Italy and Singapore will participate in a Hackathon for Social Innovation produced by Cisco Networking Academy. Their challenge is to create an application that uses collaboration technologies and networked connections to revolutionize the delivery of education.

The Hack-a-thon concludes on Wednesday, January 28 at 4 p.m. Milan time. Visit the Cisco Corporate Social Responsibility blog later this week to find out what happened!
