Project Meeting and Workshop in Örebro

On the 9-12th of April 2019, the SOCRATES project partners convened in Örebro for the biannual project meeting and workshop.

As always, the meetings are an opportunity to meet up and get updated on what the partners have been working on in the past six months. Thus, the responsibles of the various work packages and the ESRs gave a presentation on recent activities and results.

The workshop took place on the 11th and 12th in the Ängen Research and Innovation apartment under the topic “Robots for older adults” and involved invited talks and seminars held by local and international researchers.  As the second part of the workshop, it was the ESRs’ turn to do some hands-on group work towards addressing a concrete scenario relevant to eldercare.
