AAL Forum 2015

23rd-24th September 2015, Ghent - Belgium

One of the final dissemination events of the SocialRobot project was the AAL Forum 2015. This year, the Consortium brought the SocialRobot platform (developed under the SocialRobot project and used as the base technological platform of the H2020 GrowMeUp Project (GA 643647) - www.growmeup.eu). 

The robot was displayed and a demo was presented during the event, gathering a lot of interest and allowed us to show the community the outcome of the SocialRobot project.
