Public events

To convey the QoE concept to a wider and non-expert audience, UOA gave a presentation in a public event organised by CityLab, an institution that is specialised in explaining the creativity and educational perspective of robotics to kids (ages 5+), challenging their interest on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) areas. The event took place on Sunday 27 November 2016, with a wide participation of students and their parents.

UOA participated in the Marie Curie Researchers' Night on 30 September 2016, where CASPER's concept was presented in a historical building of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in the centre of Athens. On the same day, WEST has participated in the public event "Pop-Up Shops", organized jointly with researchers of the University of L'Aquila and local companies as part of the parallel Researchers' Night event in L'Aquila. On September 29, 2017 UOA and WEST participated to the Marie Curie Researcher's Night event again.

UNIVAQ and WEST have organized a public talk on 15 December 2016 at the Center of Excellence DEWS in UNIVAQ premises, L'Aquila. The purpose of this event has been to present the key concept of CASPER project to students and researchers as well as the general public with an interest in this field.

IQUADRAT has organized a public event with the topic "Research Seminars about Opportunities and Challenges for 5G Cellular Networks". This event took place in the Open University of Catalunya (UOC), Barcelona, on 18 November 2016.

A workshop for the 20 years of the MSCA program for the career and mobility of researchers was held in Athens, Greece, at the premises of National Documentation Centre, on 14/3/2017. CASPER was there, sharing our MSCA experiences with the audience.

CASPER presented the concept of QoE during an open day event organized by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications on 24/11/2017. This event was mainly targeted at primary and high school students from all over Athens.

ADAPTERA organized two open events to advertise ADAPTERA's products and disseminate CASPER approach. The first event took place at ADAPTERA’s premises on January 31, 2017. The second one took place on the 1st of November 2017, where the CEO of the company gave a talk on CASPER's vision.

By participating in international forums and exhibitions, IQU promoted the achievements of CASPER. For instance, during IoT Solutions World Congress 2017 in Barcelona (3-5 October, 2017), IQU presented preliminary implementations of the CASPER testbed.

UOA and ADAPTERA jointly participated in the Marie Curie Researchers' Night in Athens, on September 28, at the Averof Building of the National Technical University of Athens, demonstrating CASPER's SONEX system to the general public.

Staff members of WEST together with members of UnivAQ have attended the Researcher’s Night Event in L’Aquila, on September 28th, joining the Univaq Street Science - La ricerca al centro event.
