Item: Productive Sevilla meeting

Our final year project meeting in Sevilla on December 20-21th was mainly devoted to taking stock of the situation with a view to next year, in which the end-user pilots of the platform and its mobile devices will take place.

On the first meeting day, technical partners presented their working prototypes and discussed the planning for upcoming releases and features, together with the end-user partners. Then the end-user pilots, which will take place in two periods and might contain an extended number of pilot groups, were discussed thoroughly. The day concluded with a discussion of practical technical issues which should be tackled in the coming weeks.

The second day was devoted to dissemination, exploitation and business model. Now the pilots get closer, it is important to intensify information sharing with other initiatives even more and start paying attention to exposure through social media. After a successful first AAL business modelling workshop in October in Brussels, it was decided to organize a second workshop in March. Already, some partners are exploring the possibilities of joint exploitation.

Many thanks and compliments to our hosting partner ISOIN. All in all, this inspiring two-day meeting showed that again many steps have been taken to get all partners closer and closer to our jointly goal: a social network for citizen empowerment and care support in local communities.
