Outcome of OASIS Final User Forum and Scientific Advisory Board meeting

OASIS Final User Forum and Scientific Advisory Board meeting - Milan, 15-16 November 2011

After 4 years of activities, the OASIS project is coming to the end. To outline the main outcomes of the project, a final User Forum was organized in Italy, providing the opportunity to the technical partners of oasis to present the project’s outcomes and engage in discussions with the beneficiaries of the project: older people, their carers and experts in user needs. The OASIS User Forum took place on Tuesday 15th November, and started with a PLENARY meeting at the library of Buscate. Local officials were present (such as the major of Buscate, local service providers, etc.) and expressed their appreciation for the work conducted by the project consortium. The event gathered 80 participants from all over Europe and beyond (Italy, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria, UK, USA, Japan, Czech republic, Malta, etc.) and gave the invited beneficiaries and stakeholders the opportunity to test the OASIS applications and their online training modules, touching and using the devices and services developed by the project, discussing with the developers about their functions and potentials, and providing their final feedback. The next day, the Scientific Advisory Board meeting took place, involving a board of international experts, gathering their views and further advice on the applications, their interoperability and the possibilities deployment of OASIS beyond the project.

These events were successfully concluded, and have been captured in below videos and pictures gallery.
