Pharaon Final Conference & ForItAAL 2024

After 4.5 years of hard work, it was time for the final conference of the Pharaon project, which will officially end in November 2024.

At the Pharaon conference, the coordinators of the 6 pilots in 5 countries (Murcia, Andalusia, Italy, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Portugal) presented their results and success stories in the session Innovation in Action: Pharaon pilot results, which I chaired in my role as general pilot coordinator. This was really nicely organised, because next to the presentations of the pilot coordinators, we also saw short video clips where we heard from stakeholders themselves how Pharaon has impacted their lives. That was really inspiring! You can watch the clips in this playlist on Youtube:

The final conference was organised in conjunction with the ForItAAL, the Forum of Italian Ambient Assisted Living. This gave us the opportunity to also submit papers, and we were very happy that four articles got accepted and we could also present these to the AAL community in Italy. Kira Oberschmidt was the main author of all the articles, so she presented three of four.
