iWIDGET - End of Year Two meeting in Athens
Amazingly, two years have already passed since the iWIDGET project started back in November 2012!
On the 31st October and 1st November 2014, all partners gathered for the iWIDGET End of Year Two meeting at the National Technical University of Athens in Greece .
Day one of the meeting was a chance for all work packages to provides updates on progress. It also included an update on our cluster activities with our sister projects (collectively called ICT4Water), and our plans for the upcoming year. Year 3 promises to be a challenging one, with the live testing of the iWIDGET system now under way.
Our day concluded with dinner at Strofi – with its stunning view of the Acropolis. We all enjoyed the Greek cuisine (and wine) before retiring for the evening.
On day 2 we met with some of the volunteers involved in the Athens case study. Volunteers provided suggestions on possible improvements to the iWIDGET system, and their ideas on how to engage consumers and encourage them to be active participants in the study.
Overall, the meeting was a success. A big thank-you has to go to our partners in Athens for their hospitality!
