The Active and Assisted Living Forum is the key platform to exchange ideas and comments in the AAL circle. It is a great place to present and discuss activities and projects in progress and foster collaboration. The STAGE partners submitted a proposal to participate to the AAL Forum’s poster session, a window where entities belonging to this research field could show the projects they have been working on through – indeed – an informative poster. The STAGE Consortium aims at showing the project’s idea and objectives along with its state of the art up to the Forum. The poster will be presented by the National Research Council’s Institute for Construction Technologies, Italy.
The first official meeting of the STAGE Project partners took place in Rome on 1 March 2016. The meeting was hosted by the Project Coordinator: the Institute for Construction Technologies of the National Research Council of Italy.
The participants discussed a wide range of issues about the STAGE project, among others, the project schedule, the action plan, the market exploitation, communication strategies and acti-vities, and expected success factors. The report of the kick-off meeting was prepared and sent to the European Commission as a project document.
