At the poster session on the second day of the conference, about 20 people came to listen to the presentation of the project. Many have also expressed interest in following the project’s development in the future. It is worth noting that the purpose of participating in the conference was to find new partners and receive feedback that could move the project forward. The participants’ feedback will now be used in the next phase of the project, which is the actual development of the architecture and software.
