SmartHeat was represented in the AAL Forum 2016 that took place in St. Gallen in Switzerland.
SmartHeat was extended presented in the University of Geneva booth in the exhibition area. Many people visited the booth where they had the opportunity to discuss further with the colleagues and learn about SmartHeat.
The prototypes that were available at the booth attracted a lot of people and we believe that SmartHeat was one of the most attractive projects in the exhibition.
SmartHeat's poster also was mounted for 3 days in the exhibition hall. Colleagues were also there meeting people and gathering feedback about the project, while also creating new exploitation opportunities for SmartHeat.
All the people from UNIGE, GLUK and terzStiftung during the AAL forum were also networking and building a stronger representation for the project.
Looking forward for the next AAL Forum, to present there, the new developments and the integrated version of SmartHeat!View Images from the AAL Forum 2016
