Brain – development – communication. The need for interdisciplinary support

  • On March 2, 2022, Harpo took part in the 1st Scientific and Training Conference “Brain – development – communication. The need for interdisciplinary support”organized by the Congress and Teaching Center and the Center of Medical Biology of the Medical University of Poznań. The aim of the conference was to create a forum for the presentation and discussion of positions, approaches, theories, paradigms, research results, as well as therapeutic solutions and programs. The event was attended by representatives of various scientific disciplines as well as practitioners involved in development and therapeutic work.

    It was a great opportunity to present GUIDed project at Harpo’s conference booth. Harpo demonstrated a working version of the system with all GUIDed services, what met with the interest of participants and visitors of the conference exhibition.

    The project is co-financed by the National Center for Research and Development (PL) as part of the Active Assisted Living (AAL) Program – Call 2019.
