On Friday 22.11.2019, a television crew from the Italian channel La7 visited the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad. The crew interviewed me and other colleagues. The crew also also visited the university facilities and laboratories, such as the Mechatronics Innovation Lab (MIL) and the I4Helse arena. The crew was very interested in assistive technology for elderly people.
On the 26th of November 2019, I was honoured to represent the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad, and the Dept. of Mechanical, Electronic and Chemical Engineering at Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) at the H2020 upcoming calls on Robotics and AI: Information and Brokerage day. This was a good opportunity to initiate synergies with potential partners within the field of mechatronics.
