Last September, the international event AAL FORUM was held at the EUSKALDUNA CONFERENCE CENTRE in Bilbao from 24th to 26th and IDEABLE, TECNALIA, IHOMELAB and EXTHEX, some of the partners from zocaalo participated there.
In fact, IDEABLE and EXTHEX participated in a workshop in the AAL Forum that was organized the 26th. In that workshop, both companies described the goals of the zocaalo platform and the main aspects of the certification process, as shown in the picture below.
The most interesting points for the audience were the possibility of getting help on how to design accessible apps for the elderly users and the access to possible end-users to test those apps before being launched to the market.
The zocaalo project was also presented in the booths from some of these partners, specially in the IDEABLE’S stand in which, apart from the visible roll-up of the project, many visitors could take some of the flyers describing the project and inviting developers from the AAL community to join our certification process.
But those were not the only moments dedicated to zocaalo during AAL Forum. In the hackathon HACK4ELDER advantage that took place in Bilbao too but the weekend before AAL Forum, zocaalo was one of the sponsors.
During that hackathon, zocaalo was present in two innovation pills: one by Javier Arcas from TECNALIA, presenting some of the most important guidelines on how to design accurate apps for the elderly people, and another one by Iñaki Bartolome, from IDEABLE, presenting the zocaalo seal and its certification process.
