Last week, 20-22 October 2015, the ICT event took place in Lisbon, Portugal. The ICT event was organised by the European Commission to present the new Commission policies and initiatives with regard to Research & Innovation in ICT. Overall more than 5000 delegates participated in the event including Commissioners Oettinger (responsible for Digital Economy and Society) and Moedas (responsible for Research, Science and Innovation) as well as the Portuguese President!
During the three days event, a conference, networking sessions, numerous parallel sessions and an exhibiton took place… and USEMP was there!
Positioned at booth i15 of the Innovation and Creativity Area of the exhibition, USEMP partners demonstrated the project and the USEMP tool – DataBait – informing users on the digital trail they leave when using services as Facebook or simply browsing through the internet.
While in all three days of the event and exhibition, people were passing by our booth and asking for more information, we were amazed when the winners of ICT 2015 exhibition were announced and among the featured 100 best-in-class results of European ICT Research & Innovation, USEMP booth was voted as the Best Exhibition Stand !
What an honor that was!
From all the partners of the project, thank you all for the support and soon you will hear more news from USEMP and DataBait!
