Vienna, Austria, 13th December 2022

The 4th General Assembly of MED1stMR marked the half-time of the European project and was packed with presentations and knowledge exchange within the multidisciplinary consortium. Partners experienced two intensive work days at the AIT – Austrian Institute of Technology, located in Vienna.

Day 1 – Overview – Research – Technology

The first day started with freezing snow outside, but with a warm welcome inside. Helmut Schrom-Feiertag, the coordinator of the project, updated all partners with the latest developments. Then the research partners delivered a detailed overview of the different planned and executed studies. Based on this input, the field trials research set-up was thoroughly discussed with the partners from a research, technology and end-user perspective. An overview of the solution progress by the technical partners rounded up the day that was concluded with a common dinner.

Day 2 – Scenarios – Try-outs – Decisions

The second day started with a presentation of the assets planned in the mixed reality scenario and led to intensive exchange and valuable decisions on the next steps. Consortium members were able to test the prototype solutions of AIT and experienced mixed reality themselves. Technology was again viewed from different angles. The relevant next steps regarding dissemination and exploitation were presented, and the role of the end users within the field trials was discussed. Decisions on dates and locations were made. The day ended with relevant discussions on the preparation for the mid-term review, which will take place in January 2023 in Zurich.
