The Research and Innovation event ICT 2018 was co-organised by DG CONNECT of the European Commission and the Austrian Presidency in Austria Centre Vienna on 04 - 06 December 2018. It provided an opportunity for projects funded by DG CONNECT (based on a competitive call for proposals) and national governments to share their results. It incorporated a conference programme sharing insights into policy issues, sessions focused on specific Horizon 2020 Calls, networking sessions and an Exhibition sharing results from over 100 Horizon 2020 funded projects.
mHealth4Afrika successfully applied to organise for a demonstration stand in the Exhibition in cooperation with IST-Africa and was showcased during the IST-Africa Networking session focused on Building Research Partnerships addressing African Societal Challenges on Wednesday 05 December.
IST-Africa and mHealth4Afrika had a demonstration stand (Stand number: INCO7) in the International Cooperation section of the Exhibition on Level 1 in Austria Centre Vienna. There was quite a lot of interest, with many ICT 2018 participants visiting the stand during the event to learn more about African engagement in Horizon 2020, upcoming calls and to learn more about mHealth4Afrika activities.
