Certification-D: "Mid-Term Conference" at half-time

The first half of the project period for the Interreg project "Certification-D" has been completed. For the Mid-term conference, the project partners met after more than 1 1/2 years at a face-to-face event in Düsseldorf. Only a few participants joined the conference online.

During the internal partner meeting, the results of the partners' work in the first half of the project were presented and discussed. The programme in the evening – which provided ample opportunities for networking – was rounded off by a guided tour of Düsseldorf's old town and a dinner in the Medienhafen.

Due to Corona, the project partners had only been able to exchange information online for a long time. Various working groups have been meeting regularly in various video conferences since the beginning of the pandemic. So it was all the more exciting for the participants to finally meet "face-to-face" and get to know each other better.

The second part of the partner meeting was the participation in the anniversary conference of the EAGP (European Association of Geriatric Psychatry), which was also the Mid-term conference of the project. Certification-D was integrated into a top-class speakers' programme, which conveyed the latest findings from medicine and research on the topic of dementia over two days.

The conference was presented as a hybrid event. In particular, Certification-D's partners were present in person, while more than 70 medical professionals, scientists and interested parties followed the conference online.

GGT training manager Marcus Sauer (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gerontotechnik mbH), together with project manager Daniel Zerweck (Alexian Research Center Krefeld) and Francesca Toso (TU/e Eindhoven), presented background information on the certification process and the currently running "Voucher Wave" for small and medium-sized enterprises.

The congress was organised in cooperation with Certification-D's sub-partner EAGP. Information on the EAGP and the Congress can be found here.
