International visitors – via telepresence

Today, we had visitors at CM – all of them used our new robotic surrogate bodies. First, we had Dr Piedad Tolmos Rodríguez-Piñero from King Juan Carlos University (Madrid, Spain), later we also hosted Dr Chris Brownell and Prof Päivi Häkkinen from the Finnish Institute for Educational Research (Jyväskylä, Finland).

After discussing our prospective cooperation in telepresence robotics and didactics, we also took our quests to a small campus tour – some of us in our natural state, others using the robots.

This Thursday, we had a pleasant opportunity to host a meeting with a number of visitors from different countries, including Piedad Tolmos Rodríguez-Piñero from King Juan Carlos University, Madrid, Spain; Sirpa Laitinen-Vaananen from AMK University of Applied Sciences, Finland;Branko Andij from Johan Kepler University, Linz, Austria, and Simon Molnár from Óbuda University, Budapest, Hungary.  Most of our staff were also there, resulting in a lively discussion and some ideas for future cooperation.
