2013-09-23 Virtual Meeting on Task 6.4: Methods, Data Collection and Pre-evaluation Results
On September 17, 2013, a virtual meeting between our partners from Lund University and Örebro City Council took place, in order to discuss methods and data collection as well as to get an overall picture of the results of the pre-evaluation. The pre-evaluation is intended to document improvements in the users´ conditions, comparing before and after using the system. As instruments for the evaluation, interviews have been conducted with potential users, physiological data has been collected and a journal of daily activities during one week has been requested and collected.

A follow-up is scheduled for October 2013, after the GiraffPlus system has been deployed in Örebro, Rome and Malaga.
