Cáritas Coimbra has a very strong role in this project, leading two work packages – at the level of co-creation and use cases, as well as validation of the solution in real context. It will also be leading some tasks in other areas, namely in the area of ethics, being Carina Dantas the President of the Ethics Board of the project.
This first launch meeting has as objectives the presentation of the partners, the introduction of the main objectives and the planning of the first year of work.
Cáritas Coimbra will have the opportunity to present the institution, as well as the work and actions that have been developing.
