On 28th November 2016 the University of Sheffield will host the national Assistive Technology (AT) conference in Sheffield to showcase AT related research and service innovation across health, education, employment and daily living. It will take place at St. Mary’s Church and Conference Centre, Sheffield. Previously known as the Recent Advances in Assistive Technology and Engineering Conference” RaATE has run successfully for over 10 years and this year we are relaunching under the banner of “T4I” (Technology for Independence).
We are delighted to welcome our plenary speaker from the Netherlands: Luc de Witte, a leading researcher in the field of assistive technologies, is Professor of Technology in Care at both Zuyd University of Applied Science and Maastricht University, He is also Director of the Centre of Expertise on Innovative Care and Technology (EIZT), a regional innovation network with around 40 partners (health care organisations, 3 universities, SME’s, local and regional governments).
Health and social practitioners from the UK will be networking at this event to find out more about new AT products, some of which will be available for demonstration. Contributions from the educational domain are also very welcome to highlight synergies. This engaging conference aims to have a good balance between practitioners and academics engaged and interested in innovations aiming at improving technology and services.
If you are interested in presenting your work at this event, please submit your abstract by 5th September 2016.
