The consortium that forms the European project CounterRisk met last 15th March in what was the seventh transnational meeting of the project. This meeting took place in Alicante, at the Hotel Spa Porta Maris where AIJU hosted the rest of the members as project coordinator.
This international meeting addressed issues related to the last necessary adjustments to the NOOCs developed in the framework of the project, with a view to their upcoming completion. On the other hand, the next steps to be taken and strategies for the exploitation and dissemination of CounterRisk tools beyond the project were also established.
After the technical meeting, the partners and speakers made final preparations for the multiplier event on 16 March, where the project results would be transferred to the target groups.
3D case studies
In this regard, the 3D case studies that appear in the NOOC aimed at the children’s products industry were discussed. In order to make these courses interrelated, the augmented reality case studies will be the same: a soft toy elephant and a car seat.
What is new is the focus of the tasks and the elements that users will be able to visualise to verify the knowledge learned in the lessons with these case studies. Thus, in the NOOC for consumers, the case studies will focus on discovering whether counterfeit products are involved, and in the case of the NOOC for industry, they will focus more on what aspects manufacturers can protect in terms of intellectual property and industrial property.
The use of new technologies is one of the main lines of work of the COUNTERRISK project, which is why it seeks to promote learning through interactive and innovative tools for users, which they can use at any time from their mobile or tablet.
