J. Abascal speaking

The Center for Studies and Research of the Faculty of Engineering (CEIFI) and the SINFOCI research group, held a seminar last July aiming to address the areas of Industry 4.0 and the design of accessible systems, with the participation of international researchers who arrived at the Universidad del Quindío to share their expertise in these fields. During the meeting, Professor Philippe Aniorté of the University of Pau and the Countries of Adour (UPPA), France, spoke on the most relevant features of the Industry 4.0 concept, socialized the avant-garde issues that have been working at UPPA and shared details of the double master's degree that is currently being signed with the University of Quindío. Likewise, Professor Julio Abascal of the University of the Basque Country (UPV / EHU), Spain, shared the experiences of his “Egokituz” laboratory, related to the design of accessible systems, considering the challenges for different types of population, especially for those with physical, sensory or cognitive needs or limitations. During his presentation, Professor Abascal presented aspects of the most recent advances in his research in that area, and a space was established to crystallize cooperation ties between both universities.
