Introduction Week (Virtual) 14. - 16. September 2020
The first MORE training week was organised by Tampere University and held online to bring together representatives from the MORE Beneficiaries and Partner Organisations as well as the recruited ESRs.
Day 1 – Icebreaker
The first day of the meeting focused on introducing the project and the MORE ESRs. Each ESR prepared a three minute presentation to present their individual projects. The participants gave feedback on the talks and had the opportunity to ask questions. The company partners Deere, Liebherr and HIAB also introduced their organisations and roles in the project.
Day 2 – Automation and Autonomy: Today and Tomorrow
The second day consisted of further company introductions from Bosch Rexroth, Volvo, Novatron and GIM who are all involved in the MORE project. Presentations on mobile and autonomous mobile machines were held to bring the innovations being researched in MORE closer to the ESRs.
Day 3 – Dialogue
The final day of the meeting aimed to facilitate creating a dialogue and networking between the participants, especially the ESRs. For this, the ESRs received training on the principles of dialogue in action which is extremly important in online meetings. Afterwards, TAU organised online “sauna sessions” to bring participants together in smaller teams for deep discussions on the different ESR projects.
