On December 17th 2019, we organized an EMBEDDIA Open Day event at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) in Zagreb.

The event was attended by students and researcher community members from FER and the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb, as well as other professionals interested in EMBEDDIA and the research topics explored by the EMBEDDIA research partners.

We presented 8 demos displaying the work done within EMBEDDIA in the first year of the project. The event was a success, presenting an excellent opportunity for project presentation and interesting discussions for future work.

Below is a list of the demos and a gallery of photos from the event. Photo credit: Marko Pranjić.
