Visit to Brazil
David Frohlich visited Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) and University of São Paulo (USP) in São Carlos, Brazil between 9 – 20 April.
David gave talks in both locations, including a public lecture at UFSCar on 11 April entitled “From assistive technology to assistive media: Can digital media be therapeutic?”
David was hosted by Paul Castro in the Department of Geronotology at UFSCAR and Graça Maria Pimentel in the Department of Computer Science at USP. The visit was funded by the UK-Brazil network on assisstive media, to facilitate international collaboration on a number of ongoing projects. These include time matters and media parcels addressing dementia and loneliness through media technology.
