CHESS a success at the Innovation Convention 2014!

on .

The CHESS project was demonstrated with great success at the European Commission's prestigious Innovation Convention, which took place on 10 and 11 March 2014 in Brussels.

A CHESS storytelling experience was specially designed for participants of the Convention on tablets. This experience involved the visitors in the visit of a "mini-museum", reproduced on the booth.

The booth was very crowded throughout the two days of the Convention with many really enthusiastic visitors, including EC officials and the press.

A significant success for the CHESS Consortium, indeed!
