During the project we have organised three workshops for people with Down syndrome and their carers from other European countries. The purpose of the workshops was to involve other European countries than those participating in the project, to convey the ideas about the project as well as get requirements for apps and technology.
In addition to these international workshops, the project has organised several local workshops in each participating country with persons with Down syndrome and their carers. The purpose of these workshops, was to co-create the POSEIDON-system together with the intended users.
