Conference on the Future of Europe: Vision of Croatia

To kickoff the Conference on the Future of Europe, the Office of European Parliament in Croatia and the Croatian Parliament have organized a thematic event called  "The Conference on the Future of Europe: Vision of Croatia" . The emphasis of the event was placed on digital and green technologies, promoting successful stories and discussing a more equitable economy and education.  UNIZG FER's Center for Artificial Intelligence , represented by professor Loncaric, was invited to showcase its efforts to digitally transform the Croatian society. Professor Loncaric was accompanied by  LARICS team (professor Kovacic, Frano Petric and Ivan Hrabar) and our robot Pepper  that became the first robotic member of the Croatian Parliament by interrupting the talk of Gordan Jandrokovic, the Speaker of the Parliament ( Pepper, MP  ). Pepper also had a more amicable interation with professor Loncaric, who used the opportunity to invite companies from Croatia to contact the Center for Artificial Intelligence to discuss the transfer of technologies being developed at the Faculty. The event generated a lot of interest in the media (PRESS section), so the invitation of professor Loncaric will hopefully spark some future collaborations with the industry.
