As is the case every year, the Trophées des Technologies Éducatives awards ceremony took place at the EDUCATEC EDUCATICE fair : our partner, l’Ecole Centrale de Lyon, received an award for a project aimed at making mobile telepresence robots available to students unable to attend class due to extenuating circumstances.

At prize-giving ceremony, Jean-Pierre Berthet, Director of Digital Strategy at l’Ecole Centrale, and Dorothée Furnon, present via the BeamPro mobile video conferencing robot  at Lyon’s LearningLab, presented and explained the project to the audience: « This story began with one of our student’s at the  Ecole  Centrale de Lyon, Simon, who was hospitalised following an accident in the mountains. After just a few days, he was able to resume his studies and return to class, attend workshops, move around the school and make the most of breaktimes to chat with his friends”.
