“France, campus of the world˝ is the theme of the European Higher Education and Research Fair RUE 2017 event and seems just right for illustrating the use of BEAM mobile telepresence robots in education.

Awabot will be present within the CréaLab set up by the RUE on 16th and 17th March at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. Let the BEAM mobile telepresence robots teleport you to higher education establishments in France and around the world so that you can visit the places where innovations are created and discuss educational practices and technologies. Among them are Michigan State University, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, l’Université Laval in Québec, the Universities of Dijon, Lyon 1 and Saint-Etienne, and the Centrale Lyon and EMLyon Learning Lab.

BeamPro robots will also be on-site and available to participants and remote visitors. The brand new, ultra compact Beam+Max, particularly suited to the problems posed by teaching practices with its eight-hour battery life, will be introduced to the public during the ˝Digital revolution :tools for freeing yourself from the present˝ activity.  Details can be found on the  RUE 2017 schedule and on the Awabot stand throughout the event.
