With a specific methodology created by ITI, social partners ran user experience test on the MVP2 version of the app with community participants and stakeholders. The objective was to gather feedback to improve the app’s features for a better inclusive tool. More than 30 people tested the app in Paris, Lisbon and Barcelona.
Capacity-building event in Paris
In the 3 cities of the MEMEX pilot activities, a capacity-building event has been organized. This event aims at presenting the first results of the project to professionals of the socio-cultural sector and to local policymakers. The two first events took place on December 6th in Lisbon. The Paris event took place on January 24th, 2022.
The Paris team took part in the sustainable development festival of the Rosa Parks neighbourhood called "la fête à DD" on Saturday 25 September. It has been a noteworthy opportunity for the locals to learn more about the MEMEX project but also to sign up for our digital storytelling workshops that will be held in October.
