On the 7th of July, 600 Getyoo Clickeys were given to all participants to the opening ceremony of the Belgian Presidency of the Competitiveness Council (Research) happening at the Bourse / Beurs in Brussels.
The ceremony was organized by Benoît Cerexhe, the Belgian Minister of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region, responsible for the Economy, Employment, Scientific Research and Foreign Trade, by Sabine Laruelle, Minister for SMEs, the Self-Employed, Agriculture and Scientific Policy and by RIB, Research in Brussels.
The Clickeys had a great success as everyone was wearing one. We constructed a “Getyoo Wall of Fame” for the occasion comprising 24 tags that people could click in order to get links to the main scientific and research organizations in Belgium as well as links to digital arts organizations and pdf’s publications related to science, innovation and research.
There were also digital arts installations showing the latest innovations in the field. Participants had the occasion to click on descriptive sheets placed next to each installation in order to pick up more information about the artist and the installation. The artist themselves could also click the people who were interested into their artwork so they could follow the discussion later and easily find each other’s contact details.
The event was a great success with many many clicks !
