The ReThiCare project KickOff took place on 11 and 12 April in the IKKM Lounge in the University Library in Weimar. We were especially pleased to welcome all project partners from Denmark (Odense) and Chemnitz. The multidiscpiplinary group discussed differences, similarities and challenges for interventions and technical support systems and exchanged best practices between Denmark and Germany. The meeting also provided an opportunity to discuss and coordinate research strategies and goals between the project partners and the extended team of associated researchers.
Further discussions focused on fundamental ethical issues of technology in a care context and helped to achieve a mutual understanding of ethical challenges and fundamental guidelines in all phases of the project. The meeting provided a productive starting point for the project and we are looking forward to work with the institutional partners for the upcoming years
