From 14-15 October 2015 professor Alta van der Merwe and Aurona Gerber presented an overview of the MOSAIC 2B project at the Third International Conference on Enterprise Systems (ES 2015) in Basel, Switzerland.
In the parallel session “Project Presentations” on Wednesday 14 October 2015 the partners from the University of Pretoria (South Africa) presented an overview of the MOSAIC 2B project as well as what has been accomplished in the last 24 months since the start of the project.
The audience enjoyed the presentation and as was mentioned by James Lapalme (Canada) that he applause the MOSAIC 2B consortium for the work that has been done by and believe that “… more Computer Scientists should become involved in projects of this nature where it is not only about technology but the advancement of society.”
The MOSAIC 2B project – funded by the European Union and the Department of Science and Technology South Africa – will end by November 2015. After a field trial of six months with 14 micro-entrepreneurs the consortium is currently investigating the latest results and implications that will be presented at the final dissemination event in November in Pretoria.
