E-ATP 2023… the conference countdown begins!

E-ATP 2023, Vienna, September 20th- 22nd

The E-ATP 2023 conference takes place in Vienna this year from the 20th to the 22nd of September. This annual event is the largest gathering of assessment professionals in Europe.

If you are part of an organisation that uses or is considering the use of assessments to measure the achievement, competency or performance of your workforce or students then E-ATP 2023 is for you. The assessment industry has expanded hugely in recent years and with AI currently transforming the landscape there is much to discuss.

This year’s programme will consist of informative presentations, engaging interactive sessions and distinguished industry keynote speakers.

Delegates will hear how the community is innovating and developing to push assessment forwards and there will be many opportunities to share best practice with colleagues. There will be numerous networking events over the course of the 2-day conference. Delegates will also be able to test out all the latest assessment tools and technologies at the vendor exhibition.

German Bencci, Founder of CodeYourFuture will deliver this year’s Opening Keynote. CodeYourFuture is a tech community supporting disadvantaged people and refugees looking for careers in the tech industry. German will explain how CodeYourFuture works to liberate learners from ‘collecting endless pieces of paper and instead have them focus on building their own, individual, marketable skills’.

Another conference highlight will be a presentation by Sentira XR‘s CEO Jeremy Carter and Paul Edelblut from Vantage Labs. Their joint session is entitled ‘The Intersection of Authenticity and Innovation: VR and AI in Medical Assessment’. Join them at 2:15 pm on 20th September as they explore using Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence in medical assessment on multiple continents.

Registration for E-ATP 2023 is now open. The delegate fee includes all conference-related sessions and materials as well as lunch and breaks. Don’t miss out!

Sentira wins Innovate UK grant to support VR and AI in medical training

Sentira awarded Innovate UK grant

Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, awards funding to Sentira for a cloud-based VR and AI medical training initiative


Sentira, a pioneer in the field of VR and AI virtual reality medical training has announced that it has been awarded a highly competitive UK-South Korea Collaborative R&D Grant from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency. 

The grant will fund a two-year project in partnership with South Korean technology companies Tetra Signum and Health on Cloud, alongside two UK Universities. The project aims to develop an innovative medical education platform for the delivery of medical pharmacology training. The platform will use a combination of AI-supported immersive VR simulations and advanced voice recognition NLP (Natural Language Processing) techniques to deliver realistic clinical scenarios.

Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, is investing up to £2 million in innovation projects in partnership with the Korea Institute for Advancement of Technology (KIAT). This is to fund collaborative research and development (CR&D) projects focused on industrial research. The funded projects are expected to result in a new product, industrial process or service. They also had to be innovative, involve a technological risk, and have high market potential.

The Sentira submission scored extremely highly and as a result, is one of only a handful of applications to receive funding.
