Today the project has two robots:
Year: Begining at August 2017
Collaborators: FC Barcelona / Fundació Barça
Since the beginning, the project had the initial collaboration of Fundació FC Barcelona to gave the children the opportunity to visit the Museum of FCB, the facilities of the Camp Nou or to meet the football players of the first team and interact with them.
The robot’s name is an homage to the first child who benefited from the project’s pilot test, Pol, who died some weeks after enjoying this innovative experience that allowed him to make one of his latest dreams come true: to visit Camp Nou and Barça Museum.
In 2019 we have expanded the project and connections have been made daily with different hospitals in and around Barcelona: Hospital Vall Hebrón, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, Hospital de nens, Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol, Hospital Parc Taulí y Hospital Sant Pau. As a novelty this year, the Robot Pol activity has also begun to be carried out from the homes of children with serious illnesses through Fundació Enriqueta Villavecchia.
Year: Start on September 2019
Collaborators: UEFA / UEFA Foundation
For the 2019-2020 season, connections will be expanded in collaboration with the UEFA Foundation to connect during the previous moments to Europa League, Champions League and Eurocopa matches.
