On June 26, with the participation of civil society organizations, innovation hubs and academic institutions, a vivid EduTech session took place about the future of education and the impact of technology on it.
The “Startups on Air” event involved innovative ideas and startups, success and failure stories and is powered by #PatrasIQ (Innovation & Technology), the reference and interconnection point of the relevant ecosystem of the city of Patras. “PATRAS IQ” initiative embraces education, innovation, research and entrepreneurship on annual basis and at national level for more than seven years on the row and it has been strongly supported by Hellenic Open University (HOU), one of the CDDC project partners.
Prof. Achilles KAMEAS, Director of DAISSy Research Group of HOU participated in the “Startups on Air” EduTech session where he presented related actions of DAISSy and focused on the CDDC project taking into account its innovative content and its firm interconnection with the impact of technology and digitalization on the educational and cultural heritage world! The online discussion was vivid and raised the interest of the speakers and participants from the sectors of ICT, economy and finance, education and research, innovation and entrepreneurship. It proved to be an excellent platform of matching CDDC with PATRAS IQ and INTERREG providing added value to the establishment of new bonds, the enrichment of stakeholders, the promotion of the project and its current results.
