Representatives from the Ephorate of Antiquities of West Attica, the Research Centre Athena, the cultural production and management company MENTOR, and the telecommunications and IT company CITE - implementing bodies of the research project, attended the awarding ceremony of the most important awarding institution for technological innovation in Greece, which was held under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Digital Governance and the Federation of Hellenic ICT Enterprises, on Wednesday, September 20.

This honour recognises the excellent teamwork demonstrated throughout the design and implementation of myEleusis research project, which brought cutting-edge tools like augmented and virtual reality, serious games, digital storytelling, content management and display systems, an interactive digital map, and high-quality digital content to the Archaeological Site of Eleusis.
Dr. Despoina Tsiafaki Director of Research and Head of the Department of Culture and Creative Industries of Institute for Language and Speech Processing (ILSP) at the Athena Research Center accepted the award.

Plan-V won the BRONZE prize in the “Health” category. The project delivered an integrated platform for technology-assisted speech therapy intervention for people with chronic neurogenic speech and language disorders. Plan-V’s virtual speech therapist (Avatar) allows patients to practice at their own time and pace, without the need for requiring the presence of a physical speech therapist. Here’s a short video introduction to the Plan-V platform.
