DAISSy Research Group of Hellenic Open University participated in the All Routes Lead to Rome Online Meeting

On 7th May 2020, DAISSy Research Group took part in the second project meeting of the All Routes Lead to Rome project. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting, originally planned in Brussels, has been realised in online mode on the basis of an agenda developed and shared jointly by all partners.

At the meeting, the partners discussed about the project progress and deadlines extensions due to the COVID-19. In particular, they focused on the state of development of the Open Educational Resources platform that is already online at https://romanroutes.eu/index.php. Furthermore, the partners presented the mapping on the entrepreneurial potential of the Roman Routes developed under the Intellectual Output 2.

In the coming months the work will be focused on the development of training contents to be loaded on the platform in order to offer non-formal education courses on entrepreneurship related to tourism issues and the potential of Roman Routes also aimed at disadvantaged people.



DAISSy Research Group contributes in all phases of the project, such as field research and mapping of the Roman routes in Greece, creation of open educational content for the Open Educational Platform, piloting, dissemination and exploitation.

All Routes Lead to Rome is a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission which involves a Consortium of 8 Partners from 5 countries (Belgium, Italy, Greece, North Macedonia and Spain).

The project aims to enable university students to identify and pursue the best strategies to maximize the economic return of the ancient routes network, develop basic and transversal skills such as self-reliance, leadership and ability to work in groups, problem solving, mastering of digital skills and multilingualism.
