Hellenic American University/Hellenic American College is pleased to announce that, thanks to the efforts of the four participating twinning institutions, the HOLOTWIN project has been officially approved for funding by Bulgaria’s Ministry of Science and Education. HOLOTWIN is a University twinning action for enhancing capacity and research excellence in holographic telepresence systems as a catalyst of digitalization. The twinning will activate a process of knowledge transfer towards the Technical University of Sofia (Bulgaria), which leverages the academic and research excellence at Aarhus University (Denmark), University of Surrey (UK) and Hellenic American University/Hellenic American College (Greece) in this area of research. The plan of activities includes staff exchanges, brainstorming meetings, research and entrepreneurship workshops, the start of new EU- and nationally funded joint research projects for doctoral students, cross-functional mentoring, training and summer schools.
The kick-off meeting of the HOLOTWIN project has been scheduled for the first week of December 2020. Due to the COVID-19 situation it will be a fully on-line event.
