Our annual award ceremony will take place on EUNIS island this year.
Please join us for a very brief presentation of certificates to our 2021 award winners and bring along a glass of whatever you please to raise a toast to them.
Afterwards relax and chat to friends old and new and we will have some surprise visitors dropping in to say hello.
You will have the opportunity to take a 10 minute tour of the Museum of Geology and Paleontology of the University of Athens to see some of the weird and wonderful creatures that have lived on the Greek islands.
You are welcome to share the island link with family and friends so they can join you on the tour.
The Museum of Geology and Paleontology of the University of Athens is the largest national paleontological museum in Greece. Its collections include fossils of animals and plants from Greece and abroad and cover a span of more than 600 million years of the Earth’s natural history. As modern technologies give new opportunities for learning and entertainment, the museum, using digital tools is taking steps towards enhancing the accessibility of its exhibits.
Museotek, which is used by the Museum of Geology and Paleontology, is a digital platform that aims at bringing museums, and cultural educational programs in general, closer to remote audiences. The key value of Museotek is that it eliminates most frequent barriers (i.e., distance, budget issues, accessibility factors) that can prevent students from attending educational programs of interest. Through the Museotek portal (https://museotek.net), school classes, university classes, researchers or families can find and book educational programs provided by participating cultural organizations and experts all over the world. The Museotek platform and tools assist museum staff during program execution so that they can offer a high quality live experience to remote groups of attendees.
