Development Projects

The participation in research and development projects in Greece and abroad, which are directly related to the production of audiovisual and interactive content in the broader sections of culture, education and entertainment - can serve as a starting point for motivating and funding the lab, especially through strategical collaborations with public and private bodies. Furthermore, the availability of service provisions from the lab to the other bodies can offer a direct connection between the researching process and the production process and provide an opportunity for completing tasks and projects by a qualified and highly skilled staff that combines professional, artistic and researching experience. Due to the reduced state funding to public universities, the participation in national and international research and development projects also gives the opportunity of extra funding - not only to the lab but also to the department of AVarts as a whole. This is is an important factor in the viability and operation of the above institutions, creating as well new job positions to the completion of each project.
