The project targets the digital upgrade of the primary and secondary educational process in Greece. It is part of a wider strategy of the Greek Government for the “Digital School”, which includes the completion of training courses for teachers on the use and application of ICT and of digital tools, plus a fully operational and accessible e-repository of educational text books.

The project is divided into six sub-projects: the supply and installation of interactive systems, which includes purchasing 36 804 interactive systems, trainings, installation and demonstration services; the supply and installation of mobile computer laboratories, with ten laptops for a primary school and fifteen for a secondary school; a subproject dealing with the overall organisation and management; the promotion and publicity of the project; support services; and the external evaluation of the operation.

A job-creating project with a large scope

Overall, 825 463 pupils, from primary schools to lyceums and institutes, will benefit from the project, representing 8 % of the overall Greek population. Furthermore, 24 jobs are expected to be created during the implementation of the project.
