The educational programme was specially designed by the students of the University of Peloponnese, under the supervision of Dr. Maria Kouri. The all project was carried out as a part of their lesson “Development of new Products & Services” which was funded by the Operational Program 2007-2013 “Education and Training – lifelong learning programme”.
