The ancient Athenian site just got an important contemporary update to its environment.
Professors, researchers and students of educational institutions around the world will now have access to the internet upon their visits to the Acropolis. The new option is available thanks to a global roaming access service for members of educational institutions called Eduroam.
The Greek Research and Technology Network, which belongs to the Greek Ministry of Education, and the Acropolis Restoration Service of the Greek Ministry of Culture, helped launch the project.
The Athens-Macedonian News Agency reports that the Greek Research and Technology Network believes that with this new access the foundations for the development of online applications related to the Acropolis are being laid.
