Spotlight on Sustainability and Technology
The upPE-T VR, developed within the scope of the EU-funded upPE-T project, raises awareness about sustainability & plastic upcycling, its benefits, and different industrial processes through multiple 360-degree, immersive videos. In this app, you will learn about R&D processes undertaken by the upPE-T project partners - Eco Plastics, Enzymicals, CTCR, Moses Productos, CETEC, and CETEC-BIO. This 4-year project has also launched a European Citizens Awareness Platform (ECAP) to increase awareness of products and materials upcycling capacity, bring positive environmental benefits by decreasing 85.6% CO2 compared to conventional plastics production, and contribute to European and international standards and certification schemes.
Digiotouch Academy, on the other hand, is a cloud-based, secure, Generative AI-powered EdTech platform. It has also been developed as a part of the upPE-T project as a MOOC platform and currently hosts a MOOC on different aspects of sustainability. It demonstrates the company’s dedication to digital, on-demand, lifelong learning initiatives and movements toward a greener and better skill for the future.
