ATLANTIS Consulting S.A. participates in CREAMARE project, which is implemented under the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), under the Creativity, Citizens, EU values and Joint operations topic, as a Creative Europe Programme.
The Kick-Off Meeting of CREAMARE project took place in Cosenza, Italy, on 29th of June 2022, at the Executive Center of BCC Mediocrati in Rende. The meeting was hybrid, with members of Atlantis participating both in presence and virtually. Representatives of all partners participated in the meeting, planning the project’s first steps and having a fruitful collaboration.
CREAMARE project aims to create a trans-national and cross-sectorial collaboration framework in which cultural organizations, scientific/research bodies, creative professionals, and technology experts co-produce Cultural and Creative applications and media contents to communicate, disseminate and promote Underwater Cultural Heritage (UCH) and, at the same time, raise the awareness about relevant social problems like pollution and other environmental threats that affect the oceans.
The framework will be tested through the co-production of a Serious Game in which the player will be able to visit highly realistic 3D digital replica of underwater cultural sites. During these virtual dives, the player will solve enigma and challenges thus learning about both the UCH (shipwrecks, finds, submerged cities, ancient trade routes etc.) and the environmental threats (e.g.: oil spills from shipwrecks, ghost nets, illegal fishing, unsustainable boating practices, etc.).
The total project budget amounts to 971.860 EUR and its implementation period is 3 years (end date: 31/05/2025).
The project consortium includes 3D Research s.r.l. (Italy – Coordinator), Atlantis Consulting S.A. (Greece), Novena doo (Croatia), Pragma-iOT (Greece), University of Cádiz (Spain), the National Superintendency for Underwater Cultural Heritage (Italy) and Pro Progressione (Hungary).
