The ELVITEN project participated in the conference organised by the European People’s Party Group in the Grande Bretagne Hotel in Athens on 7 February 2019. It was an event dedicated to the members of the EPP Group and journalists from various European countries.
ICCS and more specifically the I-SENSE group, presented the vision of the project, the planned activities and also deployed the opportunity to share the ELVITEN idea among European policy makers. Within a short presentation, the I-SENSE members briefly presented how this idea came up and how it was transfigured into a project as well as its social benefits. Attendees had a fruitful discussion about smart cities, future steps and the social circumstances in Europe for young people and other important issues relevant to the current affairs.
In parallel, the ELVITEN project was present with a booth where participants were able to find out further information about the project and its contribution to a better daily life. A light electric vehicle also travelled from Trikala to Athens for the ELVITEN booth, attracting the visitors while the most daring tried it out. The Chairman of the EPP Group, Mr.Manfred Weber, and the President of Nea Dimokratia (Greece), Mr. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, visited the booth and expressed interest to find out more information about the project and finally tested the ELVITEN EL-V.
