About the project

“Aristotelistes” project aims to create an innovative platform of worldwide impact, concerning ancient Greek literature. The project fully adopts and builds on the open innovation paradigm with considerable added value contributed by Greek academia and research institutes.

Its main objective is the development, demonstration, assessment and utilization of an integrated and inclusive open platform containing the complete corpus of Aristotelian works. This platform will operate as a social cooperative network, in which diverse types of users (academics, scholars, general public, students, and educational staff) will be able not only to navigate through its content, but also to contribute creatively towards its enhancement.

The value of the project lies on its novel approach to the study of a classical corpus. The project will crucially contribute to the development of a sustainable open innovation environment in the field of culture, which meaningfully incorporates collective intelligence.
