Fostering Education and Digitalization in Greece

Access to the Digital World Program
Because "digital skills do not go with age…", COSMOTE has been contributing to the development of technological skills among older people with the "Access to the Digital World" Program. The program has been running since 2012 and aims to promote lifelong learning, improve quality of life, and contribute to the development of technological skills among people with an average age of 64 years. Over the past 5 years, more than 7,000 people have participated in the program. In 2018, a total of five educational centers operated in Athens and Thessaloniki. All the participants learned how to use the tablet, navigate the Internet, enter the "world" of social media, and use applications to make their everyday lives easier (notes, calendar, notifications, webcam, maps, etc.).

COSMOTE Scholarship Program
COSMOTE ran its Scholarship Program for the 17th consecutive year. The program provides 36 scholarships for first-year students facing financial and social difficulties with a total value of € 650,000. Alongside financial support, COSMOTE offered the scholars fixed and mobile products and services free of charge to cover their telecommunication needs for the duration of their studies along with cable TV services. Over a period of 17 years, the program has provided a total of 658 scholarships valued at more than € 5.5 million.
