The Open University of Cyprus (OUC) has participated in a research project that has highlighted the Byzantine heritage of Cyprus around the world.

“BYZART: Byzantine Art and Archeology on Europeana” was led by deputy professor George Deligiannakis, academic director of the OUC undergraduate programme Studies in Greek Culture.

The project was funded by the European Union’s Connecting Europe programme and is co-sponsored by the University of Bologna (Italy) and the Museo d’arte della citta di Ravenna, Greece, the National Research Foundation, the Ionian University and Italy, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences – Institute of Art Studies.

The general goal of BYZART is to enrich the European Digital Library Europeana with new digital collections and a very significant number – in addition to 100,000 – works of art and documents of the impressive Byzantine cultural heritage, significantly enhancing the use of digital access.
