The Prefecture of Ionian Islands’ Film Office, in collaboration with HAL’s Gamification Hub, has created a virtual extension of the office in the metaverse using the Spatial platform. This initiative aims to promote sustainability, attract filmmakers and tourists, and support the local economy. The virtual Film Office is designed similarly to a physical space and offers private meetings for film and TV industry professionals, information about prospective locations, and details about past productions in the Ionian Islands. In addition, the platform caters to thematic visitors, tourists, and tourism professionals, providing location-based content for trip planning, booking sites, and connecting with local businesses.

He worked within the Computational Fluid Dynamics research team as a research student under the supervision of Professors P. Townsend and M. F. Webster. His research work was largely related with multi-media applications, visualisation and web-based technologies applied to complex scientific fields such as Computational Rheology and the development of Educational Systems for Research and Interactive Learning. This work was truly ground-breaking in the field forming a highly respected thesis on the subject. It led to wide public expose and a deeper understanding of the systems involved. This work is actively utilised and extended under the Institute for Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics and Swansea CFD research group.
Dr Ioannis Deliyannis started working at Ionian University at 2004, at the 17th of June 2010 he was appointed as a Lecturer in the field of “Interactive Multimedia and Digital Technology” at the Department of Audiovisual Arts at Ionian University, Corfu, Greece. On 2016 he was appointed as Assistant Professor with scientific field: “Analog and Digital Technologies of Interactive Multimedia”.
