Daphne’s Diary is a concept design and prototype for historical interactive location-based audio narrative Geocaching tours, developed during the COST Cyberparks Training School titled “Virtual Flâneur of Mediterranean Cities” that took place at the Cyprus Institute, Nicosia, during the week of 30.10-3.11.2017.

On February 2018, the Cyberparks COST Action has awarded the project a short-term scientific mission (STSM) grant, for further development and implementation of the project with bi-communal cultural institutions in Nicosia, in collaboration with the Cyprus Institute. The STSM was conducted between March 22 and April 4 2018 [x]
