Project Information

Project Description

PRISONER was a development project and part of the HORIZON program. The ultimate objective of PRISONER was the development of a training information system in order to make an effective contribution to the professional, economic and social integration of former prisoners. The project was mainly focused on setting up a computer-assisted training center, developing an education methodology compatible with the type of technology used as well as the background and special needs of prisoners and the provision of vocational training in order to equip prisoners with professional skills and qualifications which will increase their competitiveness in the labour market after their release.

PRISONER initiated actions to confront social prejudice and improve the employment prospects of former prisoners by offering specific motives to employers and providing advice and financial assistance to people wishing to become self-employed. In this project MUSIC developed training applications in electronics and TV repair and in English teaching. These are used in Koridalos prisons in Athens.
