On Friday 30th September 2016, Evangelia and Giovanni had the unique opportunity to engage with the public and disseminate the beneficial outcomes of their research at the EU Research Night Lights Festival 2016, organized by the University of Lincoln. The event, sponsored by the EU, had a great success and the people who approached the REVAMMAD display stand were informed about the recent advances in detection and prognosis of diabetic retinopathy with the use of mathematical and computerized models. The activity was also interactive as the people were given retinal images of various forms and color markers trying to identify lesions as well as vein and arterial vessel trees, aiming to demonstrate the positive impact that automated techniques could have on undertaking time-consuming and labor-intensive tasks.
