Space Spider Web aims to train astronauts while they stay in space to neutralize the effect of their weightlessness on their bodies.

Manifest has always been very supportive in such important efforts that, not only promote Greek talent on the international scene but, above all, give impetus to the future of the country which is our own children. In this context, Manifest contributed to the team’s participation in the World Robotics Championship held in Houston, Texas on April 16-20, 2019.

We are twice as happy because they have not only gained experiences that they will remember all their lives but have returned to Greece with their first World Cup championship!
