OXA

Oros Oxa Archaeological Survey

The surface survey at Mount Oxa started in 2017 under the auspices of the Byzantine and post-Byzantine Department of the Ministry of Culture and Sport (protocol number: ΥΠΠΟΑ/ΓΔΑΠΚ/ΔΒΜΑ/ΤΕΕΑΕΙ/ 357358/233390/6024/541). This deliberation granted the permission to the Ephorate of Antiquities of Lassithi to begin a new surface survey on Mount Oxa in collaboration with the Laboratory of Geophysical Satellite Remote Sensing and ArchaeoEnvironment at the Institute for Mediterranean Studies (FORTH), in a program articulated in three years  (2017-2019).

POLItismos-TEchnologIA: New Technologies in the Research, Study, Documentation and Access to the Information for Cultural Heritage Objects and Monuments II

The POLITEIA II (POLItismos-TEchnologIA: New Technologies in the Research, Study, Documentation and Access to the Information for Cultural Heritage Objects and Monuments II) (MIS 5002478) research project, Action KRIPIS, is implemented under the "Action for the Strategic Development on the Research and Technological Sector" of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology, Ministry of Education, Greece and the European Regional Development Fund.

MedSTACH

Eastern Mediterranean Science and Technology Centre for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage - MedSTACH

Project MedSTACH aims to establish Cyprus as an excellence hub in archaeology and cultural heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean region, capitalising on multidisciplinary research and technological innovation. To this end, key Cypriot public academic institutions and national policy makers and stakeholders are teaming up with leading international research and academic institutions to lay the groundwork towards creating the Eastern Mediterranean Science and Technology Centre for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage (acronym MedSTACH).

STORM

Safeguarding Cultural Heritage, Technical and Organisational, Resources Management

STORM plans to introduce an integrated framework and a platform providing tools and services both on macro level to give a global view of the entire value chain and on specific level to promote the improvement of specific processes for protection and danger prevention.

BAKOTA

The Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeology (BAKOTA) project

The Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeology (BAKOTA) project is studying a cemetery population (Békés Jégvermi-kert) in Eastern Hungary during the Bronze Age, and aims to understand how this region differs from neighbouring areas. Our primary area of interest is to understand how travel and participation in trade networks affected sociocultural change and the emergence of social inequality in later European prehistory (2000-1500 BC).
