The purpose of the project is to develop integrated methodologies for using space technology to estimate soil erosion rates in Mediterranean basins. 5DARE project will assess the impacts of a changing climate, land use, soil moisture, hydrology and vegetation cover on the quantity of erosion processes in catchments areas in the Mediterranean.
The project will explore Ottoman concepts and beliefs about the supernatural. Its main objectives will be to examine the significance and content of the various perceptions of the "supernatural", to place them within the various Ottoman world images, to analyse the changes that have occurred over time and to relate them to the emergence of different cultural levels and social groups.
The program aims to promote young researchers in cutting-edge technologies to preserve cultural heritage and address societal challenges.
The project aims at the systematic recording and study of the pictorial production (paintings, prints and photographs) which is related to the Greek natural landscape from the 18th to the 20th century.
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).
The program explores the transition from sail to steam navigation and the effects of this technological innovation on seafaring populations in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, between the 1850s and the 1920s, whose lives were drastically changed by the advent of the steam.

MedIns is a comparative spatial history of Ottoman Cyprus and Crete during the early modern period. Based on data from the conquest fiscal survey registers of Cyprus (1572) and Crete (1669-70), the project employs G.I.S. methods and digital cartographic tools to map the patterns of economic production of the two islands.
This Research Project is part of the larger Action KRIPIS-II, and it is based on the use of the recently available Archives of the Ministry of Agriculture (founded 1917). The archives will finally permit a detailed research on the actual implementation of the land reform and its economic, social and political impact both on a national and a local level.
This research programme is a continuation of the programme “Greek artists in the West (15th – 18th century)”. It examines the pursuits of Greek artists who settled in various cities of the Italian peninsula and became engaged in its artistic developments, but did not cut their ties with Greece.
The main objective of this research project is the creation of a national database which will include all available sources for the study and research of the Modern Greek Theater. In the project Sources of History of Modern Greek Theatre a wealth of evidence on the theatrical activity of the travels of Greek acting companies across the wider region of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea has been collected so far. The main focus of the program since its foundation is the introduction of new theatre scientists in the field of research methodology in the history of Modern Greek Theatre and Culture through systematic research training through their continuous processing of archival material and documentation.
The project aims at studying the rural economy of Ottoman Crete combining the use of unpublished Ottoman archival material with applications offered by new technologies, such as the Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
