The proposed research project aims at the systematic documentation and critical analysis of the fifteenth Panhellenic Art Exhibitions, which were organised between 1938 and 1987 and were the most important periodical large-scale art exhibition in 20th century Greece. This study based on extensive research in state and private archives, state and private art collections, as well as in the daily and periodical press, shall provide us with essential information about the artistic production of each era (e.g. the dominant artistic trends), the means of State intervention in the arts and the trends within the art market. Finally, it will look at the art criticisms, which formed the dominant aesthetic canon, by promoting certain artistic criteria and consequently influencing the reception of the artworks by the public and the direction of the artistic production in Greece.
The purpose of this research project is to produce a historical account of the evolution of Greece’s tobacco sector in the period that spans between the end of the Greek Civil War (1949) and the country’s accession into the EEC in 1981.
Τhe Laboratory of Geophysical-Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment participates in the project MAPFARM which is held under the auspices of the Democritus University of Thrace and funded by Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation. The lab has undertaken the task of the large scale geophysical mapping of various neolithic sites in Xanthi and Rodopi.
This project attempts to highlight the developments of the settlement patterns in Eastern Crete from the Classical to the Venetian period. The main goal is to enlighten the transition from the ancient autonomous city-states to the medieval cities and villages. This work aims to a better understanding of the economic, social, political and also environmental issues that influenced that evolution.
Concentrating on the eastern part of Crete, it is the occasion to see how, on a same territory but on a long chronological period, through very different administrative systems, population has organized itself, balancing between a centralized and a disseminated mode of settlement.
Development of an integrated 5 Dimensional space based methodology for Assessing and modeling the Response of Erosion dynamics to land use and climatic changes in Mediterranean watersheds
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.
