National Center for Social Research

The National Centre for Social Research (EKKE) was established in 1959 under the auspices of UNESCO and is the only public institution in Greece dedicated to the social sciences. ΕΚΚΕ is a public law legal entity supervised by the General Secretariat for Research and Innovation (GSRI) of the Ministry of Development. EKKE’s research strategy focuses on: 1. systematic research, monitoring and recording of social trends and processes, 2. developing infrastructure, theoretical tools, methods and techniques that support policy-making and implementation bodies in their area of responsibility, 3. systematic cooperation with institutions that develop social research (universities, local government, public and private sector, etc.), and 4. in the development of strategic nodes for the coordination of research and its implementation.

National Observatory of Athens

The National Observatory of Athens (EAA) plays an important role in developments and research trends in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space applications, Environment, Energy and Meteorology, Seismology and Geodynamics, at European and international level. It implements major research projects, which are financed by the European Community, the European Space Agency (ESA) and other international organizations, contributing to the promotion of research, scientific development and the attraction and employment of young talented researchers and scientists from Greece and abroad.

University of West Attica

The University of Western Attica (UNIWA) was founded in 2018, with the merger of the Technological Institutes of Athens and Piraeus, thus making it the third largest University in Greece. In the JustReDI research proposal, UNIWA will participate with the Mechanical Engineering Department and the “Mild Forms of Energy and Environmental Protection” and “Production Systems Optimization” Laboratories. The most recent research activities of the Laboratories are focused on: Energy transition planning for island and continental areas Modeling of the Integrated Water-Energy Grid Modeling and development of green e-mobility solutions. Life cycle cost-benefit modeling of integrated energy systems Applications of sustainable mobility, circular economy and environmental management actions in island regions. The impact and results in the local communities in principle and in the wider society is a fundamental priority of the research activities of the UNIWA team, since all relevant projects include studies and analyzes as well as specific innovative actions for a positive response of society to modern energy projects and all energy and digital transition activities.

Hellenic Center for Marine Research

The Hellenic Center for Marine Research (HCMR) aims to carry out scientific and technological research and experimental development, dissemination and application of the results produced, especially in the fields of the study and protection of the hydrosphere, its organisms , its interaction with the atmosphere, the coasts and the bottom of the sea, the physical, chemical, biological and geological conditions that prevail and regulate the aforementioned systems with: the production of products and the provision of services, the support of decision-making regarding the general public, the economy and culture, and the financial exploitation either by HCMR and/or by its employees or by third parties. In order to achieve its goals, HCMR : 1) designs and carries out scientific and technological programs, projects and processes related research studies. 2) promotes the development of relations and collaborations with international organizations, Higher Educational Institutions and relevant national and international Research Institutes as well as legal and natural persons. 3) promotes scientific specialization in the aforementioned. 4) contribute to the education, information and general knowledge of the public. 5) provides scientific and technological information through the appropriate website. 6) provides products and offers services related to his research interests. 7) represents Greece in international organizations with relevant actions.

International Hellenic University

The International University of Greece (IHU) was founded in 2005 (N. 3391/2005) with headquarters in Thessaloniki, as the first public university in which the programs are taught exclusively in the English language, consisting of three Faculties that offered 24 postgraduate study programs. IHU was re-established in 2019 (N. 4610/2019), with headquarters in Thessaloniki, consisting of 9 Schools and 33 Departments located in 7 cities in Northern Greece (Thessaloniki, Kavala, Serres, Drama, Katerini, Kilkis, Didymoteicho). The School of Science and Technology and the School of Humanities, Social and Economic Sciences of the original IHU belong to the University Center for International Studies Programs (PAKEDIPS), offering programs exclusively in the English language. PAKEDIPS, aiming to provide modern educational methods and programs, has its facilities on an area of 16 acres in the outskirts of Thessaloniki. Its modern infrastructures, such as the virtual classrooms, the electronic library, the PC laboratories, the Digital Fabrication and Materials laboratory, the Molecular Ecology and Biology laboratory as well as the collection of the findings of the University’s archaeological excavation in Neo Rysio, create an environment that promotes student learning and research.
