Part of AIT’s research activity is performed in the context of projects. Projects are of the following types:

  • Collaborative Research Projects financially supported by European Commission’s Research Funds (HORIZON 2020 Framework Program, FP7: Framework Program 7, LLL: Life Long Learning Program and  CIP: Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program)
  • Collaborative Research Projects financially supported by National Research Funds (General Secretariat for Research and Technology - GSRT)
  • Collaborative Research Projects financially supported by the European Defense Agency (EDA)and by the European Space Agency (ESA))
  • Industrial research projects assigned to AIT by Local and International industries.

Brief overview presentations are provided below for all currently running research projects.

Students' Views

"One of the biggest advantages of AIT is its Career Office. People there try really hard to help all the students by contacting companies and informing us about job opportunities. The Career Days which take place at AIT each year are very well organized and the best Greek and international companies are there, interviewing AIT’s students."

Dimitris Liapis, MSITT 2007 (Greece)
