Aristotle University Thessaloniki


Why this theme 1 2

Why this theme (1/2)?

  • Climate change is perhaps the research issue with the highest policy relevance and substantial economic implications.

  • Air pollution represents a severe problem especially in larger conurbations all over the world.

  • The linkage between climate change and air pollution is scientifically very challenging.

Why this theme 2 2

Why this theme (2/2)?

  • The International Hellenic University is already offering an MSc in Energy Systems and will soon offer two further Master programs with relevance to this theme:

    • Sustainable Development (with streams on Strategies and Tourism)

    • Environmental Technology (addressing explicitly Air Pollution)

Where do we stand now

Where do we stand now?

  • Some Greek Universities are among the European leaders in the specific field.

  • There are several examples for fruitful collaboration between research groups in Greece and the US.

  • Greek experts are members of networks, to which also US colleagues are contributing.

  • But: Synergy in teaching is rather limited.


Networking

Networking

  • Interdisciplinary networks in individual universities

    Example: The Sustainable Development Network ofthe Aristotle University (linking 9 Schools and Departments) Contact: [email protected]

  • National networks and centers

    Example: The RCE - Central Macedonia

  • International activities

    Example: The ACCENT Network of Excellence


Rce central macedonia

RCE - Central Macedonia
