Science

Besides its ad hoc fundings and depending on the needs that emerge in the Greek scientific community, the Foundation designs and develops special financing programs, aiming to the structured contribution to the research and academic life of the country. These programs are addressed to Universities, research centers, and scientific associations and generally to institutions related to research. In this context, the Foundation publishes public targeted calls every year.

CURRENT PROGRAMMES

The Foundation, in addition to its grant-making, designs and implements funding programmes with a focus on particular scientific fields or research institutions. These programmes are created to meet demands from both the needs emerging from grant requests the Foundation receives and from contemporary educational, social and economic developments. For each programme, an open call is released, with the requisite specifications, application and selection procedure guidelines and the result announcement date. In this section you can find information about the active programmes of the Foundation.

Programme Supporting Scientific Societies Programme Supporting Scientific Societies The Scientific societies present rich scientific and educational activity; they implement research programmes and promote the public dialogue and communication between the scientific community and society. Moreover they are constantly linked with universities, as a quite big amount of their members are postgraduate students, researchers and academics offering their services voluntarily. Over that past few years most societies do not have the resources to continue their activity as their funds come from vulnerable sources while, at the same time, they are excluded from State and European Union funding programmes for research as they are not eligible. The John S. Latsis Public Benefit...
