19 JANUARY 2018 / Launch of the Interdisciplinary Research and Innovation Center’s Scholarship Program at the University of Thessaly, with the SNF’s support

On Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018, the University of Thessaly holds an event to mark the launch of the new Scholarship Program of the Interdisciplinary Research and Innovation Center which was established through a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The Program offers twenty post-doctorate scholarships to promising researchers for a three-year period, in eight scientific fields, building upon the research that is already underway at the University.

The Scholarship Program of the University of Thessaly will offer 20 promising students the opportunity to carry out their post-doctoral research, for a period of three years, in eight pre-selected scientific research areas, receiving a full scholarship. The aim of the Program is to reinforce the field of research and promote excellence as well as to support young researchers, thus, contributing to the retention of further brain drain in Greece.
The University of Thessaly, based in Volos, was founded in 1984 and consists of six Schools and a total of 18 departments. The University ranks 7th among 21 Greek Universities in terms of publications.
