ARCHIMEDES – Research on artificial intelligence, data science and algorithms


The “Archimedes” Center for Research in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Algorithms was founded in January 2022 with the support of the Committee Greece 2021, is funded for its first four years by the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) and operates as a Research Unit of the Athena Research Center. Through “Archimedes” Greece is expected to be at the forefront of science, in a field of knowledge whose importance is constantly increasing and now has multifaceted applications across the spectrum of economy, society, industry, etc.

“Archimedes” will serve both basic and applied research and will be connected with Greek, but also foreign University institutes and research centers. Its main mission will be the funding of visiting researchers (faculty members and researchers in Greece and abroad) as well as PhD candidates in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Algorithms.

“Archimedes” will train a new generation of Greek scientists. It will organize systematic training and educational programs, will build bridges of systematic communication with important institutions abroad and will offer an opportunity to participate in high quality research to talented young scientists, thus dramatically accelerating their scientific development and offering them a promising career path.
