Research labs


Since its foundation the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEI of Crete) is highly research-oriented in every scientific field covered by its departments and its research laboratories; therefore, today it is a major contributor to the production of new knowledge and technological innovations in a wide range of research areas, such as energy in general and renewable energy sources in particular, sustainable development and environment, agronomy and biotechnology, environment, informatics, telecommunications and multimedia, physics, mathematics, nanotechnology, material science, energy, social and economic science.

The TEI of Crete is particularly engaged in conducting basic and applied research. The research policy of the Institute focuses on both basic and technological or applied research that promotes science and development in respect of academic ethics.  In the meantime, it, also, promotes cooperation among national and international educational institutes; as a result a wide network of research collaborations has emerged, which is constantly supported not only through the undertaken Research and Development projects and the collaboration with Research Centres of international fame, but also through the interaction and cooperation with businesses in the private sector, in general.

The TEI of Crete undertakes a significant number of research and development projects under the supervision of the Special Account for Research Grants and the Research Committee. These projects support basic research, its applications and innovative ideas, while they play an important role in diffusing the research results of the TEI of Crete in society and industry. They, also, have a major contribution to connecting research with education, lifelong learning and training.

Details about the research activities of each Department can be found on the website of each Department and on the website of the Special Account for Research Grants
