Kavala Institute of Technology-Dpt of Electrical Engineering

Over the past ten years Kavala Institute of Technology has been actively involved in many trans-national co-operation actions including ERASMUS, COMETT, LINGUA, PETRA, TEMPUS, EUROFORM, TEXT, EURASHE, SOCRATES and bilateral international cooperation programmes (SLOVENIA, GEORGIA etc). It has been also actively involved in international research projects, such as ALPHA, EU DG-Research Vth Framework, (MEDMONT / QLK5-2000-01031), (CONTROCAM /QLK5-2000-01684), INTERREG IIIB CADSES, (GOVERNET/3B084), INTERREG III A PHARE CBC GREECE-BULGARIA (Dra-Smo 2.1-67), INTERREG III B ARCHIMED (Acronym ManagMED A.1 113.31), GREECE-JORDAN HELLENIC AID (YDAS 44.8) and INTERREG IV-C South East as well as to a numerous research projects of various National and European calls, which together with funding from ERDF are over than €30,000,000. The institute has departments involved in research in nanotechnology, microelectronic, material science, fibers and sensors, robotics, communications and natural resources. The institute has a large infrastructure applied to these sciences, including very high-tech instruments for characterizing materials on the nanoscale (see e.g. http://ciss.teikav.edu.gr). The personnel that will be participating are multidisciplined, with knowledge in a wide variety of areas, and with over 100 permanent academic staff, the institute has the capacity to successfully undertake this project and achieve the desired results.

The Department of Electrical Engineering is one of the institute’s original departments. It can be found in the School of Applied Technology and consists of three sectors: Electrotechnics and Electrical Measurement, Electronics & Strong Currents. The department is well equipped and has modern laboratories, which are constantly updated with cutting edge current.
