The ARCHERS Conference is being organized during December 6-8, 2021 on the occasion of the successful completion of the Project ARCHERS (“Advancing Young Researchers’ Human Capital in Cutting Edge Technologies in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage and the Tackling of Societal Challenges”), which has been implemented with the exclusive grant of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). This final Conference aims to demonstrate the results achieved through the project and the contribution of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to the Greek Research Community.

The Objective of the project was to support Early Stage Researchers and to educate and train young scientists in the cutting edge technologies, in which the Institutes of FORTH excel both on the national and the international level, thus, contributing towards reversing of brain drain or, even better, at promoting brain circulation. We proposed to accomplish these objectives via the inter-disciplinary research within the high-quality competitive research activities of the Institutes of FORTH. The areas of interest were the preservation of cultural heritage and the tackling of societal challenges, like environment, clean energy and health.

The SNF Funding allowed us to offer post-doctoral Fellowships for a total of 80.19 person-years as well as PhD Fellowships for 68.78 person-years for PhD Candidates following open calls and candidates’ evaluation. Moreover, we organized 50 Seminars within the ARCHERS Seminar Series and 4 Workshops, one for each of the areas of interest.
