   Located in campuses in Heraklion and Rethymnon on the island of Crete, a site rich in ancient and modern Mediterranean cultures, the University is well placed to offer a vibrant social and intellectual life. Research and research training at all levels benefits from the close collaboration between many of the University's research groups with the Institutes of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) and the Institute of Marine Biology and Genetics (IMBG), as well as through the multiple networks of national and international educational and research collaborations.

   Many dimensions of University life continue to be impacted by austerity policies associated socio-economic crises in Greece.  In this changing and challenging context, wherein the resiliance and resourcefulness of the academic community becomes paramount, the University remains committed to its mission of providing a stimulating environment that promotes education by teaching and research.  We strive for excellence in teaching, research, and community partnerships, and aim to

- provide a secure and open teaching and learning environment for our students;

- take a leading role in research and the resulting innovations;

- promote the cultural, social and economic development of the region; and

- develop and strengthen collaborations with other academic institutions within Greece, Europe and worldwide.
