History Soon after the end of the German occupation of Greece, the issue of establishing a University on Crete was brought up and reached its peak during the 1960’s. However, although public demand for the establishment of a university on Crete was unanimous, there was also an intense rivalry between the two major cities on the island on which one would become the seat of that university. Finally, the solution to the problem was given in 1977 by the then Prime Minister K… [+] onstantinos Karamanlis, who made a balanced decision approving both the establishment of a University with faculties in Heraklion and Rethymnon and the establishment of a Technical University in Chania. The Technical University of Crete was established by the Law 545/77 on the “Establishment of a Technological Institution under the title Technical University of Crete and other provisions”. On July 17th 1977, the first Executive Committee of the Institution convened under the presidency of Professor Perikles Theoharis and in the presence of the then Minister of National Education G. Rallis, consisting of the Mayor of the City of Chania and the President of the Western Crete Section of the Technical Chamber of Greece, representing the local element which had shown great interest in the establishment of the University. The main task of this first Executive Committee in 1977 was to find land for the erection of permanent university facilities by commencing the expropriation procedure of 350 hectares of land. It is worth mentioning, at this point, the immense support of the local community on this matter. At the same time, the Executive Committee also dealt with the organization and recruitment of the university services but mostly with the legal framework for its operation. As a result of the Executive Committee’s dedicated work, a great number of decrees were issued, the most important of which is the Presidential Decree 1140/80 on the “Establishment of Higher Education Schools, Departments and Research Institutes as well as posts of Professors at the Technical University of Crete”, which provided for the establishment of three Schools: a) Technical Sciences, b) Applied Sciences and c) Architecture and Spatial Planning. Each School would comprise four Departments. Apart from its work on the legal framework of the Institution, the first Executive Committee was responsible for the acquisition of three historic buildings (Old Prisons, Old City Hall, or Arsenal and the Venetian Loggia), the drawing up of studies for their restoration as well as the drawing up of studies for the Initial University Facilities. The Committee proceeded in purchasing computers, books and 479 magazine titles for the Central University Library as well as in setting up electoral bodies for judging the candidatures for the calls for tender regarding Educational & Research Personnel positions. After 1981, a new Executive Committee was set up under the presidency of Professor Thales Argyropoulos (1982-1988) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and later, under the presidency of Professor Theodore Lianos (1988-1989) who was a faculty member of the Higher School of Economic and Commercial Studies (ASOEE). The new Executive Committee completed or revised decisions of the former administration with reference to basic issues such as the housing problem and the educational programming. As far as the housing problem was concerned, it gave priority to the development of the University inside the city by renovating the Old Venetian Prisons and Barracks, acquiring and renovating the former French School, acquiring the Military Division complex of buildings by the Ministry of National Defence, securing the use of the Hatzidakis camp in Halepa and putting forward studies for the erection of buildings on it. At the same time, the project of the erection of university facilities in Akrotiri was put forward while the expropriated land for this purpose had been cut down by 60 hectares compared to the initial surface. The foundation ceremony of the university facilities in Akrotiri took place in December 1988. As far as the educational programming was concerned, significant changes took place, based, of course, on the new legal framework that had started to form in the meanwhile but had definitely reversed the programming of the Executive Committee of 1977. The capstone of the philosophy of the Executive Committee of 1981, with reference to the educational programming, was the issuing of the Presidential Decree52/83 on “the structure of the Technical University of Crete into Departments and Sectors, the procedure of electing permanent faculty members and prerequisites on the independent function of the Technical University of Crete with elected governing bodies”. Instead of three Schools and 12 Departments that were provided for in the P.D. 1140/80, the new P.D. 52/83 provided for the establishment of 6 Academic Departments: Production Engineering and Management, Mineral Resources Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Sciences Department. In 1984, the first faculty members were appointed. During the academic year 1984-85, the Production Engineering and Management Department started running its educational programme and admitted its first 120 students together with the Sciences Department. The Mineral Resources Engineering Department followed in 1987-88 and the Electronics and Computer Engineering Department in 1990-91. Later on, and after the University had become independent, the Chemical Engineering Department became an Environmental Engineering Department and admitted its first students in 1997. Finally, in 2004 the Architectural Engineering Department was established and welcomed its first students. In September 1989, the new Executive Committee, presided by the Professor of the National Technical University of Athens Mr. Ioannis Tegopoulos together with the Professors of the Technical University of Crete Mr. Antonis Foskolos and Mr. Joachim Gryspolakis as vice-presidents, decided to change the spatial planning orientation of the expansion of the university. They abandoned the idea of further expanding the university within the city of Chania and rapidly promoted the development of the facilities of the university in Akrotiri. The University assigned facilities such as the Hatzidakis camp and the Venetian Loggia to the Municipality of Chania for other uses. The buildings that were kept in order to be used by the university itself include the Venetian Complex of the Old Prisons and Barracks, which now house the Rectorate offices as well as the offices of administrative and financial services, whereas the facilities of the former French School in Halepa now accommodate the Department of Architectural Engineering. In this way, the University maintains its necessary cohesion with the city of Chania and its social fabric. But, most important of all, this policy enabled the housing of the rest of the academic departments of the university within campus in Akrotiri, which offered the possibility for the erection of suitable lecture halls, laboratories and infrastructure that modern requirements dictate for a Technical University. In 1993, all the necessary legal requirements were met and thus, all the Departments of the University became independent and have been operating since then with elected governing bodies. As soon as these requirements were met, the procedure for the election of a Rectorate was initiated, thus establishing the independent operation of the Technical University of Crete. Professor Yannis Phillis became the first Rector of the Technical University of Crete assisted in his functions by the Vice-Rectors Professors Ioannis Siskos and Theodore Markopoulos, who took on their office on 8.12.1993. Since then, the Technical University of Crete has been making continuous and significant progress. The high quality of the faculty staff, the scientific partners and the administrative and technical personnel guarantee the University’s future growth. The campus is certainly one of the best in Greece, with modern lecture halls and research facilities, library, student hall of residences, restaurant and recreational areas. New Departments are scheduled for the future and at the same time, the contribution of the Technical University of Crete in research is broadly appreciated, as the Institution is now recognized as one of the most prestigious research institutions in Greece with hundreds of research programmes in progress. The Technical University of Crete is now recognized both as an educational and research institution in Greece and internationally and can therefore envision with great optimism its future. Future Goals Emphasis on providing top quality education (TUC graduate unemployment rates between 3 & 4%, first-time employment 1 to 6 months after graduation) Conducting innovative research (the Technical University of Crete is one of the two most active universities in the country with the highest number of research results) Creation of a Regional Innovation Pole and Technological Park Effort in supporting innovation (through incubators) Organization of seminars for the proliferation of technology and innovation Cooperation with local authorities in solving environmental & organizational problems etc. Campus The campus is undoubtedly the heart of TUC: students, professors, lab technicians, administrative employees, all meet on campus on a daily basis. Common reference points of all students are the Library, the IT & Communications Centre, the Hall of Residences, the University Restaurant and Cafeterias as well as the Sports Facilities. And because your time as a student should not be spent only on books and studying, make sure you discover a life outside classrooms and lecture halls, even more interesting and exciting, by participating in one of the student groups and associations (cultural and political), which set the tone on campus!
HISTORY OF THE IOA In 1927, Pierre de Coubertin was invited by the Greek government to Olympia, to attend the unveiling of a commemorative stele created in order to honour his actions to revive the Olympic Games. During his stay in Greece, he discussed the need for an academic centre for the study of the Olympic Movement and its trends with his friend Ioannis Chrysafis, who headed the Department of Physical Education at the University of Athens. Coubertin believed that… [+] the Olympic Movement should not deviate from its educational objectives and had written: "I have not been able to carry out to the end what I wanted to perfect. I believe that a centre of Olympic studies would aid the preservation and progress of my work more than anything else, and would keep it from the false paths which I fear". Coubertin's ideas were in accord with the aims of the Hellenic Olympic Committee, which wanted to set up an academic centre modeled after the ancient Gymnasium, to lay down the foundations for the educational value of sport by carrying out studies and organizing classical games. The sudden deaths of Chrysafis (1930) and Coubertin (1937) prevented them from implementing their ideas.One year after Coubertin's death and following his own wish, his heart was placed inside the commemorative stele in Ancient Olympia. This rekindled the idea for the establishment of a centre for the Olympic Games in Ancient Olympia. The project was taken up by Ioannis Ketseas, a student of Chrysafis at the National Gymnastics Club and Secretary of the Hellenic Olympic Committee and the German Carl Diem, a close associate of Coubertin devoted to the Olympic Movement and education. Diem and Ketseas, who had worked together for the first Torch Relay from Olympia to Berlin in 1936, decided to work toward the realization of a Centre of Olympic Studies. By 1938 they had prepared a plan for an institution named International Olympic Academy and had submitted it to the Hellenic Olympic Committee. The HOC adopted the plan, and that same year, incorporated in its Charter the establishment and operation of the IOA, as one of the Committee's aims. At the 38th IOC Session in Cairo, the members of the IOC were informed by the HOC about the law recently adopted for the establishment of an Olympic Academy in Greece. One year later, in the 39th IOC Session in London, the IOC decided to place this foundation which would promote the Olympic ideals through education under its auspices. Following the end of World War II, a detailed memorandum about the operation of the Academy, drafted by Ketseas and Diem, was submitted to the 41st IOC Session in Stockholm in June 1947. On the 28th of April 1949, the 44th IOC Session in Rome unanimously approved the establishment of the IOA, and assigned its implementation and operation to the Hellenic Olympic Committee, under the auspices of the IOC. Several years later and after a long struggle, the first IOA Session was scheduled for the summer of 1961 to coincide with the opening ceremony of the ancient stadium of Olympia, which had been excavated thanks to the initiative of Carl Diem, who ensured the expenses for the project. The International Olympic Academy was officially inaugurated on the 14th of June 1961, and the proceedings of the first Session were headed by Cleanthis Palaeologos, Director of the Physical Education Department of the University of Athens, and the German Professor Lotz. From 1962 to 1990 the academic pursuits of the Academy were coordinated by its late Dean, Otto Szymiczek, whose contribution to the development of the Academy was invaluable; along with Professor Palaeologos, who had been made Honorary Vice-President of the Academy, they charted the course for three decades, and were both awarded the Gold Medal of the Academy.The contribution of N. Nissiotis, Professor of the philosophy of religion, was also instrumental in the scientific development of the IOA. He presided over the Academy from 1977 to his death in 1986. During its first decade of operation, the activities of the IOA were limited to the International Session for Young Participants. From 1970, the IOA progressively implemented additional educational programmes devoted to the issues of the Olympic Movement. Today, many different events take place every year on the premises in Ancient Olympia. Until 1966, participants lived in tents, and the Sessions were held under the pine trees. The first buildings were completed in 1967, and they have gradually been added to with sports facilities and new buildings. The new conference centre was completed in 1994, bringing state of the art facilities to the service of the participants. In recognition of its contribution to the humanistic aim it serves and to the development of the Olympic Movement, the IOA was awarded the Bonacosa Award in 1961 and 1970, and the Olympic Cup in 1981. THE VISION TO EXPLORE AND ENHANCE THE CONTRIBUTION OF OLYMPISM TO HUMANITY IN THE 21st CENTURY The International Olympic Academy functions as a multicultural interdisciplinary centre that aims at studying, enriching and promoting Olympism. The foundation of such an institution was inspired by the ancient Gymnasium, which shaped the Olympic Ideal by harmoniously cultivating body, will and mind. The organization of the first Olympic Games of the 21st century in Athens took place in a context of changes at an international level which affect every aspect of human thinking and activity.We, our cultures and our civilizations have already entered a greater transitional period in which the images of the world that we were used to taking for granted are being altered. The interrelated scientific, technological, economic, political and social developments that characterize the course of humanity towards the third millennium are influencing each and every idea, norm and institution of our international community.This dynamic wave is also opening up new forms of dialogue for the future of Olympism. Moreover, as can be seen through the study of its age-long history, the Olympic Ideal has always been conceived and formed according to the wider conditions prevailing during different periods in time. The birth, the prosperity, the decline and the revival of the Olympic Games have all been the reflection of the wider cultural conditions that shaped each era. The speculations and potentials still evolving out of the Olympic Movement are naturally arising in the realization process of such an Ideal. "Olympism", after all, in the words of Pierre de Coubertin, "is not a system, it is a state of mind. It can permeate a wide variety of modes of expression and no single race or era can claim to have the monopoly of it". The International Olympic Academy provides a unique opportunity for students, academics, athletes, artists and officials from all over the world to exchange ideas and share this "state of mind" in Ancient Olympia. The wide variety of educational sessions, academic programmes and in depth research studies that are offered, all aim towards serving the vision of the International Olympic Academy for the new century: to explore and enhance the contribution of Olympism to humanity. MISSION THE MISSION OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC ACADEMY The aim of the International Olympic Academy is to create an international cultural centre in Olympia, to preserve and spread the Olympic Spirit, study and implement the educational and social principles of Olympism and consolidate the scientific basis of the Olympic Ideal, in conformity with the principles laid down by the ancient Greeks and the revivers of the contemporary Olympic Movement, through Baron de Coubertin's initiative. The mission of the IOA is: 1. To function as an International Academic Centre for Olympic Studies, Education and Research. 2. To act as an International Forum for free expression and exchange of ideas among the Olympic Family, intellectuals, scientists, athletes, sport administrators, educators, artists and the youth of the world. 3. To bring together people from all over the world, in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. 4. To motivate people to use the experiences and knowledge gained in the IOA productively, in promoting the Olympic Ideals in their respective countries. 5. To serve and promote the Ideals and principles of the Olympic Movement. 6. To cooperate with and assist the National Olympic Academies and any other institutions devoted to Olympic Education. 7. To further explore and enhance the contribution of Olympism to humanity.

MAICh is the 4th constituent institute of CIHEAM, the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies, an Intergovernmental Organisation which was founded at the joint initiative of the OECD and the Council of Europe on 21 May 1962 under an agreement signed by the governments of seven southern European countries: France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and Yugoslavia. The 1962 agreement establishing the Centre stipulates that CIHEAM's mission… [+] consists in "providing supplementary education (economic as well as technical) and developing a spirit of international cooperation among agricultural personnel in Mediterranean countries". According to article 15 of this agreement, every country on the Mediterranean rim is potentially eligible for membership of CIHEAM.

This initiative resulted in the accession of several new Member States: Tunisia (1985), Egypt and Algeria (1986), Malta (1989), Morocco (1991), Albania (1992) and Lebanon (1994). CIHEAM is made up of four Mediterranean Agronomic Institutes (MAIs), located in Bari (Italy), Chania (Greece), Montpellier (France) and Zaragoza (Spain), and a General Secretariat based in Paris. Since 1986, and as the 4th constituent institute of CIHEAM , MAICh pursues its three main complementary missions through - post-graduate specialised education - networked research - facilitation of regional debate - with focus in the fields of Business Economics and Management, Geoinformation in Environmental Management, Horticultural Genetics and Biotechnology, Food Quality and Chemistry of Natural Products, Sustainable Agriculture, and has established itself as an authority in Mediterranean agriculture, Food and Rural Development.
