From February 19 to 24, a group of six Greek paleontologists from the Universities of Patras and Athens, led by Prof. George Iliopoulos, will visit our institute and the UNESCO Global Geopark Thuringia Inselsberg-Drei Gleichen.

The cooperation between the three working groups and the Greek UNESCO Global Geopark Chelmos-Vouraikos and its Thuringian counterpart is funded by the DAAD. The content of the project is the investigation of Quaternary cave ostracods in Greece and Germany and the establishment of scientific cooperation between the two geoparks. We are also preparing an ERASMUS agreement between our institute and the Geological Institute in Patras to facilitate further exchange.
