National Observatory of Athens


IERSD since its founding has got as a main goal the study of the Environment following an integrated/multidisciplinary approach, performing leading edge research and providing high quality services.

Currently, the Institute's strategy is based upon the following pillars:

  1.     Extension of its nation-wide weather monitoring networks and development of reliable databases.
  2.     Integrated monitoring of environmental pressures, focusing on atmospheric quality, following multidisciplinary approaches and applying synergies between different methodologies and tools.
  3.     Improvement of the understanding, monitoring and forecasting of meteorological parameters and their integration in methodologies tools and services.
  4.     Development of tools and methodologies for the analysis of future climate projections in Europe/the Mediterranean Basin, the estimation of the impacts of climate change and the assessment of adaptation and mitigation strategies.
  5.     Development of methodological tools for the assessment of the building energy performance to reach nearly-zero energy buildings (NZEB).
