Synopsis: The use of steels with higher strengths (400 to 960/1100 MPa) can lead to significantly lighter structures as soon as limitations on stability and deflection can be overcome. Although widely used in automotive and machinery industry, structural applications still remain scarce. Current research activity investigates innovative cross-sections, joints, structural arrangements, and design methods including pre-stressing technologies that enable the assets of high strength steels to be maximised. The work focuses on long-span roof applications, typically used in open stadiums, closed arenas, and exhibition halls as well as tall wind turbine towers.

Project “YouthUs” is an initiative by the Youth Delegates of the COLRA of the Council of Europe, currently run by Youth Delegates of Armenia, Cyprus and Greece in all three countries simultaneously. "Youth Us" is a multi-step process engaging the young people (through schools and universities) of local communities, showing them what the Council of Europe and the Congress are doing, how they can become active citizens on a local and a regional level, and eventually equips them with all the necessary qualifications so that they can apply for being the next Youth Delegates themselves.

The Student Group of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Thessaly will present its new racing car at the port of Volos. Specifically, the event will take place on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 21.00, at the port of Volos (in front of the Papastratos building).

The Centaurus team of the University of Thessaly was founded in October 2009 by 12 undergraduate students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The aim was to design and construct a racing car, aiming to participate in the world's largest contest for student engineers, Formula Student. Apart from the basic knowledge they had acquired from the School, the team started from scratch on this subject.

The scientific team leader is the Assistant Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Mr. Alexis Karmedides.

Its history includes three car models, Chiron, Nessus, the upgraded model of Nessus, Nessus R and Thireus. Some of its important moments are:

  • 1st Classified - Class 3

We are honoured to invite you to join your peers and subject matter experts in EUROMAT2017, that will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, September 17 – 22, 2017.
EUROMAT is the first international congress in the field of materials in Europe. The EUROMAT2017 congress venue will be the “Thessaloniki Concert Hall”, a unique complex of buildings conveniently located at the seafront of the city.
Thessaloniki is a vibrant and modern European city, one of the most important trade and business centres in the Balkans, with great history dating back to around 315 BC. The city is strategically situated in Macedonia, Northern Greece, and is easily accessible from all over the world. Nearby archaeological sites from the time of Alexander the Great and Roman and Byzantine times offer great opportunities for sightseeing, before or after the congress.
Thessaloniki is one of the largest student cities in South-eastern Europe and has the largest student population in Greece. The city has two state universities, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, which was founded in 1926 and is the largest University in Greece, and the University of Macedonia as well as the Technological Education Institute of Thessaloniki. It also hosts a leading Research Center, the Center for Research and Technology-Hellas (CERTH), and many private international institutions, affiliated with and/or accredited by overseas universities.
In 2017 FEMS will be 30 years old. This milestone in the history of FEMS and will be celebrated with special events in the Congress, organised to highlight this special occasion.
We look forward to seeing you in Thessaloniki in EUROMAT 2017.



Volos 23-24/9/2017

Organized by the Greek Oral History Association and the Department of History, Archeology and Social Anthropology, in cooperation with the Regional Direction of Primary and Secondary Education and the City Museum of Volos, the workshop will famliarize the teachers with the production of educational scenarios related to the 1940s war period. Its aim is to create better understanding for a crucial period of Greek history, by focusing both on accurate historical documentation and written or oral personal testimonies. The workshop provides lectures and hands-on training sessions, as well as soundwalks in the city of Volos, where the participants can rediscover their city through oral testimonies about the 1940s.


21st Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2017)

The Greek Computer Society (GCS), the University of Applied Sciences of Thessaly (TEI Thessaly), the Municipality of Larissa and the University of Thessaly, organize the 21st Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2017) in Larissa, Greece, on September 28th–30th, 2017. The Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics is organized annually by the Greek Computer Society. It has been established as one of the most prominent forums for Greek CS scientists to present original and high-quality research on emergent topics of Computer Science.



Response of Offshore Structures subjected to significant wave loading

The efficient and cost-effective design of an offshore structure is in a great extend affected by the accurate prediction of the wave field. The prediction of the wave particle kinematics and the corresponding wave loading remains a complex topic even today. The large size and the complex nature of these structures often lead the designers to simplified solutions.
