The collaboration with Ionian University started on 2004 with the former TEI of the Ionian Islands, when Dr. Nikolopoulos and Dr. Zisos from former Piraeus University of Applied Sciences, Dr.Vogiannis and Assis.Prof Dr. Matsoukas from the University of the Aegean collaborated with Prof. Dr. Koulougliotis and Assis.Prof. Dr Kalimeris from the former TEI of the Ionian Islands for the submission of two proposals in the NSRF Archimedes III. All members have collaborated then in a joint proposal submission for INTERREG-IVC funding. They collaborated also in the framework of the Thales IndrAQ NSRF project of Piraeus University of Applied Sciences (2012-2016).

Today (2020) the reaserch activities continue between the new Universities; University of West Attica, Depertment of Industrial and Production Engineering and Ionian University, Depertment of Environment in the fields of Electromagnetic Radiation from Digital Communications and Targeted Environmental Applications.



Since 1992 Assis. Prof. Dr.Louizi and Dr.Nikolopoulos have initiated a research collaboration on studies of the concentrations of radon with passive techniques in various indoor places in Greece. This period was combined with calibration experiments and the contribution in the design of a radon calibration chamber (Mini Radon House) which was installed in the National Technological University of Athens (responsible, NTUA Prof.Dr.Simopoulos Simos).


In short, the research extended to the measurement of radon progeny in indoor places with active techniques. Product of this research was the collection of large sample of active and passive measurements in Greece. The active measurements included, later, measurements of radon in water and radon in soil, introducing techniques for the discrimination of radon and thoron. During the last ten years, the radon research focused on thermal spas. After investigating the radon burden of various Greek Spas, the research extended to the dynamical semi-empirical modelling of the Loutraki spas. Today (2014) new methods are approached for the simulation of the concentrations of radon and progeny of the Ikaria Spas. During the last five years, the research has targeted to human radiation environment, air-quality, and radon precursors detected prior to earthquakes.


Since 2004, the collaboration included the Monte-Carlo modelling of medical imaging detectors. Modelling has been implemented with self-designed codes, and GATE GEANT4.


The team includes now Assoc.Prof.Dr. Kottou Sofia as basic partner


The relevant scientific work of the collaboration with MPL-UoA rendered the publication of more than 20 papers in international peer-refereed journals and numerous research projects and collaborations.
