In the Department, four research laboratories are operated:
  • Agribusiness Management
  • Agricultural Economy and Agricultural Policy
  • Food Technology
  • Plant Production
and two student laboratories: i) Chemistry and ii) Informatics.

During the five years 2006-2010, the faculty members have published 111 papers in refereed journals, 110 papers in conference proceedings, four books / monographs and 4 chapters in edited volumes. These figures demonstrate the significant research activities carried out at the Department in the last five years and lay the foundation for international recognition.

During the five years 2006-2010 the faculty members had 956 citations in the scientific / research work 21 participations in committees of scientific conferences and two appearances on editorial boards of scientific journals. These numbers reflect the real recognition of the quality of the research conducted in the Department.

The faculty members have developed research partnerships with academic units of the University of Ioannina and other Greek Universities and TEI. In, addition, the department has one interdisciplinary collaboration with foreign institutions. The main aim of the faculty members of the Department in the coming years, is to increase and strengthen their collaborations, especially those with Institutions and foreign institutions.
