Education and Outreach



In RCAAM, during 2010 there are 10 postgraduate students, who are carrying out research in the frame of their PhD and Masters Theses under the supervision of members of our institute.

A course on "Nonlinear Dynamics" for Masters' students at the section of Astrophysics, Astronomy and Mechanics, of the Physics Dept. of the University of Athens is offered by Dr. P. A. Patsis.


A series of presentations under the title "Modern Physics Matters: From the Macrocosm to Microcosm" took place at the Secondary School of Melissia as follows:

P.A. Patsis presented "The Universe of Galaxies" to the School of Second Chance of Kalithea, on Feb 24, 2011.

I. Contopoulos gave the public talk "The Small Scale and the Large Scale", (29 Jan 2011) at the Theotokos Church School of Alimos, to students of primary and secondary education.

The Research Center for Astronomy of the Academy of Athens, co-organized with the French Institute of Athens and SPOT Infoterra a full-day during the World Space Week 2010 (4-10 October). The audience comprised of more than 400 students from schools of Athens.

Dr. Manolis Georgoulis gave a presentation about Space Weather.

The International Year of Astronomy 2009 was a global effort initiated by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and UNESCO to help the citizens of the world to rediscover their place in the Universe, and thereby engage a personal sense of wonder and discovery.

The Research Center for Astronomy and Applied Mathematics of the Academy of Athens participated in this effort by organizing a series of public lectures:
