The Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH, is one of the largest research centers in Greece. It was founded in 2000 and is located in Thessaloniki, Greece. The mission of CERTH is to promote the triplet Research – Development – Innovation by conducting high quality scientific research and developing innovative products and services while building strong partnerships with industry (national and international) and strong collaborations with research center and universities in Greece and abroad.

About Thessaloniki 
With a waterfront location at the Thermaic Gulf of Macedonia region, Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece after Athens. With a millennial history, it is the capital of the region of Greek Macedonia. Located in the north of the country, it stands out for its beautiful monuments, some of which from the Byzantine period. It is also known for its lively nightlife, because it has a very young population. And we cannot fail to highlight the fact that it is the gastronomic capital of Greece.
