Celebrating the 10th anniversary of SEERC at Sheffield

10 years of research excellence and challenges

Throughout the year of 2014 our research centre, SEERC, celebrates a decade of continuous presence and research activity in the South East European region. The “SEERC Awareness Week” that took place at the University of Sheffield, UK, 18-21 November 2014, marked the celebrations of SEERC’s 10th anniversary.

Delegates from SEERC and the International Faculty, including Mr. Nikos Zaharis, Director of SEERC and Prof. Panayiotis Ketikidis, Chairman of SEERC Management Committee, attended the SEERC’s week at Sheffield. The eventful week at Sheffield included interesting seminars and workshops while it gave the opportunity to the Sheffield community in the UK to get to know more about SEERC and its achievements.
