The University of the Aegean was established in 1984. Its six campuses are organized as a network ofschools and departments located on six Aegean islands: Lesvos, Chios, Samos, Rhodes, Syros, andLemnos. The resulting challenge of distributing and coordinating academic and administrative activitieshas driven the adoption of ICT in all academic practices and has enhanced the sense of unity across theUniversity’s academic community. In terms of its educational strategy, the UAegean invests inmultidisciplinary scientific fields that aim at addressing the needs of the modern world. It has led the wayin the introduction of new undergraduate and postgraduate disciplines (such as environmental studies,multimedia and design, humanities, Mediterranean studies, innovation management), making theUAegean a pioneering and competitive institution by Greek and European standards.
