University of Thessaly, Greece

The South and East European Development Center (SEED), was established in 1998 as an interdisciplinary research and policy analysis Center at the Department of Planning and Regional Development (DPRD), University of Thessaly, Greece. The Center intends to contribute to the design, analysis and evaluation of development policies applied to the less advanced regions of Europe. SEED is actively seeking to contribute through research and policy analysis to the solution of specific economic, structural and spatial development problems in the European South and East that often escape the attention of scientific and applied research. The Center cooperates with a large number of Academic and Research Institutes in the EU and especially in Southeastern Europe, participating in regional research and policy networks. Cooperation takes the form of workshops, conferences, invited lectures, short staff visits, joint research, joint participation in EU and national programs, student exchange and transfer of know-how.
