Programme Outline and Goals

Progress and innovation in technology were of exceptional importance for the development of ancient societies. Ancient technologies and crafts are of interest to archaeologists and historians but also many other scientists. The International Hellenic University Summer School in Ancient Technologies and Crafts offers the opportunity to study different aspects of the technological advances of ancient cultures, with a principal focus on ancient Greece, revealing the outstanding technological level that in fact the ancient civilizations had reached.

In the course of the programme, the latest historical research along with state-of-the-art scientific techniques applied to the analysis of archaeological findings will be presented by senior academics and field archaeologists who are experts in various research areas, such as the exploitation of natural resources, the crafts exercised in everyday life or recorded by state bureaucracy, building technology, the outcomes of the interconnection between technology and science or technology and ideology, etc.

The Summer School on Ancient Technology is planned to be held annually with the aim of a) providing an international forum on technological achievements of the ancient Greek world and b) making greater use of the rich resources of Greece in terms of specialists in ancient technology research.

The aim of this 2-week intensive school is to make the participants more acquainted with aspects of ancient technologies by providing up-to-date knowledge presented and discussed by the experts of the relevant fields. It is of great benefit for the students to study ancient technologies and crafts in a location such as Northern Greece where in recent years major works in preservation have been accomplished by applying modern techniques and ideas and the museum exhibitions display impressive results of ancient technologies.

The Aristotle University excavations at the site are carried under the directorship of Prof. M. Tiverios and his associates the Assistant Prof. E. Manakidou and the senior researcher Dr. D. Tsiafakis.

 

  1. The excavation site of the Ancient Agora of Pella, the capital of the ancient kingdom of Macedonia by the end of the 5th century B.C., birthplace and seat of the king Philip II and of his son, Alexander the Great! The ancient agora covers 70000 square meters and contained multiple buildings and workshops attesting to the city’s economic strength – from ceramic and sculpture studios, to metal processing, food and perfume manufacturing, administrative offices and the city’s archive, containing the clay stamps of papyrus records.

Βιώσιμες Στρατηγικές στις Τουριστικές Επιχειρήσεις

 

ΣΚΟΠΟΣ ΠΡΟΓΡΑΜΜΑΤΟΣ

Αναντίρρητα, στην παρούσα κατάσταση στην οποία έχει περιέλθει η ελληνική οικονομία ο τουρισμός είναι δυνατόν να αποτελέσει έναν από τους σημαντικότερους πυλώνες ανάπτυξης και εισροής εσόδων. Για να καταστεί κάτι τέτοιο δυνατό απαιτείται η αναθεώρηση του εγχώριου τουριστικού «προϊόντος» και η στροφή προς την κατεύθυνση εναλλακτικών αειφόρων επιχειρηματικών πλάνων στις τουριστικές επιχειρήσεις. Αξίζει να σημειωθεί, ότι η Τουριστική βιομηχανία είναι άρρηκτα συνδεδεμένη με το φυσικό και το πολιτιστικό περιβάλλον. Ως εκ τούτου υπεισέρχονται κριτήρια ποιότητας και αειφορικής διαχείρισης των περιβαλλοντικών προβλημάτων της τουριστικής οικονομίας. Ο αειφορικός τουρισμός, ο εναλλακτικός τουρισμός και ο οικοτουρισμός αποτελούν μορφές και κατηγορίες τουρισμού που εισφέρουν στο εισόδημα των προστατευόμενων περιοχών και ταυτόχρονα συνδέονται με την προστασία του περιβάλλοντος.

Στην ως άνω βάση το προτεινόμενο πρόγραμμα αποσκοπεί στην απόκτηση εισαγωγικών γνώσεων και βασικών αρχών που σχετίζονται με:

  • (α) τις αρχές των περιβαλλοντικών Επιστημών και της Βιώσιμης Ανάπτυξης,
  • (β) τα συστήματα Περιβαλλοντικής Διαχείρισης στις τουριστικές επιχειρήσεις,
  • (γ) τα οικονομικά του περιβάλλοντος και τη περιβαλλοντική διαχείριση,
  • (δ) τον εναλλακτικό τουρισμό.

Επιχειρηματικότητα & Καινοτομία

 

ΣΚΟΠΟΣ ΠΡΟΓΡΑΜΜΑΤΟΣ

Οι έντονα ανταγωνιστικές τάσεις που επικρατούν πλέον τόσο στην εγχώρια όσο και στην παγκόσμια αγορά, σε συνδυασμό με το δυσχερές οικονομικό περιβάλλον και την παρούσα οικονομική κρίση που βιώνουμε σε παγκόσμιο σχεδόν επίπεδο, καθιστούν - ίσως περισσότερο από ποτέ - επιτακτική τη "στροφή" προς την ανάληψη επιχειρηματικών δράσεων, μέσω των οποίων το ανθρώπινο δυναμικό θα έχει τη δυνατότητα να εκμεταλλευτεί επιχειρηματικές ευκαιρίες και να στραφεί σε πολύτιμες επαγγελματικές διεξόδους. Διαπιστώνοντας την τάση αυτή, το Διεθνές Πανεπιστήμιο της Ελλάδας προσφέρει ένα πρωτοποριακό πρόγραμμα κατάρτισης, που αποσκοπεί στην ανάπτυξη και καλλιέργεια των απαραίτητων δεξιοτήτων που συμβάλλουν στην επιτυχημένη ανάπτυξη επιχειρηματικών δράσεων, με άκρως πρακτικό χαρακτήρα. Το πρόγραμμα συνδυάζει πρακτικές ενότητες επιμόρφωσης σε περιβάλλον "workshop", καλώντας τους εκπαιδευόμενους να συμμετάσχουν ενεργά σε εργαστηριακά μαθήματα Η/Υ, αλλά και να σχηματίσουν ομάδες εργασίας προκειμένου να καταρτίσουν επιχειρηματικά σχέδια.

 

Το πρόγραμμα αποσκοπεί στην εξυπηρέτηση των ακόλουθων στόχων:

  • (α) Την απόκτηση εισαγωγικών γνώσεων και βασικών αρχών που σχετίζονται με τις έννοιες της επιχειρηματικότητας και της καινοτομίας, αλλά και την ενημέρωση σχετικά με όλα τα απαραίτητα βήματα που απαιτούνται, για την ανάπτυξη επιχειρηματικής δραστηριότητας.
  • (β) Την ανάπτυξη της ικανότητας αναγνώρισης και εκμετάλλευσης των κατάλληλων ευκαιριών, προκειμένου να αναπτυχθεί επιτυχής επιχειρηματική δράση.
  • (γ) Την επικαιροποίηση των τεχνικών γνώσεων των συμμετεχόντων επάνω σε θέματα τεχνολογιών αιχμής (διαδικτυακές εφαρμογές και εφαρμογές για φορητές συσκευές) και την εφαρμογή αυτών των γνώσεων στο πεδίο του η-Επιχειρείν.
  • (δ) Την απόκτηση των κατάλληλων γνώσεων που απαιτούνται για την κατάρτιση ενός ολοκληρωμένου επιχειρηματικού σχεδίου και την παροχή συμβουλευτικής, καθώς και επαναπληροφόρησης (feedback) σχετικά με το περιεχόμενό του, ωστέ να υπάρχει η δυνατότητα να κατατεθεί σε επόμενο στάδιο σε κάποιο φορέα προς έγκριση και ενδεχομένως προς χρηματοδότηση.

Course Summary

The International Hellenic University (www.ihu.edu.gr), in partnership with Charles University of Prague, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) of Cyprus and with the support of the LSEE-Research on South Eastern Europe is offering a 2-week intensive Summer Seminar for students and graduates of Political Science, History, Anthropology, International Relations, International Law, Journalism and other related disciplines. The course can be taken by both undergraduates and graduate students.

The general theme of the summer school is Nationalism, Religion and Violence in SE Europe. A key goal of the summer school is to contribute in a substantial way to the study of violence and to catalyze the growth of the study of violence as a field. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to forge valuable connections with one another and with senior scholars working on various aspects of violence.

The Seminar takes place from July 1-July 12 2013 in the premises of the International Hellenic University, Thessaloniki, Greece. Additional activities including trips to nearby sites of interest, museum and city tours, round out the seminar.

There will be a sequel to the course, to be held in Prague in summer 2014 with different but related thematic foci. Applicants interested to participate in both events will have a fee discount and receive an accredited double certificate of attendance.
