BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE ORGANISATION
The Department of Electrical Engineering of Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) was founded in 1975 and was the second Department to be founded as part of the Engineering Faculty of Xanthi. In 1977 the first regular and temporary Professors were elected to reach up to a total 37 members of Teaching and Research Staff (TRS) nowadays. There are also 1 member of Scientific Teaching Staff (STS), 3 members of Laboratory Teaching Staff (SLTS) and 5 members of Special Technical Laboratory Staff (STLS). Specifically, the TRS counts 21 Professors, 11 Associate Professors and 5 Assistant Professors. Today the Department’s Sectors are Power Systems, Electronics and Information Systems Technology, Telecommunications and Space Science Sector
Software and Application Development, Physics and Applied Mathematics.
Contractual research in Democritus University of Thrace is done under the supervision
of the Research Committee of DUTH. The Research Committee (ELKE/DUTH) is an independent part of the University, a law body, exclusively responsible for the management of the contractual research within the University. In the last years ELKE/DUTH has collaborated with several partners (Universities, Research Centres, Companies) for the implementations of Research and Development Projects.
HOW THE ORGANISATION WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DISSEMINATION AND EXPLOITATION OF THE PROJECT RESULTS
The target groups of the dissemination activities inside our partnership can be:
• Students & academia - National and EU level
• Higher Education Institutions - National and EU level
• Industry and Research Institutions - National level and EU level
• Other stakeholder groups (including technical chambers and associations) - National and EU level
In particular, we can help to reach a wider segment of academic institutions and people through our exchange courses, videos, social media and academic papers (conferences where we may participate).
Project results can be disseminated in the undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc and PhD) courses, workshops and webinars organized by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (DECE) of Democritus University of Thrace.
Results can be also disseminated through small-scale events and workshops that may be organized by the DECE student branches (IEEE, IAESTE, EESTEC, etc. ).
Our expertise on power systems can be used to provide training, discussions and presentations on the relevant topics and results of the project.
Regarding the industrial sector we can exploit the project results via the already established collaborations we have (national and international projects)
