NKUA visited the ISARS/NOA in January 2009

NKUA visited the Institute for Space Applications and Remote Sensing at the National Observatory of Athens (ISARS/NOA http://www.space.noa.gr/isars/) in January 2009 and talked about the work in SemsorGrid4Env. ISARS (is the National Contact point for Greece in GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) and does a lot of work with government authorities with respect to forest fire monitoring in Greece. We presented the ideas of SemsorGrid4Env to this group and are planning very close collaboration for joint diploma and MSc theses, submission of proposals to national calls etc.
