The main research component (80%) is organised under International, European and National funding and collaborations since mid-1997. Research projects are listed here while major research outcomes are described in Geographical Information Systems in Oceanography and Fisheries and other peer-review and conference Marine GIS publications and Special Issues.

The educational/teaching component (20%) focuses on the Marine GIS familiarization of undergraduate and graduate students of various Hellenic and European universities under individual exercises and study rotations. Since 2002, many students attended the exercises and rotations and carried out the GIS component work of their MSc-PhD thesis. Teaching activities are further supported through Marie Curie Mobility Projects (Jan06-Dec09: MC-ECOSUMMER and Jan10-Apr12: MC-EFH/GIS).
