Students' thesis

Studies at NEO are linked to the research activities taking place in Greece and around the Mediterranean. Students meet with NEO researchers, and integrate into different groups by taking a first glimpse of how research is organized and carried out. A number of BSc, MSc and PhD theses have been completed so far with more coming up!
