Since 2009, the activities of ELIAMEP are funded exclusively by the private sector in Greece, collaborations with other similar foundations abroad, as well as research projects funded primarily by the European Commission.
In 2004, ELIAMEP launched the Institutional Partnership Programme, through which companies, entrepreneurs’ associations, embassies and other similar institutions can support the continuation and further development of the Foundation’s work.
ELIAMEP owns its premises that were acquired thanks mainly to the generosity of two major Greek foundations (Stavros Niarchos Foundation and Leventis Foundation). The renovation of the seminar room was financed by the Greek company, RAYCAP, for ELIAMEP’s 30th anniversary. These premises accommodate a steadily increasing number of researchers. Before the crisis, ELIAMEP received for some years financial support from Greek ministries, mostly from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However, this support never exceeded 25% of ELIAMEP’s relatively small budget and since 2008, it has ceased to exist.
Over the last years, EIAMEP has created a series of research positions funded through high-profile sponsorships, such as that of the Ioannis F. Costopoulos Foundation and the Leventis Foundation, the Bodossaki Foundation and the Saudi Arabian company Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC). These sponsorships promote ELIAMEP’s efforts to support young scientists of international scope and to actively participate in international networks and projects of the European Union.
Specific projects or actions of ELIAMEP have been supported by public or private institutions in Greece and abroad, such as the General Secretariat for Research and Technology, the Representation of the European Commission in Greece, the NATO Public Diplomacy Division, the Council of Europe, the European Parliament, the European Science Foundation, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, Stiftung Mercator, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
Over the course of the years, the sponsorships of the Alexandros S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation and the National Bank were extremely important both for the implementation of specific actions, as well as the overall functioning of ELIAMEP. Bank of Greece and Stavros Niarchos Foundation have supported ELIAMEP’s latest initiative, The Crisis Observatory. The support of Bank of Greece, TITAN Cement Company S.A., OTE S.A., S&B Industrial Minerals S.A., the Lilian Voudouris Foundation and the Efthymiadis Group in Thessaloniki, has also been very important for the effective functioning of the Foundation.
ELIAMEP would like to thank them for their valuable support.
