The strategic goal of the Hellenic Center for Sinology of the Ionian University is the development of Sinology and Chinese Studies in Greece, as well as the investigation, assessment and proposal of policies for the sustainability and the response to threats against tangible and intangible cultural heritage. The Center will support the mobility and joint research projects in which scholars from Greece and China will participate and will support - within the programs of the Academic Departments of the Ionian University - courses and seminars related to China such as (indicatively) Chinese philosophy, culture, cultural heritage, cultural diplomacy, translation and interpretation jointly pursuing the emergence of master's, doctoral and post-doctoral degree holders in the fields of Sinology and Chinese Studies. The Center will be staffed by academic and administrative staff from both universities.
