Contract signed for creation of International University of Greece
contract on the creation of the International University of Greece, as well as the utilisation of real estate belonging to the municipality of Nea Mihaniona, near Thessaloniki, was signed on Monday by the municipality and the State Real Estate Company, in the presence of Education Minister Marietta Yiannakou.
The signing of the contract in essence paves the way for the beginning of the University’s construction, since according to the State Real Estate Company’s managing director Costas Gratsios, the first awarding of a study will begin at the end of 2007 and the first awarding of a project in the second half of 2008.
The first facilities are expected to operate in 2010 or 2011 and until then the University will be operating temporarily at the installations of the PASEGES confederation (as of early 2008).
