On December 11th 2020, the Commander of NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Greece (NRDC-GR), Lieutenant General Dimitrios KOUKKOS and the President of the Governing Board of the International Hellenic University (IHU), Professor Athanassios KAISSIS, signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) between the two organizations.
The ceremony took place at NRDC-GR COM’s office, with limited public attendance, due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
The IHU consisting of nine Schools and thirty three departments was re-established in 2019 in its current location in Thessaloniki, following a merge with the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki, the former Technological Educational Institute of Central Macedonia and the former Technological Educational Institute of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace.
The aim of the MoC is to establish mutually beneficial synergies between NRDC-GR and the IHU as well as to create a link between research and training with society.
The ceremony was conducted in a cordial atmosphere and both officials expressed their commitment to a productive cooperation that will prove of great benefit for the military personnel of NRDC-GR and the academic society.
