University of Crete

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Crete was founded with the specific intention that it be a research-driven entity.

Indeed, its graduate program existed and was strengthened for several years before the instigation of an undergraduate program was even considered. The Department has lived up to its founding principles for today it boasts a vibrant and strong research environment that has succeeded in attracting the highest quality researchers and is having ever-increasing success at bringing in a diverse range of funding.


In April 2013, the Department of Chemistry was ranked first (1st) in Greece by external Quality Assessment Audit.
