Mediterranean Excellence in Computing and Ontology

MECOnet Institute

MECOnet Institute is responsible for Advanced Research and Development in various fields of science and technology, with emphasis on computing and ontology. It is governed  by the boards composed of outstanding experts worldwide. 

One of the main activities of the Institute is the participation in different Projects.

The Institute also expects to be very active in Higher Education (all levels, BSc, MSc, PhD).

The MECOnet Socially Responsible ActivitiesPeriodically, MECOnet organizes e-discussions on the important issues of interest for computing and ontology in general, and for the research of Mediterranean countries in particular.
