The Information Technologies Institute (former Informatics and Telematics Institute) (CERTH-ITI) was founded in Thessaloniki, in 1998, as a non-profit organization. Since 2000 it has been a founding member of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) and has participated in more than 50 EC IST/ICT and in more than 85 national projects. In the last 10 years, the researchers of ITI have produced more than 200 journal papers, more than 500 conference publications and more than 65 book chapters. CERTH-ITI is very active in areas including Decision Support Systems, Pattern Recognition, Multimedia and network technologies, Virtual and augmented reality, and Computer Vision. CERTH-ITI is currently involved, either as a coordinator or a participating partner, in numerous national and international projects (mostly with the FP7). Its current involvement with FP7 Remote Sensing-related projects includes the active participation in "BIOdiversity Multi-Source Monitoring System: from Space TO Species - BIO-SOS" (FP7-SPA.2010.1.1-04- 263435) and in "Fire Detection and Management through a Multi-Sensor Network for the Protection of Cultural Heritage Areas from the Risk of Fire and Extreme Weather Conditions - FIRESENSE" (FP7-ENV-2009-1–244088) projects. In addition, CERTH-ITI was involved via its researcher Dr. Ioannis Manakos in the geoland2 (towards an operational GMES Land Monitoring Core Service) (FP7-SPA.2007.1.1.01- 218795), where he was responsible for the Team of the Sound Scientific Review of the produced land cover/ land use classification methodologies for the creation of Pan-European coverage of various thematic map and service products.
