A crucial matter for the Center for Modern Greece is the historical approach to the study of the cultural transfer between the German and Greek cultural spaces starting from the 18th century up to this day. This is being realized through:
- scientific events such as workshops and conferences
- the compilation of bibliographic collections, a digital Knowledge Base, and an Encyclopedia on German-Greek Entanglements,
- the work on specific research projects
- research scholarships for postgraduate and early career scholars who research in this area and whose results are published in the knowledge base.
