The Laboratory of Physical Geography has participated either as a coordinator or as a participating group in over 50 programs, co-funded by the European Union. Moreover, it has cooperated with municipalities, prefectures and civilians in researches relevant to Physical Geography. The total budget of all the above researches exceeds 5 millions, during the previous decade.
