The excavations in Aigai are directed by Prof. Dr. Ersin Doğer from Ege University in Izmir, in collaboration with the Celal Bayar University of Manisa and the municipality of the city of Manisa, under the authority and with the permission of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey
Earthquakes, volcanism and the collision of continents are an expression of the dynamic processes of the interior of our planet. For humans it is important to study these processes because they are causing not only natural hazard but also the forming of mineral resources and oil and gas reservoirs. Geophysics investigates the interior of the earth a.o. the structure and evolution of the continents, ocean basins and mountain ranges. Based on tomography and other physical techniques, Applied Geophysics contributes significantly to exploring mineral, hydrocarbon and groundwater resources and other subsurface objects.
the focus of geophysical research at Kiel University (CAU) is on:
- Marine Geophysics,
- Environmental, archeological and geotechnical applications of geophysics,
- Earthquakes and the structure of the earth's crust and mantle,
- Computer simulation and 3D interpretation methods.
The Joint Research Unit "Archaeology and Philology of East and West" (UMR 8546) is a joint venture between CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique) and the ENS (École normale supérieure), in partnership with the EPHE (École Pratique des Hautes Études). It studies societies, languages and ancient cultures by combining archaeological, numismatic, philological, historical and linguistic approaches. Particular attention is paid to the phenomena of cultural transfer between traditional civilizations and so-called peripheral cultures, from protohistory to the early Middle Ages.
Close scientific partnerships within the ENS are developing now, especially with the departments of Computer Science and Geosciences. The scope of the research unit covers now all the topics of the laboratory of excellence ›TransferS‹ (Cultural transfers, translations, interfaces) of the Excellence Initiative at the University PSL* (Paris, Sciences and Letters), to which it is a key partner.
The mission of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) is to conduct and facilitate research worldwide in the archaeological sciences and classical studies. Through its research projects the DAI creates an important foundation for dialogue between cultures, for international scientific collaboration and for the preservation of cultural heritage. The DAI is active on five continents in over 350 projects.
The Istanbul Department was founded in 1929 to celebrate the DAI’s 110th anniversary. Since then, the department has been responsible for significant excavation sites including Aizanoi, Boğazköy, Göbekli Tepe, Didyma, Milet, Pergamon, and Priene. Research projects ranging from the prehistory of Anatolia and Thrace to the Ottoman era shape the department’s profile.
IFEA (French Institute for Anatolian Studies) is a French Research Center located in Istanbul supervised by both the Foreign Affairs and the CNRS (USR3131). It aims at developping research project in the field of Human and Social Sciences, focused on Ancient Anatolia, the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey.
Prehistoric and Protohistoric Archaeology and Archaeology of the Roman Provinces is a branch of the historical and cultural studies devoted to the recovery and analysis of archaeological sources. The teaching and research of the institute focuses on the archaeology of ancient Europe and neighboring regions (where appropriate), from the first appearance of man in the Paleolithic more than 2 million years ago up to the Early and High Middle Ages when written sources become available in significant quantities. However, increasing attention is now being paid to the archaeology of the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period. The activities of the institute include also teaching and research in bioarchaeology and an intensive collaboration with the Munich ArchaeoBioCenter.
PACEA (De la Préhistoire à l’Actuel. Culture, Environnement et Anthropologie) is a joint research unit (UMR 5199) attached to the CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique), the University of Bordeaux and the Ministry of Culture and Communication as well as associated to INRAP (Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives) by a framework agreement. Three subject areas structure the research carried out there:
1) From biodiversity to bioarchaeology,
2) Archaeology of death, rituals and symbols,
3) Milieu, settlement, lifestyles.
