Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute, a non-profit research and technological development (RTD) organization was founded in 1985 in Thessaloniki, Greece. From 1987 to March 2000, Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute was a member of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), headquartered in the island of Crete. In March 2000, Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute became a founding member of a new research center, the Center for Research and Technology-Hellas (CERTH), established in Thessaloniki and administered by the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT) of the then Ministry of Development, while in October 2009 GSRT became part of the Ministry of Culture, Education and Religious Affairs. CERTH until today is the sole research center existing in Northern Greece, within the regions of Macedonia and Thrace. The European Commission and GSRT have supported the initial development of CPERI’s facilities and infrastructure through several regional structural grants.
The development strategy of Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute has been based on establishing strategic collaborations with leading international industrial corporations, developing strong links with Research Centers and Universities within the European Research Area (ERA) and contributing to the training of young scientists and engineers in state-of-the- art technologies. Acting as a catalyst of regional development Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute is also consistently pursuing strong interactions and collaborations with small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) in Northern Greece.
