Alexander Koulidi’s lecture analyses the way in which the environmental dimension is integrated in the development planning through environmental licensing. The main aspects include concepts such as the adequacy of preventive action, the humanistic basis of environmental protection and the balancing character of environmental licensing. Then, the new institutional framework is analysed, with reference both to the origins of EU law and to mapping procedures applicable in practice. The content of environmental studies and the critical points of each chapter are also reviewed. Τhe lecture concludes with the presentation of practical environmental permit cases of major projects, which analyses the challenges that arise during the process, the requirements of the individual scientific issues and, finally, the practical results of the process.

Moreover, the interactive e-poster session will serve as a forum for exchanging bright new ideas regarding basic science, translational and clinical glioma research. The event is hosted in the hospitable city of Larissa, where Hippocrates practiced medicine and spent his last days. Larissa is located in the heart of the Greek mainland, less than an hour from the mythical Mt. Olympus, the unique Meteora monasteries and Pelion, the mountain of Centaurus.

Representatives from 10 European countries, the World Health Organization, the International Labour Organization as well as representatives from national, local, and regional stakeholders from Greece will participate in the Working Group.
PATHWAYS (PArticipation To Healthy Workplaces And inclusive Strategies in the Work Sector) is a 3-year EU Project that contributes to the “Development of innovative approaches to promote the professional (re)integration of people with chronic diseases and improve their employment status”. The increasing rate of chronic diseases and mental health issues as well as the current economic crisis intensify the challenges related to employment (re)integration of people with chronic diseases and mental health issues.

The University of Cincinnati archaeological excavations at the Palace of Nestor, Pylos resumed on May 18, 2015for the first time since 1969. During the course of the campaign, the so-called grave of the "Griffin Warrior" was discovered a few hundred meters from the Palace. This presentation will describe the excavation of this remarkable grave and discuss in detail the four gold rings found therein. The discovery of four gold rings in association with the male individual was unexpected and unprecedented. The iconography of these rings is extraordinary and of great significance for the study of Minoan and Mycenaean ideology in the early Late Bronze Age.This unique, undisturbed burial affords an unparalleled opportunity to examine aspects of Early Mycenaean funerary ritual, gender association with grave goods, and burial structure that cannot be obtained through more standard multi-individual burial contexts.
