Introduction of the History of the Industrial Heritage in Greece
The MInistry of Culture has prepared since the late 1980’s recording cards for the inventory of the Industrial Heritage.
The National Technical University of Athens, School of Architecture– The Laboratory for Urban Environment, is developing, since 2005, a data base for the Industrial Heritage in Greece.
The Institute for Neohellenic Research (part of the National Research Center) has created several specialized data bases on thematic fields regarding Industrial Heritage.
