About us


The Institute of Modern Greek Studies (Manolis Triandaphyllidis Foundation) was founded in 1959 and its mission, as specified in its founder’s will, is the advance of science, the promotion of the Demotike Language and of Modern Greek philology as well as the promotion of Greek education in general. In this framework, the Institute, with its publications, has made a significant contribution to a wide range of scientific fields, including the study of the Greek language itself, the teaching of Greek, linguistics, and Ancient and Modern Greek philology.


Currently, G. M. Parassoglou acts as Chairman of the Board and G. Papanastassiou is the Institute’s Director. The Institute’s offices are located in room 418 of the New Building of the Faculty of Philosophy at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and in 152, Egnatia str., on the sixth floor, where the researchers and the friends of the Institute are always welcome.
