The Greek Association of Research on Ancient Greek and Byzantine Technology (ΕΔΑΒυΤ) is an urban non-profit scientific company, founded in order to cultivate scientific research and disseminate historical knowledge about the technological achievements of Ancient Greeks, including the Byzantine era.
This purpose is served with more than three hundred open meetings of the Society, where relevant scientific objects are presented and discussed, with the organization of at least 10 workshops and presentations of books and films related to ancient Greek technology, with more than 15 visits/tours for the public, with at least 13 operational models and large-scale models in Greece and abroad, with the organization of four International conferences specifically on ancient Greek technology, with systematic seminars to teachers and tutors on subjects of ancient Greek technology, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, with the edition of three books with ancient technological objects.
ΕΔΑΒυΤ members and friends amount to about two hundred (200) people.
With all the above, it is estimated that ΕΔΑΒυΤ has ultimately contributed, for thirty-five years, to the significant change of attitude of Greek society towards the fundamental component of Ancient Greek Civilization, which is Technology, as well as in development of parallel activities in our country with the same goal. The important enrichment of the Greek bibliography about the Ancient Greek Technology, by members of ΕΔΑΒυΤ, has also contributed to the same purpose. Last but not least, through the work of ΕΔΑΒυΤ, the cooperation of distinguished Greek archaeologists with technical scientists has become extremely productive.
