He has established collaborations with partners across Europe and the Mediterranean and participated in 20 European and national research programs for cereals and legumes related to: plant breeding, evaluation of genotypes (e.g. landraces) fortolerance to abiotic and biotic stress, genetic diversity of landracesand genetic resources, adaption to climate changes and to low inputs,GxE interaction and stability of production, molecular techniques,quality parameters. He has published research work in scientific journals and in international and Greek conferences (70).
