Meanwhile director of the Archaeological Sciences Laboratory at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Panagiotis Karkanas, and Economic Theory and Policy Professor Anastasios Xepapadeas from Athens University of Economics and Business were selected to come on board as foreign associates.
