The University of Patras is implementing since 1998 the "K. Karatheodori" program addressed to research capacity. It is one of the ways to strengthen basic research. After two years without advertised understeer because of the reduced appropriations, by decision of the Research Committee announced in 2013 the call for new proposals to finance research projects two categories: (a) basic research with main beneficiaries young researchers (graduate and doctoral candidates) and (b) fundamental research main beneficiaries experienced researchers (post-doctoral).

The objective of the "K. Karatheodori" Program is to strengthen the faculty members of lower grades mainly to enable them to implement their research ideas and strengthen their research activities and to support young researchers and experienced post-doctoral researchers.
