Our activities can be divided into the following sections:
- Research Projects
Research projects constitute the main domain of activity at the Institute. They are developed either as autonomous projects or as supportive to other activities.
- Educational Activities
A variety of significant educational activities have been developed since 1993: seminars, compiling of new educational material, implementation of pilot programs in education and other music-related pedagogical research projects.
- Music Documentation Centre
The Music Documentation Centre constitutes a specialized section of our activities and works for the documentation and the rescuing of the Greek Music Heritage.
- Greek Music Archive
The Greek Music Archive is a result of the activities of the Music Documentation Centre; it is compiled through collaboration with other archives and collections, it is created in digital form and constitutes the largest and most complete in Greece.
- Music Information Centre
The Music Information Centre works autonomously for the provision of music information to the public, as well as with promoting Greek Music internationally.
Since its inauguration in 1989, IEMA has been organizing specific concerts and tributes, sometimes thus showing the way for the creation of start-ups like the “European Music Day” or the Festival of Music Improvisation.
The Institute has co-produced a number of conferences, whilst the organizing of the 1st Greek Convention on Music Research saw the start of a series of conferences and symposia concerning topics of interest of IEMA.
Specialized research and pedagogical publications, made either solely by the Institute, or in cooperation with other organizations.
Music researchers have presented their work in the “IEMA Lectures Cycle” that were held in the years 1996-1999. Today anyone interested in the lectures that take place at IEMA can subscribe to our weekly newsletter.
