The Centre for Byzantine Research -now Section of Byzantine Research of the Institute of Historical Research/HNRF -was established in 1960 for the purpose of promoting the study of Byzantine history and civilization. The Section's research activities are organised in programmes which cover a wide range of research fields and expertise. Individual and collective studies are based on written sources, literary and archival, works of art and archaeological findings. The programmes also investigate relations between Byzantium and medieval Europe, the Balkans and the eastern Mediterranean.

The Section participates in the international community of Byzantine studies with its long-term programmes, its scholarly publications and the staff's systematic participation in international conferences in Greece and abroad.

The Section hosts international conferences and colloquia which explore topics relevant to the scientific activities of its Programs. Academics and visiting researchers from Greece and abroad are invited to give lectures and seminars which are attended by the IHR staff and postgraduate students.
