The Institute for the Study of Regional History and Business History - in English - (ISRHHE) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 by a group of historians, economists, anthropologists and social scientists. The objective of the institute is to actively promote research in regional history and business history in Greece. To achieve this goal, the institute has carried out many activities over the past 21 years, in particular publications, organization of events, conferences and historical walks. Some of the sub-objectives of the Institute are linked to the active search for public exchanges with stakeholders. Fields of history region and entrepreneurship are largely unknown to the public and have no connection with society. The Institute therefore seeks to engage with stakeholders in primary and secondary education. In addition, through various actions, the institute itut seeks to create the necessary incentives for the protection of archival sources and concepts related to local history.
One of the important aspects of the Institute's activities are educational walks and visits related to local history in order to familiarize citizens with their environment and its history. Groups vary from school students to local historians to citizens of all ages. http://imtiie.gr
