Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The rec­tor of Thes­sa­loniki’s Aris­to­tle Univer­sity, Yian­nis My­lopou­los, has said that the pres­ti­gious in­sti­tu­tion will be forced to shut down un­less it re­ceives ad­di­tional fund­ing. Speak­ing to Skai TV, My­lopou­los said that he had asked the gov­ern­ment for fund­ing to sup­port the univer­sity’s op­er­a­tion amid spec­u­la­tion about the clo­sure of sev­eral fac­ul­ties. He said that the univer­sity, which has seen its fund­ing cut by 55 per­cent, had been pledged 24 mil­lion eu­ros though it needs a min­i­mum of 36 mil­lion eu­ros to cover its op­er­at­ing costs.
