The Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (MAICh) was created in accordance with Law 4443/64, which established Greece as a founder-member of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM). Its foundation took place under Law 1537/85, which was passed by the Greek Parliament following the provision of Article 28, paragraph 1 of the Constitution (after at least a 2/3 majority of members in favour). The Centre constitutes an international organisation whose aim is the development of scientific cooperation in the sectors of economics, rural development, management, and applied biological, technological and environmental sciences, addressing to problems in the Mediterranean area. The Mediterranean Agronomic Institutes of Bari (Italy), Montpellier (France) and Saragoza (Spain) are constituent Institutes of the same organisation. The annual budget contribution of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania is entirely provided by the Greek government.The Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania offers post-graduate specialist studies (over a period of two academic years), leading to the degree of Master of Science (). Courses are conducted in the English language by visiting professors from Greek, European, American and Mediterranean Universities in cooperation with the Institute.
