Dr Athos Agapiou is currently acting as a Contracted Lecturer and Researcher A at the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics of the Cyprus University of Technology. Athos holds a PhD from the Department of Civil and Geomatics Engineering of the Cyprus University of Technology. He was awarded with two Master of Science (MSc) in the fields of “Geoinformatics” (School of Rural and Surveying Engineering, National Technological University of Athens) and “Surveying Engineering” from the same Department after the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications. In addition, he holds one Master of Arts (MA) in the field of “Archaeology” from the Department of History and Archaeology, of the University of Cyprus. During his studies he has received several awards and scholarships (PhD Scholarship, Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation, Greece (2010-2013); Postgraduate Scholarship for better performance during MSc “Geoinformatics", studies, National Technological University of Athens (2006–2007); Scholarship Greece State Scholarships Foundation (2002–2003): Award by the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE) for the best performance in the third year courses during undergraduate studies, National Technological University of Athens (2002–2003), and Scholarship Archbishop Makarios III for undergraduate studies (2000–2005).

During the past years he has published several articles in international journals, chapters of books and papers in proceedings of international conferences, while he has also been involved as key researcher in several funded projects.

Currently Athos is acting as the Chair of the CAA-Gr (National Chapter of the ‘Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology’), National Delegate of Cyprus for “Space” in the H2020 calls, while he was recently granted with the Cyprus Research Awards Competition, “Young Researcher 2018”.
