TALOS is currently participating in POLYDIAGNO (project code 11SYN-7-1503), which is a research project implemented through the Operational Program ‘‘Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship’’, Action “Cooperation 2011” and is co-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund) and Greek national funds (National Strategic Reference Framework 2007 - 2013).

POLYDIAGNO is a research project focused on the monitoring and diagnosis of polymer based outdoor insulators used in high voltage applications,with a budget of over 0.5 M E and the research scheme includes HEDNO (Talos), the Technological Educational Institute of Crete, the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas and ENTEC Green Economy Consultant.
