The Institute’s members work collaboratively across the global network to innovate interdisciplinary projects, services, and events, by which they share their perspective and expertise with the general public. The Diakron Institute is currently supporting the development and realization of a wide-range of multi-cultural and interdisciplinary activities including a blind-accessible eco-cultural tour of the PNALM, a bear-tracking/art expedition in Slovakia, an underwater archaeology seminar in southern Italy, a cultural tour of the Cycladic islands in Greece, scientific research about the golden jackal expansion in Europe, and an accessible platform for the publication of audio/video recordings of natural, undisturbed animal behavior, “An Eye on the Wild.”
