The Institute’s Annual Open Meetings normally take place during the spring semester, and since 2010 they have been held in the lecture hall of the nearby Acropolis Museum. The programme includes a presentation of recent work at the Institute by its Director, followed by a lecture that highlights Swedish research into ancient Mediterranean civilizations.
