The NKUA Athens Applied Philosophy Research Laboratory was established in 1999 as an autonomous unit attached to the Department of Philosophy of the University of Athens. Lab’s Director is Evangelos D. Protopapadakis, Assistant Professor of Applied Ethics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The initial purpose of the Lab's establishment was to facilitate research in the area of applied philosophy and provide support to students and faculty members. The Lab is also committed to conduct empirical and/or theoretical research in all areas of philosophy, with particular focus on Ethics, Metaethics and Applied Ethics. The Lab seeks to further and convey knowledge on areas of philosophical research by means of hosting post-graduate programs of study, publishing works of original philosophical research as well as journals, and organizing conferences. Since 2016 it hosts the UNESCO Greek Chair of Bioethics.
Lab also publishes Conatus - Journal of Philosophy in a biannual publication. Conatus is an international open-access peer reviewed academic journal (both print and electronic) dedicated to the dissemination of original philosophical research. The journal invites original unpublished papers within any field of Philosophy or application of philosophical method to any areas of intellectual and practical life. Conatus is the result of the partnership of the NKUA Applied Philosophy Research Laboratory and the National Documentation Center, the latter providing ePublishing, indexing and abstracting services.
