The Technical University of Crete is particularly active in conducting basic and applied research. The research and development projects, managed by the Research Committee, are funded by the European Union, the General Secretariat for Research and Technology, the Ministry of Education, the Region of Crete, local administration organizations and many private businesses. A large number of TUC undergraduate and postgraduate students are employed in these projects; in this way, they benefit from the best possible training and they familiarize with conducting research.

The administrative management of all research, educational and development projects is handled by the Special Research Fund Account (ELKE).
