Figure 6.6.3 highlights the distribution (%) of publications with national*, international* and no collaboration* by each GSRT Research Center for the most recent 5-year period 2006-2010. In terms of the number of puiblications produced by networking activity, the majority of Research Centers were higher other Greek Institutions. There were only a few publications without partnerships. The ATHENA Research Center presented the highest percentage (23.3%) of publications with no collaboration, a value below the Greek average (32.8%).

Publications with international collaboration were higher than those with Greek- based institutions in the case of four Research Centers: BSCR FLEMING, NOA, NHRF and HCMR. BSCR FLEMING shows the sharpest pattern of association with international institutions in publications (66%).

The percentage of nationally-co authored publications ranged from 45.7% in HCMR and 91.6% in CE.RE.TE.TH. A high percentage above 70% was recorded for CERTH (79.6%), FORTH (75.7%) and ATHENA (71.8%).
