Details concerning this initiative will be forthcoming.
Dr. Tanagras contributed to PF’s Scholarly Monograph series and his monograph is available for purchase in PF’s online store www.psi-mart.com Nikolaos’ long range plans include assisting in a parapsychology online Master’s course or financially supporting with the aid of his publishing enterprises a PhD in parapsychology under the distant-supervision of a well respected parapsychologist in the field.

Parapsychology Foundation is happy to assist Nikolaos in his studies and attempts to broaden parapsychology’s reach both in Greece and the world. He has been recently appointed the PF International Affiliate representing
