Welcome to ATINER

This is the official website of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER). The Institute was established in 1995 as an independent world member-based association of academics and researchers.  Its mission is to act as a forum where academics and researchers from all over the world can meet and exchange ideas on their research, and discuss the future developments in their disciplines. Athens was chosen as the meeting place because of its long history and culture.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, as well as Research and Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012,  the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here) with close to 1500 papers on various subjects, and in 2014 a series of e-journals (click here).

Academically, the association is organized into seven Research Divisions and thirty-nine Research Units.  Each Research Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference and undertakes various small and large research projects. ATINER encourages other Institutions to participate as joint members in these research projects.

Since 2012, the Institute has also organized a number of smaller events, such as roundtable discussions and public speeches (click here for details). For press releases on these events and other activities please click here.

Membership of ATINER is open to all academics and researchers from all over the world. The list of the current membership is available on: academic members. Currently, ATINER has 1200 members from about 100 different countries. Members are invited to undertake a number of academic activities.
