Environmental Heritage

A Panel on Communication, Diffusion and Information
in Research Relating to Cultural and Environmental Heritage

as part of the 2nd Annual International Symposium on Culture
29-31 May & 1 June 2017

The Human Development Division of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) organizes A Panel on Communication, Diffusion and Information in Research Relating to Cultural and Environmental Heritage29-31 May & 1 June 2017 as part of the 2nd Annual International Symposium on Culture.

Panel content brings together experimental sciences and humanistic sciences and, therefore, researchers and scientists, each with their own experience, competence and educational background: interdisciplinarity. This means going beyond national confines and dealing with countries possessing different economies and atavism: internationalization. Study in the cultural and environmental heritage sector must involve not only the protection of cultural heritage and human safeguard, involving the system: artifact-environment-biota, but also the importance of the business world of culture at the basis of its valorization: management covering economics, law, communication and diffusion.

Fee structure information is available on http://www.atiner.gr/fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.

The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of 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), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to: info@atiner.gr.
