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 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 200 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 150 books. In 2012,  the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into six Research Divisions and twenty-seven 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. The members of the Institute are invited to undertake a number of academic activities. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form).
