The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) was established

in 1995 as an independent academic organization with the mission to

become a forum, where academics and researchers - from all over the

world - could meet in Athens and exchange ideas on their research and

discuss the future developments of their discipline. Since 1995, ATINER

has organized more than 100 international conferences and has published

over 100 books. Academically, the Institute consists of four research

divisions and nineteen research units. Each research unit organizes at
