Advanced Technology Higher Education Network/Socrates

The ATHENS week was established with the support of the European Communities SOCRATES Programme receiving an annual subsidy of 50 000 Euros from 1997-2001. Today, the Programme is mainly founded by contributions from the member institutions.
The ATHENS Programme is aimed at carrying out intensive specialization courses, given at each member institution during one or two defined periods ("Sessions") of the academic year (November and March), enabling students to attend one of the courses offered by the network universities during 7 days. This experience, in many cases, gives students the desire to carry out studies of a longer duration (MSc and PhD levels) at an institution different from their home institution and thus facilitates exchanges between students of the major European technological institutions.
