Education Min Attends Event on University Extroversion

ATHENS – Education Minister Niki Kerameus presented the progress of the International Academic Partnership Programme at an event in Washington organised by the Ministry of Education and Science and the Institute of International Education “with the aim of highlighting and further expanding Greek-American cooperation in higher education”, according to a statement on Thursday.

Representatives of 20 top US universities, such as Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Stockton and the University of Texas, outlined their own experience from participating in this programme.

Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), Lee Satterfield, also attended the event.

“Today we took another step towards strengthening the extroversion of our universities, we opened another window to knowledge, science and research. This is a change of philosophy, a shift to a more extroverted, dynamic system of higher education in Greece, which is gaining an important place on the international academic map,” Kerameus said, according to the announcement.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
