ATHENS – Education Minister Niki Kerameus is scheduled to have meetings with representatives of U.S. universities, Greek-American community teachers and her U.S. counterparts while visiting the United States, education ministry sources said on Monday.
She is also scheduled to participate in a round table discussion on cooperation between Greek and U.S. universities in the 21st century.
“The education ministry has made the extroversion of Greek universities one of the top goals for tertiary education,” the sources said, noting that collaboration between Greek universities and American institutions has already begun, while there is also cooperation on the level of primary and secondary education.
“The vision is for Greece to become a educational centre with global appeal, which attracts students, teachers and researchers throughout the world. An education system that not only exports top notch scientists but also attracts them,” they added.
