Pharos Future Dialogues

Shaping the Future of the Hellenic-American Cooperation in Higher Education

Identifying resources to boost academic collaborations

International academic partnerships are always filled with a variety of opportunities and challenges. Serving as a platform to promote enhanced collaboration between American and Greek universities, IAPP Greece is a support mechanism offering consultation services, sharing input and ideas, and providing tools to address the challenges, unlock possibilities and create more opportunities.

In this context, SiG together with the IIE and Fulbright Greece will be hosting a series of thematic virtual discussions that could be useful for U.S. and Greek participants, including topics such as:

  • Funding mechanisms to boost academic collaborations  
  • Semester abroad programs and summer schools
  • 2+2 agreements, joint degrees and other forms of curricular collaboration
  • Development of MoUs and credit transfer issues

The first event of the series, titled: Identifying resources to boost academic collaborations, will be taking place on February 7, at 18:00 (Greece), and places particular focus on funding mechanisms to support programming, including exchanges, joint degrees and research programs. 

This virtual celebration will mark a significant milestone in our ongoing journey to foster sustainable academic partnerships between U.S. and Greek higher education institutions. It is not just a mere reflection on the past; it’s a powerful testament to our commitment to the future. It symbolizes the unwavering dedication of both nations to elevate the realm of higher education, push boundaries, and explore uncharted territories in academia. 

This is an excellent opportunity to showcase the collaborative efforts and accomplishments of our institutions, as well as to share ideas, and present our plans for the exciting future of the Greek – U.S. Collaboration in Higher Education.
