Welcome to

2023 Sino-Hellenic Higher Education Workshop

18 September

Fostering Partnerships, Igniting Innovations

About the Workshop

Between China and Greece, a strategic partnership is being established. This relationship is based on the respect and resonance each country holds for the other as representatives of two great civilizations, which have long-standing origins. This mutual respect and resonance allow for the creation of trusting and synergistic relationships. Trust and synergy serve as the foundation for various forms of solid cooperation, which are already being expressed and will further manifest in the field of bilateral relations, particularly in culture and education, including higher education. It is an ongoing endeavor that has just begun and possesses immense potential, despite the challenges and difficulties that undoubtedly exist, to positively influence future generations and reshape the world as we know it.

Workshop Description

The aim of the Forum is to analyze in-depth the opportunities and challenges of international cooperation in higher education between Greece and China, with a particular focus on student and faculty exchange programs, Joint/Duel/Double Degree (JDD) programs, and more.

Participants will have the chance to interact with one another and listen to the perspectives of representatives from the Greek Government, the Chinese Embassy, and scholars from various esteemed institutions.
