Researchers of the Harokopio University of Athens have established strong research collaboration with colleagues in US Institutions over the years.

The Fulbright program has supported many of these endeavors over the years, while there is a significant number of Fulbright alumni among our staff members.

Further nourishing the existing research collaboration with U.S. institutions, the University since 2017 undertook the initiative to promote student mobility and exchange programs. To this end, we established MoUs with the Rutgers State University of New Jersey and George Mason University.
