The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) was established in 1995 as an independent academic organization with the mission to become a forum where academics and researchers from all over the world could meet in Athens and exchange ideas on their research and discuss the future developments of their discipline. Since 1995, more than 60 international conferences were organized and more than 50 books have been published. The Institute is organized into four research divisions and seventeen research units. Each research unit organizes at least an annual conference and undertakes various small and large research projects.
