The Athens University of Economics and Business hosted the HERMES annual Conference for 2021

This year, the HERMES network annual Conference was organized by AUEB on October 14 and 15, 2021.

The HERMES network, founded in 1997, today consists of 26 well-known universities in 15 countries (3,589 courses, 754 teachers).

AUEB has been a member of the HERMES network since 2010, under which it has already signed - since December 2020 - the first dual degree cooperation agreement between the Department of Statistics and the University of Pavia.

The Vice Rector for International Cooperation and Growth, Professor Vasilios Papadakis, stated: “The Athens University of Economics and Business is the only Greek University that participates in the international universities network HERMES. It is a network of high-quality Universities not only from Europe but also from the United States of America and China. It is our honour to host HERMES annual conference, while expanding as much as possible the possibilities of cooperation both at the research level and at the level of exchange of students and administrative staff. An important goal for AUEB is the dual degrees development at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, such as the recent cooperation with the University of Pavia. Such, value-added collaborations, offer the possibility to our students to receive a degree both from the AUEB and a collaborating academic institution of high quality. Our strategic goal remains internationalization with a focus on quality”.
