The Athens Center for Indian and Indo-Hellenic Studies, established in 2016 with the support of the Indo-Hellenic Society for Culture and Development (ELINEPA), aims to promote the study of India’s cultures, languages and traditions. The first center of its kind in Greece, it provides interdisciplinary study and critical analysis of the Indian subcontinent and its peoples from ancient times to the present. The Center’s curriculum, programs and activities are designed to build bridges between the Greek and Indian people who through their long lasting intercultural contacts decisively shaped those universal values that formed the basis of the European and Asian civilizations.
The Athens Center collaborates with other educational centers and specialized teachers in Greece, India and other countries and is headed by Indologist Professor and Chairman of ELINEPA Dr. Dimitrios Vassiliadis. Today it houses the research center and library and soon will be able to accommodate researches, scholars and artists visiting Athens.
