ATHENS (Advanced Technology Higher Education Network /Socrates)
Created in 1997, the ATHENS Network is made up of 14 European technological universities and nine ParisTech Graduate Schools of Engineering, which coordinates the programme.
The principal goal of the Network is to facilitate the exchange of students, teachers and researchers from major European technological universities and to participate together under European technological development and training programmes.
The ATHENS programme is a 7-day scientific and cultural exchange programme offered twice a year in November and March to students from all partner institutions.
This activity is called the ATHENS week.
Around 4,000 students participate in the exchanges every year.
