The Athens Center for Indian and Indo-Hellenic Studies (ACIIHS) established in 2016, by the Indologist professor and president of ELINEPA Dr. Dimitrios Vasiliadis and the generous support of the Hellenic-Indian 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 ACIIHS collaborates with other educational centers and specialized teachers in Greece, India and third countries. Today it houses the research center and library, while it regularly organizes live and online courses, as well as international conferences and lectures in the wider field of Indology and Greek-Indian studies.
