Created in 1997, the ATHENS Network (Advanced Technology Higher Education Network / SOCRATES) 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.
One of the Network's first and most particular actions concerns the organisation of an intensive programme of coursework taught at each member institution during one or two sessions in November and March. This activity is called the ATHENS week.
