National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
The vision of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) is based on four main principles: 1) Research, education, and training shall be characterised by a quest for high quality and distinction; 2) The University’s leading role shall be safeguarded by a constant engagement in innovation and creativity; 3) Academic community members shall participate actively in scientific, social, and cultural events; 4) Our standpoints shall reflect our historical and contemporary Greek culture worldwide through scientific activities. NKUA is a research university and, as a leader since 1837, it aims to advance knowledge and educate students in sciences and arts who will best serve the nation and the community of the 21st century. Committed to innovation and academic excellence, we seek to infuse each member of our academic community with passion for research and knowledge gain. We encourage cultivation of creativity, maturation of social and cultural sensibilities as well as critical thinking, by supporting free and open dialogue and a culture of integrity and diversity.
