PANEKFE

The Hellenic Association of the Directors of Sciences Laboratory Center (PANEKFE) is the scientific association that organizes the 12th European Science Olympiad (EUSO 2014) in Athens. The main objective of PANEKFE is to promote experimental practice in the teaching of science in Elementary, Middle and High School. For this reason, organizes lectures, workshops, symposia, seminars, conferences, workshops, publications (print and electronic) and all kinds of activities with science and research content. The most important activity is the annual organization National Laboratory competition for the selection of the three-member student teams representing Greece in the competition of the European Science Olympiad.

Eugenides Foundation

The Eugenides Foundation was established in 1956 as a non-profit-making legal entity in private law. Its purpose was to implement the wishes expressed in the last testament of the late Eugenios Eugenides, a benefactor of the Greek nation. Registered and based in Athens, its founding charter states that its objective is to contribute to the education of young Greeks in science and technology.

The Foundation is administered by a board of three members, one of whom is always the serving Chancellor of the National Technical University of Athens. In recognition of its multi-faceted contribution to Greek society the Foundation was awarded the Gold Medal of the Athens Academy in December 1965.

National Technical University of Athens / School of Chemical Engineering

The National Technical University (NTUA) is the oldest and most prestigious educational institution of Greece in the field of technology, and has contributed unceasingly to the country's scientific, technical and economic development since its foundation in 1836. It is closely linked with Greece's struggle for independence, democracy and social progress. In Greek, NTUA is called the "Ethnicon Metsovion Polytechnion" which stands for National Metsovion Polytechnic. It was named "Metsovion" to honor the donors and benefactors Nikolaos Stournaris, Eleni Tositsa, Michail Tositsas and Georgios Averof, all from Metsovo, a small town in the region of Epirus, who made substantial donations in the last half of the 19th century. NTUA is divided into nine academic Schools, eight being for the engineering sciences, including architecture, and one for the general sciences. The personnel of the nine Faculties include more than 700 people as academic staff, 140 scientific assistants and 260 administrative and technical staff. The total number of NTUA employees is about 1350. The total number of undergraduate students is about 8500 and the graduate students 1500.

The School of Chemical Engineering, aims at training Engineers who will meet the present and future needs of the Country, as well as at developing their capability for original research, in order to provide answers to the problems of development in an international framework. Therefore, the Department tries to enrich the courses it offers with the most updated knowledge in Chemical Engineering, and with state-of-the-art solutions to industrial problems. Social and environmental problems are dealt with as integral parts of the Engineering Curriculum, and the optimal solutions to technical problems are always presented and judged with reference to such considerations. Furthermore, the development of the students personality is actively pursued, in order to make them appreciate the problems of Greece and the World at large, and to become responsible citizens and scientists, advising State and Industry on subjects of their scientific and technical competence.
