ATHENS Programme: "The little Erasmus"

The ATHENS network (Advanced Technology Higher Education Network/SOCRATES) is formed by:

  • 10 University Centres related to the engineering.
  • 10 Big Colleges of Paris (ParisTech Group).

The ATHENS programme offers one-week courses in all the member Institutions. These courses consist of 30 teaching hours and of 15 hours of cultural activities. After an exam or final work, the Host Institution awards a diploma.

  • They are free and the UPM offers a travel grant (type 1).
  • The registration process and the course catalog are in the ATHENS's website.
  • There are two sessions, in March and November. The SREI informs about each call.
  • You are able to participate in several sessions but the new students will have priority.
