ATHENA stands for Advanced Technology Higher Education Network Alliance; the name encompasses core elements that shape our alliance: innovative technologies, higher education, and international exchange. ATHENA is made up by nine European universities that are jointly developing attractive, flexible and practice-oriented research and teaching programmes.
