What is EUNIC?
EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture) is an association of European Union national or official cultural bodies who represent their countries’ cultural and, in many cases, educational relations with other countries.
The primary aim of EUNIC Greece is to encourage existing European cultural institutes in Greece to work on joint programmes and projects with each other and with Greek partners – public and private.
- The EUNIC Athens cluster was established on 10 June 2008. Eighteen European cultural institutes based in Athens have signed an unofficial Memorandum of Understanding.
- The EUNIC Thessaloniki cluster was established on 5 July 2012 with the participation of five cultural institutes based in Thessaloniki.
The main purpose of the association is to create effective partnerships and networks between the participating organisations, to improve and promote cultural diversity and understanding between European societies, and to strengthen international dialogue and co-operation within and outside Europe.
