The Hellenic Society of Swedish Scholars (HSSS) is a network of former or potential scholarship holders of the Swedish Institute. The main aim of the Society is to help SI Alumni members who are Greek or live in Greece keeping in touch and develop good relationships. The HSSS is a local SI Alumni Association in Greece sponsored by the Swedish Institute in 2008. The Society also aims to help communicate research cultures and ideas between the two countries in order to learn from each other.
The society is open to people wishing to learn more about Sweden and studies in Sweden. It can also be a contact point for Swedish people, especially students and academics, wishing to live and study or research in Greece. The Society’s academic perspective is based on its current members, mainly students, university graduates and researchers.
It is in the interests of the HSSS to organise academic meetings, such as workshops, conferences and summer schools; cultural events such as book presentations an art exhibitions; business oriented events, such as career days and business networking workshops; and social events.
