The Fulbright Education Network – Greece is a Fulbright alumni/a initiative that emerged from the “Train the Trainers” event that took place in Thessaloniki in 2014. The objective behind it is the organization of workshops or annual events for the exchange of teaching practice methodologies, project outcomes, counseling case studies and pedagogical insights with the broader educational community in addition to the dissemination and implementation of research results from the Fulbright SUSI programs. It particularly aims at forging connections and collaborations between educators as well as promoting cross-cultural understanding and interdisciplinary education.
