Description

The Lambrakis Foundation is a non-profit research and development private institution of public interest, founded in 1991 in Athens, Greece. The Foundation serves the common good by undertaking research, studies, pilot projects and awareness activities in critical areas for Greece and Europe. It addresses the increasing needs for human resources policies and human capital development, with a focus on the fields of education and culture within the framework of European initiatives.

Through the years, the Lambrakis Foundation has built an extended local network of expert consultants and research fellows, and has monitored state-of-the-art practice at international level via its involvement in joint projects, mainly with European partners. The Foundation’s partnerships include European and international organisations (e.g. the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the European University Association, the European Distance Education Network, the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities, the European SchoolNet, the European Parents Association) as well as ministries, national education agencies, universities, research centres, museums and private sector partners, mainly from the media and ICT industry (companies and associations such as the eLearning Industry Group).

In 2006 the Lambrakis Foundation initiated and coordinated the «Initiative for Learning and Human Capital Growth» project in Greece, along with seven other leading private non-profit Foundations, and collaborated with the Greek Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Employment, the Pedagogical Institute, the Association of Trade Unions, and the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research. Moreover, it has set up and maintains the e-paideia.net portal, serving the evolving needs of the Greek educational community, and the migrants.gr portal (which is currently under redesign) to serve the needs of the growing migrant community and policymakers in Greece.
