Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
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.
