The Hellenic Pasteur Institute (HPI), a member of the Institut Pasteur International Network, is a non-profit research foundation that operates through a bilateral agreement between the Greek Government and the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France. Since its establishment in 1920, the HPI remains faithful to its mission, which is the prevention and treatment of Diseases through Basic Research, Education and Public Health Services.
Education at HPI focuses on the training of young scientists (PhD, MsC and diploma students) and the dissemination of specialized scientific information to specific public target audiences. Besides the training of young future researchers in the HPI laboratories, HPI researchers organize national and international training courses/workshops for researchers and graduate students on cutting-edge technologies in biosciences. Additionally, in the context of Science and Society activities, the HPI has organized courses on biosciences and bioethics for secondary school teachers and hosts secondary- and primary-school students’ visits for educational purposes.
