We launched the Greek-British Symposium in October 2017 in the historic city of Nafplio, Greece. This new bilateral forum - a privately-led and sponsorship-funded initiative, delivered by the organisers of Delphi Economic Forum with the support of the British Embassy and British Council Athens – is a chance to bring together leaders in policy, business, academia, media and culture from the UK and Greece to debate current global, regional and bilateral issues and trends; develop and deepen ties; and address the challenges and opportunities facing both our countries.
In keeping with our plan to alternate the Symposium between the UK and Greece each year, following a successful second year at Ditchley Park, Oxfordshire, the Symposium will return to Nafplio for a third installment 17-19 October 2019. More information about the venue and programme will be available here in the coming weeks and months.
This year the theme of the Symposium is “Building on the Past, Embracing the Future” which captures our aim to look back at the historic UK-Greece relationship over the centuries and how it continues to shape the current ties between our countries. Framed by this theme, presentations and panel sessions will cover the topics of: energy & infrastructure, research & technology, education, shipping, culture and creativity, shipping, philanthropy and diaspora, from a variety of perspectives.
