The Association of Greek Physicists is a non-profit scientific association founded in 1930. It represents the scientists of Physics throughout the Greek territory. Its fundamental objective is the development and support of all branches of Physics for the benefit of the scientific community and the wider society.
On an annual basis, it coordinates a number of educational activities aiming at the wider dissemination of knowledge and developments in the field of Natural Sciences. More specifically, it organizes educational conferences that provide information on the modern developments and achievements of the scientific community as well as training seminars aimed at training teachers and all interested parties. In addition, it is responsible for conducting student competitions, events and summer schools aimed at contacting the student community with advanced scientific concepts and integrating it into scientific research.
