As part of its corporate responsibility, ELBISCO introduces a scholarship programme for Ph.D. candidates of the Department of Communication, Media and Culture at Panteion University in Athens.

The scholarship entitled “Dimitra Filippou Greek Culture Scholarship” will offer a monthly stipend for students working on a doctoral dissertation in Cultural Studies with an emphasis on topics related to Greek society in the modern era.

The academic and economic framework of the scholarship programme has been set out in the Scholarship Memorandum signed between ELBISCO and Panteion University on 28 September 2016.

ELBISCO implements a dynamic outreach strategy, drawing strength from the wisdom and values of Greek cultural heritage. In this context, it has adopted the support of academic research on issues related to modern Greek culture as a central pillar of its corporate responsibility.

“In Greece, our diet is not just a means of survival and nutrition, but also an element of the culture that is inextricably linked to social customs, traditions, emotional ties and rules.  We are especially pleased to be embarking on this cooperation with Panteion University. We hope that through this partnership, we will contribute to producing knowledge and to highlighting the invaluable cultural assets of Greece,” Ms Dimitra Filippou said.

According to the terms of the programme, ELBISCO will determine the number of scholarships, while the support for each recipient will be granted for a period up to three years.
