The Greek-British Symposium is a bilateral forum – a privately led and largely sponsorship-funded initiative, delivered under the guidance of a Steering Committee, in partnership with the Delphi Economic Forum, and with the support of the British Embassy Athens and the British Council. This year we are particularly delighted to be also working in close cooperation with the Greek Embassy in London.

The Symposium was launched in October 2017, in Nafplion, Greece; continued the next year in Ditchley Park in the UK, and returned to Nafplion in 2019. In 2020 we delivered the Symposium in a hybrid format for safety reasons, with only a limited number of speakers gathering physically in Athens and the rest joining online. In 2022, we returned to a fully physical event hosted at Pembroke College, Oxford.

The event brings together leaders in policy, business, academia, media and culture from the UK and Greece for an annual exchange of views and ideas about the challenges and opportunities facing our countries and about strengthening and enriching the relationship.
