The NIKI award has been created
by sculptor Costas Ananidas 

The Friends of AIT honor prominent Greeks, or personalities of Greek descent who are internationally recognized for their contribution to science and technology and for inspiring a new generation of scientists to follow in their footsteps.

The “NIKI” (VICTORY) Award is inspired by the statue Niki of Samothrace from the prow of a ship and represents the goddess as she descends from the skies to the triumphant fleet. Her right arm was originally raised, cupped round her mouth to deliver the shout of “Victory!” The most likely battle commemorated by this monument is, perhaps, the Battle of Kos, in 255 BC, which Antigonus II Gonatas of Macedonia won over the fleet of Ptolemy II of Egypt. Victory by Greeks who have overcome difficult challenges continues to move and inspire the world.

Students' Views

"Greece was invented for summer holidays. I have not seen all of it, but the best places are on the islands, especially the Ciclades group of islands. Because Athens is a big modern metropolis, nice and expensive place to live, you can find people with different cultures from all over the world."

Lazar Adjigogov, MSIN 2005 (FYROM)
