Our history

EEAE story goes back to 1954, when for the first time was founded in Greece an organization competent to promote peaceful nuclear energy and technology applications, under the name "Greek Atomic Energy Commission”.

Next, it was separated from the National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos” and was re-established in 1987 by introducing its contemporary operation as a regulatory authority by virtue of Law no. 4310/2014. Some of the milestones of EEAE course and evolution from 1954 till nowadays are listed below:
