The High School Teachers European Society (HiSTES) was established in Hamburg in 2005. The society initially operated within Western Europe. In 2015, it expanded its operations to CIS and Eastern Europe. The current operational centre for new areas is based in the Open European Academy of Economics and Politics in Prague.
The society was originally established to integrate high school teachers into a dynamic international community to exchange experience in education. Although there are similar communities in different fields, the forms of their activity often does not meet the expectations of participants.
To address these problems, the founders of HiSTES offered teachers the opportunity to participate in the creation of an environment for direct communication by sharing the best ideas, top achievements and latest educational technologies.
Since 2005, HiSTES has organised international conferences and workshops on various themes in close collaboration with its colleagues from Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and other European countries.
To increase the performance of the society, we decided to include universities and other high school institutions into HiSTES because they constantly encourage innovation in teachers’ educational methods and professional skills. Additionally, such an update of the structure will eventually lead to the renewal of its participants and will help to establish a mutually beneficial dialogue between educational institutions and teachers.
Cooperation with HiSTES provides diverse possibilities:
Participation in worldwide seminars and conferences;
The opportunity to participate in joint educational programs with foreign higher education facilities and other educational organisations within or outside the EU;
Forward-thinking educational methods and scientific experience exchange;
Increase of the attractiveness for foreign students exchange;

The opportunity to attract foreign experts and scientists;

HiSTES also has experience participating in education-oriented grant projects with the involvement of non-EU countries and applies this experience to provide assistance to our partners.
Benefits from cooperation get not only universities and partners in general, but also a teaching staff.
