Born in Greece in 1894, Euripidi Foundoukidis was educated at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Internationales and the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Sociales in Paris. He served as a delegate of the Greek government to the 1920 Congress of the Postal Union. For several years he worked as a civil servant and as editor at the Greek journal Phos. He also worked as cultural advisor to the Greek Embassy in Paris.
Foundoukidis joined the International Institute of Intellectual Cooperation (IIIC) as an Attaché at the Section of Artistic Relations in January 1929, before becoming Secretary of the International Office of Museums (IOM) in April 1929. In 1931 he was promoted to Secretary-General of the IOM, a contract which was renewed in 1936 and lasted until September 1941, before the IOM became dormant during the war and Foundoukidis finally left the IIIC in 1946.
After he left the IIIC, Foundoukidis remained honorary director of the Hellenic society at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris. He was a Chevallier of the Legion of Honour. Foundoukidis died on 11 September 1968.
