The National Centre for Scientific Research “DEMOKRITOS”, the largest, interdisciplinary Research Centre of Greece organizes the “Hellenic Forum for Science, Technology & Innovation”, for the fifth consecutive year, July 5-7 2017. The Forum is under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece.
During the three-day event Demokritos becomes the meeting place for scientists around the globe and the center of a dynamic network of partnerships and collaborations with the Industry. This year a selected group of distinguished scientists have been invited and will either give plenary lectures or will participate in focused workshops. They come from the fields of Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials, Environment, Energy, Biosciences and ICT. Emphasis is placed on topics of interdisciplinary research and converging technologies. Panel discussions will also be organized addressing issues of funding opportunities in Research and Innovation as well as topics in Science Communication.
For this year’s Forum three very special sessions are planed:
- The kick-off meeting of the Industrial Fellowship Program, with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, a celebratory event where the newly selected Fellows and their Mentors from the participating Enterprises are invited (July 5)
- The final phase of the MITEF Greece Startup Competition 2017, organized by the MIT Enterprise Forum Greece (July 6)
- A matchmaking event organized in collaboration with the PRAXI network that will provide networking opportunities for scientists from the academia and the industry, exploring joint ventures in Research and Innovation (July 7)
