An Event Not to Be Missed!

We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd Hellenic Forum for Science, Technology and Innovation held on June 30-July 4, 2014 at the NCSR “Demokritos” Congress Center in Athens, Greece.

The 2nd Hellenic Forum aims at strengthening interactions and exploring new paths for close collaboration between research centers and industries, in order to enhance the competitiveness and productivity of the country. The purpose of this interaction is to define the steps to be taken in order to enhance Greek-based innovation in an international business environment.

Within this framework, the 2nd Hellenic Forum aspires to build bridges between the research community in Greece and distinguished scientists of Diaspora as well as professionals in the industrial sector, for developing scientific and technology transfer collaborations for innovation.

We are drafting a very interesting program which covers different scientific areas presenting some of the latest developments in Nuclear and Particle Physics, Biosciences and Pharmaceuticals, Energy & Sustainable Technologies, Safety and Security and ICT, and displays the ongoing Innovation and Entrepreneurship initiatives.

The invited speakers and the participants will also have the opportunity to visit our newly inaugurated Innovation Exhibition hosted at the NCSR “Demokritos”, which presents current state-of-the-art Greek innovation technologies.

We hope to see you at the 2nd Hellenic Forum for Science, Innovation and Technology in summer 2014!

Nuclei and Elementary Particles for Scientific Discoveries and Innovation
close

The progress in Particle, Astroparticle and Nuclear Physics research during the recent years is unprecedented. A plethora of new experimental techniques for the study of the microcosm and the Universe have been developed and/or perfected. Long awaited experimental results have emerged from the data analysis, such as the Higgs boson and High Energy cosmic neutrinos. Sophisticated theoretical models have been devised to explain the workings of nature and the evolution of the Universe. Radioactive beams open new avenues in nuclear physics research cancelling a host of well-established theories!

At the same time the most advanced technologies have been utilized and/or developed to cope with the ever increasing demands of data taking and analysis inevitably pushing forward the frontier of technology innovation and practical applications to other sciences and industry.

The workshop aims to bring together scientists with expertise in the areas of Nuclear and Particle Physics to discuss the current progress on scientific and technological innovations in these fields.

Invited speakers include:

  • Nicolas Alamanos, CEA-Saclay, France
  • Ignatios Antoniadis, CERN, Switzerland/li>
  • Ioannis Giomataris, CEA-Saclay, France
  • Stavros Katsanevas, Université Paris VII, France

Seminar-Course on: The technological demands of the experiments in Particle, Astro-particle and Nuclear Physics result in advanced innovations, which often lead to important inventions and patents. CERN has a wide experience on the related international patenting and licensing.

The course includes a series of seminars on patenting and licensing by Dr. Jean-Marie LeGoff,former Head of the office of Technology Transfer of CERN, chairman of HEPTech, the Technology Transfer Network of organisations active in particle, astro-particle and nuclear physics and expert mandated by WIPO on intellectual property matters. The course will have the following structure:

  • Setting the scene: IP policy and explaining its use to the various stakeholders
  • IP protection why, for what purpose?
  • Successful licensing: to illustrate what happens between academia and industry in case of exploitation of research results.

This course is addressed to the Industrial as well as to the Academic/Research sector. It is organized by CERN and the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics of Demokritos.

Drug Delivery systems & biomaterials

Biomaterials are relevant to areas such as cancer diagnosis and therapy, implantable devices, drug delivery systems, gene vectors, bionanotechnology, implants and tissue engineering.

New approaches for cancer diagnosis and therapy based on advanced targeted Drug Delivery systems & biomaterials
close

Biomaterials are relevant to areas such as cancer diagnosis and therapy, implantable devices, drug delivery systems, gene vectors, bionanotechnology, implants and tissue engineering. Drug delivery systems are methods used to get drugs into the body avoiding the traditional drugs' side effects improving in that way the drug circulation time, efficacy and specificity. Common types of drug delivery systems include inorganic and organic polymers and can deliver different therapeutic entities like genes, drugs, proteins, cells and etc.

Opening new frontiers for advanced research and innovative business: the Oil & Gas industry in Greece
close

The Oil & Gas industry is generally divided into two major sectors: upstream and downstream. Upstream, also known as the exploration and production (E&P) sector, includes all the exploration activities, i.e., searching for hydrocarbons, drilling of exploratory wells and bringing the hydrocarbons (crude oil and gas) to the surface. Downstream, on the other hand, is the refining of the crude oil, processing of the gas, marketing and distribution of the final products to the market.

The upstream part of the industry is not well known to the Greek research community as there were very limited exploration activities in Greece. As we are finally entering the era of hydrocarbons exploration, it is important to connect the two communities: explorationists and researchers.

This thematic area will:

  • Introduce the upstream industry to the audience: it will present the upstream business model, describe the main exploration techniques and the technical challenges that the industry faces today.
  • Present the current status of the upstream industry in Greece and the new opportunities for research and business innovators.
  • Present the relevant research activities in Demokritos.

Invited speakers include:

  • Dr. Aristofanis Stefatos, Technology Director of Atlantic Petroleum Norge, Norway
  • Dr Eythymios Tartaras, Data Processing & Modeling Manager, Schlumberger’ Integrated EM Center of Excellence, Milan, italy
