I served as president of the local IEEE chapter at UoWM 2021-2022. The IEEE SB at that time had 7 staff members and very few active activities. In less than a year we managed to quintuple the active members (about 40 people potential), gained a nationwide outreach, and by 2022 we were considered the 4th most dynamic chapter in Greece. We developed partnerships with local businesses and connected to the know-how transfer network of Protergia, the largest private energy supplier in Greece, while in 2021 we participated in the IEEE Entrepreneurship Week R8 program and collaboration with 6 Greek IEEE SBs plus we created the IEEE Innovation For Health which won 1st place among 32 Pan-European similar activities and brought 1000€ to the IEEE Greece Section's treasury. In addition, we established, in collaboration with 6 Ph.D. candidates, 3 undergraduates, and with Advisor Dr. Christoforidis (President ECE Dep), the first official sub-chapter PES UoWM Chapter (Part of Power & Energy Society) in the region of Western Macedonia. The IEEE UoWM PES Chapter quickly proceeded in cooperation with Protergia of Mytilineos Group in pilot actions under the "Smart Cities" investment.
Innovation for Health is a 3-day event held as part of the IEEE entrepreneurship week 2021 bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond. Research and innovation will be the key to ensure that the transition to a post-corona society is sustainable, inclusive and resilient. This year’s format will provide an opportunity to connect, take stock of research and innovative achievements in the global response to the pandemic and build on the EU’s response: worldwide coordination of excellent science for global health, social and economic recovery.
We created a local research team and worked on a pilot project (Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading and Green Certificates Issuing Based on EACs Scheme using Blockchain Technology) with the largest private electricity provider, Protergia of the Mytileneos Group.
One of my first official jobs was at the Environmental Technology Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Bartsi. I worked with the execution of the WRF CHEM (Weather Research and Prediction Model - WRF combined with Chemistry) project as part of the ICARUS (Integrated Climate forcing and Air pollution Reduction in Urban Systems) project. In addition, I ran scripts and worked with the execution of CAMx v7 (Comprehensive Air Quality Model), as well as small java scripts where I simulated scenarios from bash scripts.
