IEEE UoWM Student Branch

Chairman

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.
