Education Day: UK University Alumni Innovation Showcase
With more than 11,000 Greek students studying in UK universities, and about the same number studying UK programmes in Greece, Innovation Week will kick off with a free event at Στέγη Ιδρύματος Ωνάση / Οnassis Cultural Centre Athens in partnership with the Onassis Scholars' Association. We will have the opportunity to hear the stories of successful innovative Greek Alumni from UK universities who have achieved impact in their respective field. Come and hear inspiring stories from 9 Greek innovators and vote for your favourite one.
What could a Greek geneticist, conductor, banker and humanitarian possibly have in common? The answer? Innovation in their chosen fields, and a UK university education at the foundation of their professional development.
The presenters are:
· Antigone Dimas - The Geneticist · Fred Featham - The Campaigner · Hariton Korizis - The Banker · Marilita Moschos - The Ophthalmologist · Aggeliki Pappa - The Educator · Joanna Theodorou - The Social Enterpreneur · Myrto Tsima - The Lawyer · Nikolaos Tsokanos - The Farmer · Zoe Zeniodi - The Conductor
The event will be moderated by Dr Theodore Anagnostopoulos, President of the Onassis Scholars’ Association.
