Lecturer Unv.Of Oregon U.S.A
Dimitris has been working since 2016 at Clean Tech Innovation Hub, based in Patras Science Park S.A. C.T.E.H include a strong partnership between companies, universities and research institutions aiming towards the research on advanced materials and in particular for energy applications. More than 30 companies and 6 universities 8 institutions are in the pool of the HUB (National & international members). The HUB is under the ‘umbrella’ of Patras Science Park (PSP) a public incubator in charge for supporting with specific actions Innovation, Tech-transfer and Entrepreneurship. C.T.E.H is in close collaboration with PSP and support all the activities.
The Hub give the opportunity to its members to know each other, to perform research on projects of mutual interest and apply towards EU funding and to assist where possible, the industry’s production, with the aim to increase competitiveness, create new jobs. His team are involved with young scientists, senior researchers and professors, serial entrepreneurs. He is coaching teams from the business idea, to technology development, business model design and test to commercial success in the field!
Prior managing Clean Tech Energy Hub from 2003, after studying engineering, was Research Associate on High-Tech Materials Laboratory (LHTM) / Engineering Science Department / School of Engineering, Patras GR.
He became expert on Renewable Energy Systems Photovoltaics and Environment.
He is author in significant scientific journals as Advanced Science Letters Journal of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology ,Journal of Surfaces and Interfaces of Materials (JSIM), Journal of Spintronics and Magnetic Nanomaterials (JSM), Journal of spintronics and Magnetic Materials, Appl. Phys. Letters with more than 30 publications in the field of innovative materials for energy applications, new industrial materials, nanotechnology.
Also conducted classes at Laboratories of Physic 1 and 2 for Computer Engineering, school of Engineering, University of Patras. Experimental and Theoretical courses.
As Lecturer in sustainable infrastructure Development of the University of Oregon, USA. at 2006 he done various Lectures on Sustainable Infrastructure, Sustainability principles applied to the design of individual and community energy supply, communications and other systems infrastructure. Sustainable Energy Systems Design. Evaluation and design of alternative energy systems for individual and community applications. Renewable Energy Solutions -Various Projects. Photovoltaics - Wind generators - Environmental Needs and applications.
He worked close with the industry and he was Consultant on subjects: ''Photovoltaic innovation and Technology'' for Solar Cells Hellas S.A. and he still has a significant collaboration with the group. He had experience on proposals and preparation of various Research and Scientific programmes in National and International level as Project Manager as Researcher.
