Open Science, Our Future // e-Health past

Joined powers! The H2B HUB, in collaboration with FORTH, have envisioned and presenting a new series of lectures aimed at illuminating the path to the popularization of science.

5 axes, 5 FORTH researchers, 5 lectures focusing on OUR future.    “FUTURE. From today’s knowledge to tomorrow’s science!”

One talk every month. An opportunity to get closer to research knowledge through scientific talks accessible to anyone interested, through interactive lectures so we can assimilate what we hear.

Open Science, Our Future // e-Health

Vangelis Sakkalis, Chief Biomedical Technology Researcher, FORTH

The talk will take a look back at the evolution of medical technology from the past to today’s and tomorrow’s e-health. Modern topics in biomedical research will be discussed, in particular Precision Medicine / Personalized Medicine, and how the use of Computer Brain Interaction Technologies can lead to improved lifespan for people with disabilities.

The series “Open Science, Our Future” is addressed to ALL.

In this endeavor, we have a strong ally in FORTH, one of the largest and most well-organized research centers in the country, with international recognition and highly skilled staff.


Curator of the OPEN SCIENCE / OUR FUTURE Lecture Series: Irene Makedona – Pangopoulou
