NetVolution: Α new ERC starting grant was awarded to FORTH-ICS
Sep 03, 2013A new distinction for FORTH, Greece's major Research Centre, came through the recent approval by the ERC (European Research Council) of one more proposal that was submitted by Dr. Xenofontas Dimitropoulos of FORTH's Institute of Computer Science (ICS). This ERC grant will fund Dimitropoulos' "NetVolution" project, to perform research on evolving the routing system of the Internet. ERC starting grants are considered highly honorary: they are given for cutting edge research and they are very competitive -- in 2013, out of 3,329 proposals that were submitted Europe-wide and across all disciplines, only 287 were accepted, i.e. just nine percent (9%); only two (2) of these 287 approved grants are given to researchers in Greek institutions, and "NetVolution" is one of the two. Dr. Dimitropoulos is repatriating to Greece, coming to FORTH and the University of Crete, where he has been elected Assistant Professor, leaving his position with ETH Zurich.
Flexible graphene oxide films for new organic solar cells
Jun 07, 2013The Ultrafast Laser Micro- and Nano- processing team led by Dr. Emmanuel Stratakis, Principal Application Scientist of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL/FORTH) and the Nanomaterials & Organic Electronics (NANO) Group, led by Prof. Emmanuel Kymakis, Associate Professor of the Technical Educational Institute (T.E.I) of Crete, have demonstrated a groundbreaking methodology for controlled in-situ reduction of spin-casted graphene oxide (GO) nanometric films on flexible substrates and the subsequent realization of highly conductive and transparent electrodes for flexible organic photovoltaics (OPV).
