Judge at CrowdHackathon SmartCity 2 Citylab event (Patras)

I was invited as a scientific expert to be on the judges panel for the Patras Citylab (prep event) for the City Challenge Crowdhackathon #smartcity 2 event. A total of 9 ideas were presented by teams and solo applicants, and we selected the best 3 to move forward to the main event with all their expenses covered (Athens, 28 June - 1st July).

Congratulations to all the winners and good luck to every team that decides to move on to the main event!

Nominated "Achaea Person of the Year" (Science & Education)

The biggest newspaper in Western Greece covering national news and news from the prefecture of Achaea, organises yearly its "Persons of the Year" awards. I had the honour of being nominated for this award, under the "Science & Education" category, for the work I did on Swymm (a crowdsourcing app for the condition of swimming beaches in the region).
