    The arrival of next-generation energy

    The arrival of next-generation energy

    Dr Vasilis Gregoriou (CEO of Advent Technologies in the US, PhD in Physical Chemistry from Duke University in the US, Director and Chairman of the Board at the National Hellenic Research Foundation (NHRF)) discusses

    - in what Advent Technologies owes its technological #leadership worldwide,

    - the factors that make the “readiest” #hydrogen and #renewablefuels market between Europe, the US and Japan,

    - why the Green HiPo (Important Projects of Common European Interest, IPCEI) Project in Greece is important as a paradigm for the global economy,

    - Greece becoming a renewable energy hub at the EastMed,

    - the future of polymer-based hybrid nanostructures,

    - filling the gaps between academia's knowledge transfer hubs and the industry to accelerate innovation delivered to society,

    and more.

    Decision making in crisis times

    Decision making in crisis times

    Making decisions at a personal, professional also collective level, especially in times of crisis, is a process we tend to avoid, or we foresee the uncertainties related to them. In this special episode, Professor Koundouri and Professor Psychogios answer to:


    how can we make better and faster decisions,
    how can we make the best decisions under the uncertainty of current rapid global changes,
    the keys to and how we could develop dynamic relationships under crisis and global changes.

    For all manking: lunar and deep space exploration- the chemical engineering perspective

    For all manking: lunar and deep space exploration- the chemical engineering perspective

    With Dr Vassilis Inglezakis (PhD, Chemical Engineer, Reader in Chemical Engineering, and Director of Research at the University of Strathclyde, the U.K.), we discuss the case of Lunar and Martian camps for the planets also deep space exploration:


    the available hydrogen production systems (fuel cells' water electrolysis),
    carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen capture technologies for energy, fuels and fertiliser production,
    the best purposing of zeolites with hydroponics on Mars, based on our chemical engineering knowledge of zeolites as materials, the design and use as catalysts (in petroleum engineering, responsible for 40% of crude oil products in the world), adsorbers for purification and separation of products, ion exchange materials in detergents and water purification.

    The chemical engineering perspective is about building technologies, systems and their materials purposed for synthesis- resynthesis, securing resources and serving a circular supply chain in the production cycle (its risk analysis and management), the best operation of such systems and the specific requirements of the building materials of these systems under the space and Lunar-Mars conditions, the sustainability of the resources for those technologies purposes and competing purposing and repurposing.

    Vassilis has also been my guest in the 2020 episode "Leadership in Technology: Science or Politics?" and the special episode in 2021, "The power of Negotiations".

    Systems thinking of decision making for sustainable development

    Systems thinking of decision making for sustainable development

    Professor Phoebe Koundouri (Athens University of Economics and Business- Greece; Department of Technology, Management and Economics, Technical University of Denmark (DTU)) speaks to the Global Greek Influence podcast on "Systems thinking of decision making for sustainable development". We discuss:

    · keys to sustainably financing climate change mitigation & adaptation across the economy and society,

    · how solving the climate crisis can deliver and secure peace,

    · transforming capitalism for “Greater Profits, Sustainability and Security”,

    · combining the Green Recovery with the European Green Deal (EGD) to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),

    · Aristotelianism helping us meet current and future challenges,

    · monetising the non-marketable capital to make correct investment decisions and more.

    Phoebe is a distinguished environmental economics professor, a global leader in sustainable development, and an innovator, listed in the 1% of most-cited women economists in the world & the official Stanford University list of the Top 2 % of world scientists. Also, she is a member of the Nominating Committee for the Prize in Economics Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, The Royal Swedish Academy of Science.

    A special announcement

    The Global Greek Influence podcast will continue to bring exclusive guests' master class discussions as free content every two weeks.

    Starting this Sunday, subscribers will be able to listen to exclusive content by contributing to the podcast, as currently, platforms in Europe do not give you the option of donations.

    So, you can keep listening for free to the new guest interviews every two Sundays and the subscription specially created episodes in between.

    I hope you enjoy the Global Greek Influence podcast content, and I am grateful for your support over the past (almost) three years.
