    Beyond catalysis and into space exploration: the new chemical engineering

    Beyond catalysis and into space exploration: the new chemical engineering

    In this episode, Professor Konstantinos Giapis (Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, CalTech) discusses chemical engineering contributions to renewable energy, utilising CO2 to produce oxygen, cosmology by enriching astrophysics, through surfaces' dynamics studies:

    · plasma processing and

    · electrospinning hybrid nanomaterials.

    Global Greek Influence podcast releases episodes this summer every two Sundays. From September, we will resume the weekly episodes. But next Sunday only will be an exception as a bonus episode with Professor Giapis awaits you.

    Building towards the future medical nanobiotechnology and 3D printing

    In this episode, Dr Maria Kitsara, Lead Research Manager on biomedical applications at BioG3D – New 3D printing technologies, and I discuss:




    utilising nanotechnology, micro-fabrication and microfluidics to advance tissue engineering and regenerative medicine for faster and more economical drug development through in-vitro diagnostics as well as for reducing the risk of drug withdrawal after reaching the market,




    the benefits of diverse working environments and background experts in developing the necessary soft skills to acquire a holistic approach to scientific research and innovation,




    communication and managerial skills are equally important, along with the scientific background in research and innovation.



    Maria, a materials engineer, has a PhD in miniaturised biosensors and had received three personal research grants on biosensors, microfluidics, and biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. She has worked in Dublin City University in Ireland, in the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Spain, and at the École Normale Supérieure and Sorbonne University in France.

    Challenges to lead the future environment

    Challenges to lead the future environment

    Humanity's most significant challenges in the next 30 years will be on the environment, water- food, energy, and health. How could technology, aka engineering and science research and innovation, support them? Should engineers and scientists lead research and innovation beyond geopolitics and businesses? How so?
