What we do

The Post-COVID World “New Normal”

Humanity is entering unprecedented technological and socio-cultural changes that will lead to the advent of a new paradigm with major structural changes, shifting even further from digital to hybrid virtual transformation.

We aspire to pave the brave new world by facilitating and nurturing the new business and especially those in Research with deep tech innovation disruptions and where applicable, digital twin technologies in various verticals while we will enable our members to take advantage of AI-solutions.

By establishing the Greek Scientists Society we wish to develop the necessary tools and provide the necessary means for the Greek and Cypriot Scientists to successfully implement their Research and then market their results.

Although we are field agnostic and we invite Scientists from all disciplines, we focus at first on the Biomed sector with the establishment of the Hellenic Biomed Network  and on the IT sector with the Hellenic Infotech Network
