Three days full of research, fruitful discussions, demos, presentations, inspirational exchanges, social activities and teambuilding. For another year, our Annual Conference (24-26/09, Porto Heli) succeeded in competing its purpose: we all shared the research outcomes of different subteams, discussed new ideas, spotted synergies and linkages across subjects, provided input in highly interdisciplinary fields and got all the necessary inspiration to continue our research endeavours.
Prof Ioannis Vasileiou, Director of ICCS and Dr Angelos Amditis, director of I-SENSE Group opened the Conference. “Just before we enter the 20th year of our existence, I-SENSE Research Group has already succeeded in completing more than 170 research projects and today counts more than 300 scientific publications, 150 people and 64 ongoing research projects in Horizon 2020. Despite all the difficulties posed by the pandemic, our team managed to function at its best and today we continue our hard work, feeling more motivated and well equipped with skills, direction and empowered vision” says Dr Angelos Amditis.
