Affiliated Fellow

The Scientific Council of FORTH/ICE-HT and the Board of Directors of FORTH during their last session on October the 8th, 2005 approved solid the election of Mr. Dionysios Vlachos -Professor at the University of Delaware- as Affiliated Fellow of FORTH/ICE-HT.


Global 100 Eco-Tech Awards

Dr. Theophilos Ioannides, a FORTH/ICE-HT principal researcher, won a prize on Global 100 Eco-Tech Awards for the technology titled: Transparent Thermal Insulation.

The Global 100 Eco-Tech Awards are sponsored by the Japan Association for the 2005 World Exposition, with co-sponsor the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Inc.

Overall, 100 technologies were selected by the Global 100 Eco-Tech Awards Screening Committee among 236 technologies submitted by official participants (foreign countries and international organizations), Japanese local governments and screening committee members. The Award ceremony took place on September 1, 2005, in Nagoya, Japan.


A Practical Course on Advanced Techniques in Molecular Biotechnology

FORTH/ICE-HT is hosting a 5-day laboratory-intensive summer school titled "A Practical Course on Advanced Techniques in Molecular Biotechnology" (June 13th-18th 2005). The summer school is a combination of lectures and hands-on laboratory exercises on a variety of techniques for DNA, RNA and protein manipulation, identification and analysis. The techniques will be taught in the context of the current needs for investigation and analysis of biological systems in the areas of nanobiotechnology and systems biology. The summer school is designed for group leaders, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and technical personnel from academic institutions and industries. Each participant will learn and practice a number of classical and state-of-the-art techniques that are used widely in molecular biology and biotechnology laboratories. The lectures will provide a clear explanation of the underlying principles in a systematic manner and describe, critically, the technical challenges and trends at the forefront of biological research and diagnostics.


Stratis V. Sotirchos Memorial Lectureship

FORTH/ICE-HT ( has created the “Stratis V. Sotirchos Lectureship” to honor the memory of one of its most distinguished Researchers, Professor Stratis V. Sotirchos, who lost his life in a tragic traffic accident in Brussels, on June 13, 2004.

The SVS Lectureship will be awarded every second year to an engineer-scientist, who has produced original and fundamentally important results in some R&D field within the broader context of chemical engineering.
