He also served as General Secretary of Research and Technology (1988-89), and Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering (1982-84). He was and still is an active member of executive and scientific boards and committees including, among others, the NATO Science Committee, in which he is the Greek representative, the Scientific Council of "National Hellenic Research Foundation", and the Board of Directors of "Patras Science Park".

  • The Royal Society of Chemistry of the UK has begun publication of a new scientific journal having the title "Green Chemistry". This new journal is devoted to basic research in chemistry aiming at the development of clean technologies. One of the members of the Editorial Board is Dr. S. Boghosian, Lecturer at the University of Patras and a regular collaborating faculty member of FORTH/ICE-HT.

  • The 3rd issue of the 24th volume of "MRS Bulletin", which appeared recently, is dedicated to the subject of "Membranes and Membrane Processes". Guest-Editor for this special issue was Dr. V. N.
