Presentation by Professor Nektarios Tavernarakis, Chairman of FORTH, Vice President of the European Research Council (ERC) and Member of the Governing Board of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), to the Special Permanent Committee on Research and Technology of the Hellenic Parliament.
Τhe Institute of Petroleum Research (IPR) of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH), founded in 2019 in Chania, is hereinafter renamed to Institute of Geoenergy (IG/FORTH) according to article 76 of Law 4864 /2021, published on 2-12-2021.
How does nature utilize the common repertoire of folds in proteins to differentiate their specificity, and ultimately their function? This long-standing and fundamental question was addressed in a study conducted at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Foundation for Research & Technology-Hellas (FORTH-IMBB).
The Objective of the project was to support Early Stage Researchers and to educate and train young scientists in the cutting edge technologies, in which the Institutes of FORTH excel both on the national and the international level, thus, contributing towards reversing of brain drain or, even better, at promoting brain circulation.
FORTH’s 9th Institute, the Biomedical Research Institute (BRI) based in Ioannina, was re-established, following an amendment by the Ministry of Development and Investments and the adoption of a relevant provision of law, on November 30, 2021.
Participation of FORTH/ICE-HT at the 7th Meeting of China-CEEC Higher Education Institutions Consortium
The 7th meeting of China-CEEC Higher Education Institutions Consortium entitled «Promoting the Sustainable Development of Education Cooperation between China and Central & Eastern European Countries» took place on December 2, 2021.
FORTH/ICE-HT (www.iceht.forth.gr) has created the “Stratis V. Sotirchos Lectureship” to honor the memory of one of its most distinguished Researchers, Professor Stratis V. Sotirchos. This Award is supported by the “Stratis V. Sotirchos Trust Fund”, which has been created from donations by friends and colleagues.
The IMBB Director, Professor John Vontas, selected as a Highly Cited Researcher by WoS, for the year 2021
The director of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas, has been named as one of the most cited researchers worldwide, according to this year’s “Highly Cited Researchers” list from Clarivate, based on the widely recognised Web of Science database.
IMBB researchers reveal that DNA damage in tissue-infiltrating macrophages triggers an exosome-based metabolic reprogramming leading to chronic inflammation.
Research carried out at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH, provides evidence that persistent DNA damage triggers an exosome-based, metabolic reprogramming that leads to chronic inflammation and tissue pathology in DNA repair-deficient progeroid syndromes and likely also during aging.
