The Inaugural Teleconference of ESETEK was organised with great success on Wednesday 17 June  2020 between 17: 00-18: 30.

The purpose of the teleconference was to inform the academic, research and business community in Greece about the goals and the work of ESETEK to date. The creation of an effective communication channel is crucial, so that the interventions of ESETEK respond to the needs and issues of the academic, research and business community, as well as the citizens of our country in the field of Research, Technology and Innovation.

The topics of the Teleconference which presented by the President of ESETEK Prof. Emm. Dermitzakis as well as the members of ESETEK were:

1. The Role of ESETEK – Brief presentation of the members of the National Council for Research, Technology and Innovation (ESETEK)

2. The Role and composition of the Sectoral Scientific Councils (TES)

3. The Initiatives and priorities of ESETEK for dealing with the coronavirus crisis.

4. Questions-Discussion

The event was greeted by Deputy Minister of Development and Investment Mr. Christos Dimas and the Secretary General of Research and Technology Professor Ath. Kyriazis.

One of the issues raised by the research and academic community was the creation of a distinct TES for Environment and Energy, with the result that ESETEK suggested the creation of another TES entitled: Environment, Energy and Sustainable Mobility.
