Distinguished Affiliated Scholar (DAS) Program

The Kollias lab has established a Distinguished Affiliated Scholar Program that aims to foster interactions beyond conventional boundaries. The Program aims on establishing synergies with distinguished international scholars from the Humanities, Arts, Sciences and Technologies, in order to spark innovative and "out of the box" thinking. The Program was initiated and is coordinated by Myrta Perraki, Arts and Science curator.
