In 2017, the National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos” proudly introduced to the Greek Research Community the SNF Industrial Fellowship Program, made possible through a generous grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). This pioneer Program supports talented young researchers with a strong interest for applied and industrial research.
The Fellowships have a duration of either three or four years and can be awarded to PhD Candidates, Postdoctoral Associates and Adjunct Researchers. All the Fellows are selected after national open calls, followed by peer review of their proposals by a network of Experts from Universities and Research Centers all over Greece. The evaluation criteria are focused upon on the excellence of the academic profiles of the candidates, the scientific merit of their proposals and the degree of commitment and involvement of the participating Companies in the proposed research.
The Board of Directors of “Demokritos” congratulates each and every one of the seventy four Fellows for their success and for becoming part of a pivotal Program that is strengthening the bonds between the Centre and the participating Enterprises. We also congratulate the sixty one participating Companies and sincerely thank them for their contribution to the Fellowship fund and for trusting the Centre as a partner for this andfuture endeavors. We finally congratulate the Researchers of the Centre who became mentors of this innovative Program.
We express our gratitude to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) for believing that Demokritos can produce high-impact industrial research in collaboration with some of the most dynamic Greek companies and for making this entire Program possible.
