The Gianna Angelopoulos Programme for Science Technology and Innovation (GAPSTI) is an internationally unique ecosystem of training, research and entrepreneurial activity which supports the production of high-impact disruptive technologies through a comprehensive programme of world-leading research.
It nurtures exceptionally talented early-career scientists, from postgraduate study and research to the successful commercialisation of their ideas, through a structured training and research programme enhanced by industrial collaboration and entrepreneurial activities.
An embedded Impact for Greece Programme aims to establish strong links with Greek academic institutions and industry, facilitating a two-way exchange of people and ideas with opportunities for postgraduate study and research targeted at early-career Greek researchers.
The Programme is based at the Maxwell Centre of the Department of Physics (Cavendish Laboratory), University of Cambridge, and officially started its activities in October 2019.
Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki is an ambassador-at-large of the Greek Republic. She studied law and has practiced law for a number of years.
It is a pleasure to introduce the Annual Report (2019–20) of the Gianna Angelopoulos Programme at the end of a year when we laid the foundations for this internationally unique ecosystem of training, research and entrepreneurial activity.
