First name: 

Dr. Pantelis Angelidis is an innovator entrepreneur.

His main interest lies in turning research results into sustainable businesses focusing on technologies for preventive health and active ageing.

Personal vision: 

Too many top quality research outcomes in Europe fail to become innovative products and services. We can not afford this any longer. It costs too much. Not only because investment in research should be further boosted, but also because jobs of excellence should be created in higher rates. SMEs and start-ups are the drivers of innovation and have to be supported to grow, to become sustainable and whenever possible world leaders. I put most of my efforts towards this goal.
