6th IEEE Hellenic SYP Congress

The HSYP (Hellenic Students and Young Professionals) Congress is a congress that takes place every two years in GreeceCyprusMalta, or Israel and refers to students, young graduate engineers, and members of the IEEE.

It includes talks and discussions and aims at the exchange of ideas and experiences between the participants, the conclusion of collaborations, the appropriate training, and the supply of the members of the student branches for the organization of their local actions but also the information of the new engineers for the needs of the labor market. The congress will be organized for the sixth time online in November 2021, by the IEEE Greece Section.

The 6th HSYP will be held Virtually, on 20th and 21st November 2021!

The Organizing Committee has already started working –very cheerfully- in order to ensure an unforgettable experience for the participants.

Innovation for Health Competition is an event in which people with diverse perspectives such as clinicians, engineers, designers, software developers, business people, and patients come together in an intense, fun-filled, three-day weekend to develop and build solutions that could address challenges facing healthcare today. Participants will form teams, collaborate within a limited time frame, and focus on a specific problem or idea in healthcare to come up with innovative ideas and solutions. The organizing committee of the three-day event, “Innovation for Health”, intends to promote the innovative ideas of young people in the field of biomedical Technology. Specifically, the participants will be divided into groups and will be undertaken by a clinical need which they will be able to solve from the first day of the conference, Friday 12/11 at 9:00 am. until Sunday 14/11 at 12:00 p.m. Meanwhile, they will work with teachers, counselors, and mentors to find an innovative solution and create a business plan around it. The groups in general and each member individually will receive guidance and advice throughout the conference. At the end of the competition, the teams will present their solutions in 15 minutes, in English, to the competent committee. The teams will be evaluated based on the evaluation criteria that the judges have set and also the topics of the competitions are up to them. Not only the evaluation criteria but also the topics will be released the first day of the competition Friday 12/11. The teams that will be announced 1st and 2nd in the competition will win a cash prize to support their creative idea. The two winning teams (first and second) will win a cash prize in order to support them and their creative idea. At the same time, the two best teams will be chosen with their presentations recorded and will be sent to regional level to global evaluators, industry experts and IEEE Region 8 volunteers. Among all these team presentations, many amazing teams will be chosen by IEEE Region 8 for the next part of the competition, the guidance phase, where the teams will be guided to the search for funds and successful purchase. The guidance phase will be held at the beginning of the new year and the finals will be carried out in a high-level international IEEE event, such as the IEEE Region 8 Student and Young Professionals congress or the Rising Stars congress and possibly apart from IEEE the Web Summit or Wolves Summit. Finally, we intend to emphasize the most important chance that IEEE is giving to start-ups: to be a global network of technology experts now complemented by the perception of available business experts.

The IEEE Greece Section organized and hosted a session within the IEEE R8 Virtual Student and Young Professional Congress on September 16th at 16:00 CEST. The lecture was on the topic of ‘Integrated Lab-on-Chip biomedical diagnostic chips: the SARS-CoV-2 example and beyond’ and given by Dr Despina Moschou.

Abstract: Lab-on-Chip technology aspires to shrink biomedical laboratories in few cm microchips, in a technological revolution step analogous to the introduction of computer technology in the 20th century. In this presentation Dr Moschou will provide an overview of this technology and its impact on healthcare, discussing its potential role in managing the COVID-19 outbreak and clinical case beyond that. She will also focus on manufacturing techniques for integrated Lab-on-Chip biomedical diagnostic chips and in particular the Lab-on-PCB technology that has been the forefront of her work for the past 8 years, providing examples of collaborative projects under way in various countries and settings.

Presenter: Dr. Despina Moschou (MEng: ECE NTUA, PhD: NCSR Demokritos, IEEE: Senior Member) is currently a Royal Academy of Engineering Industrial Fellow and Assistant Professor in BioMicroElectroMechanical Systems (BioMEMs), within the Centre for Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices (C3Bio), Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath . Since 2010, her main research focus has been to apply her microfabrication and microelectronic device expertise in the development of disposable Lab-On-a-Chip systems for bioanalytical applications (molecular and immunoassay-based Point-of-Care diagnostic devices). For the past 8 years she has been pioneering globally the Lab-on-Printed Circuit Board approach, in an effort to realize disposable, mass-manufacturable Lab-on-Chip microsystems, engaging with stakeholders across all related disciplines (clinical scientists, microbiologists, chemists, manufacturers, engineers, diagnostic industries).

The IEEE R8 Virtual Student and Young Professional Congress took place online, 14 – 26 September, 18:00 – 21:00. It featured a series of plenary sessions, workshops, competitions, social activities, and many more – through separate Student, Young Professional and Women in Engineering tracks. Each day was hosted by a different Section from Region 8, with local content presented online across our region!



Soft Skills Workshop

About this event

The IEEE Greece Section, in collaboration with the IEEE Young Professionals Greece, the Women in Engineering Greece, and the IEEE National Technical University of Athens Student Branch organized an online Soft Skills Workshop on Thursday 30/4/20 at 18:30.

Soft skills vs Hard skills
What are the soft skills that employers seek today? Do you know what VUCA is? Why are these skills important especially in the after COVID19 era? Are we born with them or we can learn them? How can you maximize your chances to succeed in your career? In this 90’ presentation you will find out which are the basic “soft skills” and then we will focus on 4 of them that can differentiate you in the work environment: Understanding and managing change, resilience, teamwork, leadership. You will understand their meaning and content and you will learn about the value that each of them has for you as an individual but also within an organization. We will discuss cases where one can demonstrate these skills and how you can practice them along your career journey.
