This is our first new year's episode and the first one in Greek! We keep our usual technology and around-technology format. My first guest is Dr Dimitris Kontziampasis, whom you first met in January 2020 at the episode "A Greek, young academic living and working abroad".

We now meet Dimitris, three years later, going through two academic positions, now in his third one as an Assistant Professor in Materials Engineering at the University of Dundee (Scotland, U.K.), which collaborates with the Central South University (Changsha, Hunan, China) where Dimitris was at the time of our conversation. We discussed some key aspects of his research in the science and technology for the development of artificial organs, transitioning from a PhD holder to an academic, also the current structures in and status of higher education internationally (in the U.K, Greece and China) and research, as well as the Great and Silent resignations. Finally, some personal questions at the end of our discussion. Happy listenings, and remember to subscribe, like, and comment on Spotify, Apple podcasts, Anchor FM and wherever you listen to the Global Greek Influence podcast. Happy New Year and happy new beginnings!
