Who we are

The CORE is Nikos and Stefanos 

Working together since 2012, we have developed a strong understanding of the innovation value chain. Our CORE network of partners comprise high profile researchers, technology providers, industry, business consultants, and investors, and end-users from the public and private sector.

He currently holds the position of European Proposals Manager in Brunel University London, supporting 20 professors in their quest for funding research. He has always been a thinker, curious and aware of the current technological trends, keen in identifying the technologies missing and concerned of how innovation can be applied to modern society bringing together peoples’ needs and the market sector.
