Days of Pneumonology 2018

The Pneumonology Clinic of the University of Thessaly, in cooperation with the Respiratory and Ventricular Diseases Society, has been organizing its annual conference since 1999. We welcome you to the traditional three-day event, which will take place from 12 to 15 April 2018 in the Xenod "Larisa Imperial" in the city of Larissa.
Like last year, we have prepared three seminars at the premises of the Pulmonary Clinic in Larissa on the subjects of chest ultrasound, pulmonary fibrosis, and vascular diseases of the lung. On Thursday evening, in Larissa, a round table is organized on the effects of health pollution. Successful incident discussions will be continued by the Pulmonary Clinic of the University of Thessaly and by at least 6 clinics from all over the country. Special sessions are devoted to the education and professional prospects of new pneumonologists. We will discuss the expectations of the trainees for their education as well as the clinical evaluation, a topic of great interest. It will also be very informative to listen to the experience of our new colleagues, who are in a prolongation period, are ancillary, work in the private sector or in the pharmaceutical industry. Of particular interest are the lectures given by the professors of Lausanne and Boston Universities, respectively, on Friday evening at 8pm, on the subject of the relationship between medicine and tourism, and, at noon, on the subject of ethics that should govern the operation of the pharmaceutical industry.
With your participation and the sponsorship of companies, you contribute to the improvement of the clinical and research activities of the Pulmonology Clinic of the University of Thessaly in Central Greece. With the proceeds of the previous conference, we improved the endoscopic lab capability and strengthened the mobility of our partners for further education in European countries.

Design of Wind Turbine Steel Towers. Invitations and Open Topics to Investigate

The Department of Civil Engineering organizes the following lecture: "Design of Steel Wind Turbine Towers. Invitations and Open Issues to Investigate".

(at 13:30, Hall A, Department of Civil Engineering, Pedion Areos, Volos)
Professor Charalampos BANIOTOPOULOS, PhD, Prof hc Chair of Sustainable Energy Systems School of Engineering - University of Birmingham - UK

As the technological advances in wind power are now rising, wind has become the first source of sustainable energy production in the European Union, the US and Canada, and the second one in China.
Despite this optimistic fact, the percentage of wind energy of the world's total energy this year was less than 5%, which is obviously far from eliminating the greenhouse effect. Despite the fact that more than 350,000 wind power systems are operating around the world today, wind energy, which is a typical example of an interdisciplinary research field, requires further investment and innovative technology solutions to the open design and production problems of wind energy systems. In this context, during the lecture some important aspects of the design of steel wind turbine towers will be presented from a Civil Engineer’s point of view as well as the industrial production process, and open research topics that are challenging for researchers will be discussed, focusing on the research efforts on wind energy systems.   The results of the H2020: HISTWIN I, II and _Plus, SHOWTIME, WINERCOST and HYPERTOWER projects, which have recently been completed and have as their subject-matter innovations in the design of wind turbine towers, will also be presented.


Art and Science: Two Universes Meet

The round table "Art & Science: Two Universes Meet" will take place on Thursday, April 26, 2018, at 20:00 at the Amphitheater, which is located at Air Force 1 in Technopolis in the Municipality of Athens and is organized by the Department of Early Childhood Education of the University of Thessaly and the Onassis Scholars’ Association.
In recent years, the Arts and Sciences Conjunction has been promoted in education aiming to involve children in these subjects through creativity, brainstorming and bridging the gap between objects. This coupling is expressed through the term STEAM, which emerged from the addition of Arts in the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). This round table will present research, workshops and works of art and technology and will discuss the benefits of the new possibilities offered by STEAM practices.
