Dr Christos Tsamis received his Physics diploma from the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens in 1989 and his PhD degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 1996. Since 1996 he joined the Institute of Microelectronics (now Inst. of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology) at the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” where he is currently “Director of Research”. He is leading the group on “Energy Harvesting and Autonomous Sensors”. His research interests focus on Micro- and Nanofabrication technologies for Microsystems for devices and sensors, Nanostructured materials and devices for Energy harvesting, Chemical Sensors, flexible electronics and Thermal processes for micro- and nanodevices. He is/was Scientific Responsible and/or Coordinator for several National and EU projects in the above topics, attracting a total funding of 1.9 MEuros, and has participated in several others as a key researcher. He acts as reviewer for international journals and Conferences. He was General Conference Chairman for EUROSENSORS XXV that took take place in Athens (4-7 September 2011), as well as co-Chairman or Member of the Organizing Committee for International and National Conferences.  He acts as a evaluator for the EU (H2020), the General Secretariat for Research and Technology, the Serbian Ministry of Science and Technological Development, the Polish National Science Centre. He has supervised seven PhDs and several MSc theses. He is the author or co-author of over 200 publications in peer-reviewed International Journals, Conference Proceedings, and contributions in International Conferences.  He has edited 3 Conference Proceedings Volumes. During 2006-2013 he was Head of Education at NCSR “Demokritos” and during 2012-2013 he was also heading the Public Relations and Press Office at NCSR “Demokritos”.
