Dr Androula G. Nassiopoulou received the B.Sc. degree in Physics from the University of Athens in 1975 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D degrees from the University of Paris XI (ORSAY) in 1977 and 1980 respectively. She then moved to the University of Reims, France as Associate Professor, from where she received the habilitation to direct research (Doctorat d’Etat) in 1985. She joined NCSR Demokritos in 1986. In 1996 she has been elected by an international scientific committee as the Director of the Institute of Microelectronics (MEL), one of the eight Institutes of NCSR Demokritos and served the Institute from this position for two consecutive mandates (1996-2009). As Director of IMEL, she contributed to its establishment as the National Centre of Excellence in Micro, Nanoelectronics and Sensors. She raised “funds for Excellence” in 2001 and 2005 that served to develop a fully equipped Si processing laboratory in clean room, complemented by structural, electrical and optical characterization facility. During her two mandates IMEL developed important expertise and know-how in its field and established its role in the European and National research scene: it became founding member of the European Institute of Nanoelectronics-SINANO, member of the European Nanoelectronics technology platform ENIAC, founding member of the National Scientific Society Micro&Nano and founding associate member of the Hellenic Semiconductor Industry Association.
Dr Nassiopoulou was also member of the board of Management of NCSR Demokritos in 1996-2009 and Vice President of NCSR Demokritos in 2001-2003, member of the Greek National Research Council in 2001-2003, member of the Expert Advisory Group of NMP-FP6 in 2003-2005, member of the Scientific Community Council of the European Nanoelectronics platform (ENIAC) in 2008-2012, member of the Governing Board of the European Institute of Nanoelectronics (Sinano) in 2009-2012 and currently the President of its General Assembly. She was also the founder and for nine years the President of the Greek National scientific society “Micro & Nano”, devoted to Micro and Nanoelectronics, Nanotechnologies, and MEMS. Dr Nassiopoulou is currently Director of Research at the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (INN) of NCSR Demokritos, coordinates the Nanoelectrinics, Photonics and Microsystems program of the Institute and is the Head of the “Nanostructures for Nanoelectronics, Photonics and Sensors” research group.

Dr A. G. Nassiopoulou has been involved in a large number of EU research projects, the most recent being: 1) FP7-ICT-NoE Nanofunction, Contr. No 257375 on “Beyond CMOS Nanodevices for Adding Functionalities to CMOS”, EU FP7 ENIAC JU, project SE2A, Contract No 120009 on “Nanoelectronics for Sale, Fuel Efficient and Environment Friendly Automotive Solutions” and FP7 CSA- project NANO-TEC, Contract No 257964 on “Beyond CMOS Nanodevices for Adding Functionalities to CMOS”. She coordinated a large number of national projects and grants including project granted for the Institute Excellence in 2001 and 2005, a project AKMON with matching funds for industrial projects and several research projects from the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (5 EPET, 2 PENED, several bilateral projects with different countries etc.).
Dr A. G. Nassiopoulou is author or co-author of over 250 publications in international journals, reviews, books, and conference proceedings, has been granted 5 patents, edited 16 Special issues of International Journals/Conference Proceedings and chaired/co-chaired more than 15 International and National Conferences and Symposia, including 5 PSST Conferences held every two years in Spain, 3 Micro&Nano Conferences held every three years in Athens and 3 E-MRS Symposia within the E-MRS Conference held every year in Strasbourg or Nice, France.
Involvement in Education and training
Dr A. G. Nassiopoulou is involved in Higher Education and training, mainly at Master and PhD level. Her involvement in Higher Education started with an Associate Professorship at the University of Reims in France (5 years of full teaching program (1980-85)) and continued with yearly courses in the PhD course program of NCSR Demokritos (1986-1997), the MSc/PhD program on Microelectronics of the National and Kapodistriac University of Athens, for the establishment of which she actively contributed (1997-today), the MSc program of NTUA on microsystems and nanodevices (2007-2012), and the MSc/PhD program of the University of Thessaloniki on Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (2004-2010). She supervised 18 PhD theses and several MSc and diploma theses, She participated in more than 25 PhD examination committees in Greece, France and Cyprus.
