Research scientist, Applications in Telemedicine taking rapid advantage of cable television network evolution to demonstrate how European health-care providers can offer cost-effective care to patients at home. The main outcome of ATTRACT work will be a set of broadband network applications providing low cost interactive health-care services at home very competitively. These applications will be based on existing and developing European Cable Television network infrastructures in order to provide all kind of users with affordable homecare services (EC DG XIII,5th Framework Programm R&D project,Telematics 2C).


Research scientist, Crete-A telematics center: to contribute to the development of Information Society at the Regional Level. It includes R&D in three application domains, culture, health and public administration. By building on the results of previous research and development projects of ICS-FORTH, the main objective of te project is to develop the technological infrastructure of the region, to deploy at a large scale advance multi-sectorial telematics applications and services, to evaluate their cost/benefit and cost effectiveness, and to contribute to the preparation of the Region for entering into the Information age(INTERREG II).
