Updates regarding coronavirus COVID-19

In Fall 2020, ACT is planning to deliver its normal academic offerings with very little deviation. We are preparing for an on-campus delivery, but at the same time, since the virus crisis is not over, we are also developing all the necessary protocols and mechanisms that will ensure that campus presence is safe. Recognizing that some students may not be able to physically come to campus, we are also developing the necessary infrastructure that can accommodate them with real-time electronically mediated instruction.

A new GreenHouse in Alexandroupoli

Alexandroupolis was a new addition in the line of cities which hosted a GreenHouse startup workshop. The workshop, organized by the Entrepreneurship Hub of ACT - The American College of Thessaloniki and The Hellenic Initiative (THI) was successfully conducted in the premises of the Chamber of Evros (November, 22 - 25), and in the Municipality of the city of Didymoteiho (November, 26).

The well-attended event was organized with the collaboration of The Chamber of Evros, The Department of Molecular Biology & Genetics of the Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH), and the Municipality of Didymoteiho.

The GreenHouse workshop focused on the training of startupers on how to turn a smart idea into a successful business. The 35 selected participants came individually or in teams, covering almost all areas of economic activities. The experts – business executives, entrepreneurs, startupers, professors and partners of the Democritus University of Thrace and ACT – gave participants the opportunity to obtain a good perspective on successful business practices regarding business & strategy planning, human resources management, financial tools, financial management, marketing strategy, and networking. Emphasis was given on Research and Development (R&D) that leads to innovative startups in the field of Biosciences since many participants were students of the Molecular Biology & Genetics department of the Democritus University of Thrace.
