Dr. Stratakis Emmanuel
Research Director

Dr Emmanuel Stratakis is a Research Director at FORTH-IESL, where he is leading the “Ultrafast Laser Micro- and Nano- processing” laboratory. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Crete in 2001. He has been a Visiting Scientist at the University of California Berkeley in the fall semesters of 2006 and 2008. He has delivered more than 40 invited and keynote lectures and has been organizer and chair in major international scientific conferences. He has over 170 SCI publications and more than 6000 citations and he has coordinated many National and EU grants. He has been an Editor of the Optoelectronic Advances, Materials Today (Bio), Applied Sciences and International Journal of molecular Sciences. Since 2015, he is the Director of the European Nanoscience Facility of FORTH, part of the NFFA-Europe EU Infrastructure, where he is a member of the General Assembly. He is a National Representative to the High-Level Group of EU on Nanosciences, Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials and a National Expert for the Horizon 2020 committee configurations on: Nanotechnologies, Advanced materials, Biotechnology, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing. He is a member of the Scientific Committee of COST, of the Physical Sciences sectoral scientific council of the National Council for Research & Innovation of Greece and national Delegate of the OECD Working Party on Bio-, Nano- and Converging Tech (BNCT).
