He has been coordinator of more than 20 National and European research programs. Within this frame, he has established collaboration with the main “heavy” industries of Greece, such as LARKO, Aluminium Hellas, TITAN, AGET, Bauxites Parnassos, National Power Coorporation etc. He is instructor of the courses of the Department of Chemical Engineering UPatras, of Materials Science, Metallurgy, Strength of Materials, Mechanics of Materials, Surface Treatments of Metals. Moreover he is person in charge for the training of the students in industries and companies. He has been member of organisation and/or scientific committees in several International or National Conferences. He has been member of the Executive Committee F7 “Surface Characteristics” Carbon and Steel, ECSC, of the European Union. Advisor of students in the frame of Erasmus-Socrates and Leonardo programs (collaboration with France, Italy, Romania, Turkey, Bulgaria, Spain).
