Seven Greeks among world’s ‘most influential scientific minds’
Seven Greek academics have made it onto the Thomson Reuters corporation’s 2016 list of the World’s 3,000 Most Influential Scientific Minds, which recognizes scientists who “have made the most significant global impact within their respective field of study” based on an analysis of the number and quality of citations each receive.
The Greeks who were distinguished among thousands of peers around the world are Dimitra Daferera and Moschos Polissiou of Athens Agricultural University; Meletios-Athanassios Dimopoulos and Gerasimos Filippatos of Athens Medical School, IT professor George Karagiannidis of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and National Technical University of Athens professors Dimitris Rakopoulos and Constantinos Rakopoulos.
The lion’s share of the scientists on the list are at top-flight universities in the United States, followed by Britain, Germany, China and Australia.
