Understanding interaction light – biological surfaces: possibility for new electronic materials and devices - PhoBioS
This COST action is being funded by the intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology (Project: CA21159).

Modified carbon nanostructures and related 2D nanomaterials with small organic and coordination molecules as sustainable electrocatalysts - NANOElectroCAT
This research is being supported by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (H.F.R.I.) under the "2nd Call for H.F.R.I. Research Projects to support Post-Doctoral Researchers" (Project Number: 00913). Post-doctoral fellow: Dr. Amalia Rapakousiou (N.H.R.F.)
NANOElectroCAT received the 4th highest grade out of 149 projects from all Physical Sciences fields in all Greek Universities and Research Institutions in the specific call.

Innovative Industrial Materials with Advanced Multifunctionality, Prolonged Lifetime and Improved Performance Against Environmental Conditions for Versatile Protective Equipment – PROTECT
This research is being supported by the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call "Research-Create-Innovate" (Project: Τ2ΕΔΚ-01316).
PROTECT received the 2nd highest grade out of 206 projects in the field of "Materials-Constructions" that competed in the specific call amongst all Greek Universities, Research Institutions, SMEs, and Industries.

Advancing the Sustainable Nature of Catalysis: New Synthetic Methodologies and Valuable Organic Architectures – SUSTAIN
This research is being supported by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (H.F.R.I.) under the "First Call for H.F.R.I. Research Projects to support Faculty members and Researchers and the procurement of high cost research equipment grant" (Project Number: 16).
SUSTAIN was one of the only 12 funded proposals from all Physical Sciences fields in all Greek Universities and Research Institutions in the specific call.

A paradigm shift in cancer therapy - using mitochondria-powered chemiluminescence to non-invasively treat inaccessible tumours – LUMIBLAST
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement: 712921).
LUMIBLAST was evaluated as 6th out of 821 submitted proposals in all research areas in the specific call of 2016 (with 1.3% success rate) and won European Commission's Innovation Radar Prize in the Category "Innovative Science 2019".

Sustainable Catalytic Systems in Organic Synthesis
This work was co-funded by the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program "Human Resources Development, Education and Lifelong Learning" (NSRF 2014-2020), under the call "Supporting Researchers with an Emphasis on Young Researchers - Cycle B" (MIS: 5047938).
This project was evaluated as 6th out of 291 submitted proposals from all Physical Sciences fields in all Greek Universities and Research Institutions.

Cobalt and Nickel Complexes with NHC Ligands: Electrochemistry and (Electro)catalysis
This research was supported by the Programme for the Promotion of the Exchange and Scientific Cooperation Between Greece and Germany – IKYDA2018.
