President inaugurates science centre

11/12/2018

Greece’s President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, inaugurated on Monday the Eugenides Foundation “Athena” Centre for Science and Technology (ACST).

The President praised this initiative claiming the ACST will contribute greatly to the scientific and technological education of young Greeks and congratulated the Foundation for its invaluable service to the Greek public in the last 60 years.

Pavlopoulos also added that the ACST will help the most hopeful part of Greek society to be exposed from early on to the age-old dilemma of how to deal with technology and its achievements.

“I am referring, in specific, to the technophobe-technophile polarity and the ensuing disputes between adherents of the two camps,” he said, and argued that this image of juxtaposition is a stereotype that needs to be done away with.

Finally, Pavlopoulos stressed the need for a wider and fuller recognition of the fact that behind information science’s important technological achievements are bright and innovative ideas produced by human minds.

“It should not escape our attention that the spirit is remarkably at work behind the seemingly cold electronic technology,” he concluded.
