Deree at the Delphi Economic Forum 2018

“New Globalization and Growth Challenges” was the theme of the 3rd Delphi Economic forum held in Delphi, March 1-4, 2018.

This year’s 420 distinguished speakers and 55 different panels, addressing more than 1.800 attendees, aimed at examining the main global trends, assessing their implications and reviewing the resulting challenges and policy options confronting decision-makers of the wider Eastern Mediterranean Region. Moreover, the Forum dealt with Greece’s need for structural reforms and highlighted the need for a new model of governance.

Forty-five Deree students from various study fields representing both undergraduate and graduate programs, were given the unique opportunity to attend the various sessions and “rub shoulders” with prominent speakers from Greece and abroad. The students were actively engaged throughout the Forum making a strong presence with their comments during the Q&A sessions. They were escorted by Vice President of Public Affairs Claudia Carydis and Dr. Constantine Papadopoulos, professor in the International Business Department.

VP Carydis represented ACG as the moderator of the two panels held on the future landscape of higher education, with the participation of speakers from Greece, the US and the UK. These panels focused on the prevailing trends that shape higher education globally, as well as the specific challenges both public and private higher education institutions are facing in Greece and the need to address those with the necessary decisions and reforms.

“We are very happy to have given this opportunity to our students who in turn, greatly enjoyed being part of it all. This is a highly stimulating forum where important ideas are exchanged and generated while everybody has plenty of opportunities to meet and develop new, high-level contacts”, Claudia Carydis said.
