Brief CV

Dr. Andreas Panagopoulos is a Hydrogeologist, Research Director at the Soil & Water Resources Institute (SWRI) of the Hellenic Agricultural Organisaton. His main scientific interests concern water resources management with emphasis in agriculture, monitoring, modelling and policy, NEXUS systems management through participatory approaches, hydrogeology and climate change impact assessment in water bodies. He has more than 25 years of working experience and has participated in more than 40 national and international research projects in most of which as scientific responsible for SWRI, or WP leader. He has worked as a consultant for European and Greek partnerships in the implementation of development studies in Greece and Turkey (EUROPAID) concerning the protection and management of water resources in the framework of the implementation of European Directives. He has acted as a member of the National Water Council and a nominated national representative in the CIS WG groundwater of the EU. He is also the co-founder of Pinios Hydrologic Observatory, which is included in International Long Term Ecological Research (ILTER) sites and the European Network of Hydrological Observatories (ENOHA) network. He has been the Director of Land Reclamation Institute for 4 years.
