Education Ministry Bill for Industrial PhDs to Parliament Soon

ATHENS – The education ministry will soon be tabling a draft bill in parliament on issues such as industrial PhDs, visiting professors and researchers and sundry issues regarding teaching staff, according to an announcement on Tuesday.

The aim of the bill is to create stronger links between education and the needs of industry, including commercial uses of the results of research carried out for PhD papers and the production of innovative products or services.

The article on visiting academic staff, extended to include visiting researchers, will allow universities to employ new staff with very high qualifications, the ministry said.

Other articles concern the deadline by which teaching staff can apply for long-term leave of absence for family or other reasons (May 31) and a final date for a decision (June 30).


ATHENS - There was keen investor interest in acquiring a 27 percent stake in Piraeus Bank from Greece’s bank bailout fund, which was oversubscribed as it will be the third of the country’s four biggest banks to be fully privatized.
