The award recognises the important work of educators who are dedicated to the improvement of blockchain awareness and knowledge.

“It is an honour to receive this award, which recognises academia and higher education as a foundational and critical pillar of the FinTech and Blockchain ecosystem,” Dr Salampasis said.

“As for me, it encapsulates years of hard work in developing educational and pedagogical expertise within such a multi-faceted, complex, novel and fast developing space.”

Prior joining academia, Dimitrios worked in the management consulting industries being involved in global advisory and consulting activities on emerging market investing assisting companies in developing long-term strategic focus and sustainable market business strategies.
