ADDITION TO THE BYLAWS
25. To create, according to the decision of the
Executive Committee of “Amfiktionies”, various “Scientific Sectors of Specialised Fields of Knowledge” (SSSFK), such as 1. Dentistry, Medicine, Veterinary as well their respective specialties, 2. the
fields and specialties of the Liberal Arts and Social Studies, 3. Engineering
Schools, 4. Finance, 5. Sciences as well as 6. any other scientific fields taught in Universities.
The aim of the SSSFK is the study, the innovative
research, the application, the advancement and the dissemination of the modern
quality methods and techniques of their scientific fields. Through their
Organising Committees, they will organise symposiums, seminars, conferences,
workshops and other, in order to inform the participating domestic and
international scientists about key topics of interest. Of course, the above
procedures of ‘Life long Continuous Education’ will always be carried under the auspices
and the quality requirements of ‘Amfiktionies’.
The Medical field is a key area for SSSFK, as there
are numerous specialties such as cardiology, endocrinology, oncology, general
medicine, rheumatology, neurology, pathology, psychiatry, general surgery,
paediatrics, urology, nephrology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, gastroenterology
as well as any other specialisation recognised by WHO, together with any supporting
functions and sub-specialties.
The aim of the Medical and Dentist SSSFK is the
scientific - and where possible inter-disciplinary – dynamic information
feed for all Medical staff concerning
the latest updates relating to the epidemiology of immunological disorders, the
prevention, diagnosis, treatment, the support of the quality pharmaceutical
treatment of various illnesses, as well as the education of the public in
preventive issues and early diagnosis.
This timely presentation of modern research information,
laboratory or clinical practices and activities, for the support, advancement
and promotion of the quality medical practice, will be realised through
scientific and/or inter-disciplinary educational events (symposiums, seminars,
conferences, workshops, etc.) and will be addressed towards scientists who live
in Greece or abroad.
The SSSFK for each medical specialty will be run by a
3-member committee (President, Vice-President, and Member), comprised by
renowned scientists of each respective field. The President will be appointed
after being seconded by 3 members of Amfiktionies, while the other 2
(Vice-President and Member) will be appointed by the President of each SSSFK.
The SSSFK committee’s term lasts for 2 years, with the right of renewal. During
their term, the committee enjoys financial self-government and the ability to
choose how to organise scientific events, as long as their activities comply
with the Amfiktionies Bylaws and any decision of the “Amfiktionies” Executive
The above points are true for all SSSFK and not just
the Medical or Dentist ones.
Amfiktionies is not financially or scientifically
responsible for any activity of the SFSKs, unless such a request is approved by
majority in the Executive Committee or in the General Assembly.
encourage the generation of innovative ideas and to disseminate them (through
hosting them at its website) to Greek businessmen and scientists, thus bridging
the gap between scientific research and business activity.
In this case, innovative ideas, services and products
from the field of applied research, which are often considered to have high
added value and enjoy impressive growth, are related to the Digital,
Telecommunication, Energy, Education Technology and other fields.
The aim is to promote, on an international level, the
domestic youth scientific and innovation activity, in order to increase
exposure to global investors and to open doors towards commercial applications.
