  • [01] Education bill aims at better state universities

    The government's unswerving goal was to create good state universities in Greece that were equal to the best universities abroad and the draft framework bill for higher education was a first step in this direction, Education and Religious Affairs Minister Marietta Yiannakou said on Friday.

    She was speaking in Sparti while laying the foundation stone for the new facilities of the University of the Peloponnese.

    Yiannakou also expressed satisfaction that a project that was vital for both Sparti and the prefecture of Laconia was starting to take form while she was at the helm of the education ministry.

    The new university buildings will cover an area of 6,000 square metres and include a 400-seat auditorium equipped with the latest audiovisual and automatic translation technology, an electronic library and fully-equipped IT laboratories.

    [02] Alzheimer's skin patch on Greek market

    A new treatment, in the form of a skin patch, will be used by patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's dementia, and is expected to be on the Greek market in October.

    The patch will be used to convey the drug rivastigmine through patients' skin, eliminating the need for the consumption of pills orally on a daily basis.

    The announcement was made during the 5th conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders, held in Thessaloniki.
