Phoebe is a Professor in Economics in Athens, where she delivered a masterclass on the Nexus of climate change and challenges in technological innovation, during the EJWP Training Week in October 2022.

“A huge socio-economic transformation is needed for the transition to a sustainable development pathway. The mobilizer of the transition is the unprecedent pace of technological advancement that makes green and digital technologies cost efficient for massive deployment. However, without the up-skilling and re-skilling of the labor force, the technology cannot be adopted. 

EJWP is crucial because its participants are focusing on water industry-related knowledge transfer and personal/professional skills development in international teams. I’m honored to be an EJWP Ambassador,” said Phoebe.
