Also present at the lecture were the former prime ministers of Greece, Messrs George Papandreou and Lucas Papademos, the NKUA’s Vice-Rector for Finance and Development, Professor Aristeidis Samitas, the member of the Administration Council of NKUA, Professor Dimitris Kenourgios, the Dean of the NKUA’s School of Economics and Political Sciences, Professor Nikolaos Eriotis, the Chair of the NKUA’s Department of Economics, Professor Stelios Kotsios, the Emeritus Professors of NKUA, Ms Louka Katseli and Mr Panagiotis Petrakis, et al.

The title of Professor Stiglitz’s lecture was ‘Green Industrial Policy: Saving the Planet Without a Trade War’.

Green Industrial Policy is now at the epicentre of international scientific interest and—among other things—seeks sustainable development and environmental protection without reigniting trade wars, but rather by promoting renewable energy sources, supporting a sustainable and circular economy, advancing the research and development of green technologies, and fostering international cooperation and diplomacy in the above fields.
