European Lifelong Learning Educational Policy in the Light of the “Lisbon Agenda”: The Greek Case
Eugenia Panitsidou,Adamantios Papastamatis
Review of European Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/res.v1n1p2
Abstract: Investment in human capital emerged as core priority for European Union (EU) policies at the Lisbon European Council of 23 and 24 March 2000, shifting the perspective as regards the correlation between economic and social capital, and providing for strategic goals in order to strengthen employment, economic reform and social cohesion. Hence, novel priorities have emerged for Greek educational policy, accrediting exceptional significance to lifelong learning so as to raise compatibility with the “knowledge based society” mandates. The present paper attempts a policy impact analysis through thorough review of Greek education and training policies undertaken to respond to the European challenges. In the light of the evolving Lisbon agenda, it takes account of the legal context and underlying principles of Greek educational policy with respect to lifelong learning, to draw upon the impact of an EU convergence policy activating educational initiatives and objectives to attain sustainable growth development.

Review of European Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/res.v3n1p2
Abstract: This paper is part of a research project which aims to identify the teachers’ educational needs and the implementation of Informatics and Communication Technologies (ICT) and its impact on teaching, learning and cognitive processes as well as the students’ behavioural adaptation. In the main research, 118 primary school teachers from the island of Lesvos in Greece participated, 36 of them (30.5%) were male and 82 (69.5%) were female teachers. The questionnaire used in this research consists of seven issue units. Teachers who took part in the research were not totally satisfied with the training that they had already received but on the other hand, they were positive in the idea of continuous training, whereas there are differentiations among demographic units concerning the characteristics of training.
Facilitating Teachers’ and Educators’ Effective Professional Development
Adamantios Papastamatis,Eugenia A. Panitsidou,Panagiotis Giavrimis,Efstratios Papanis
Review of European Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/res.v1n2p83
Abstract: Contemporary educational systems in Western societies are being redefined within the context of technological and scientific evolution in relation to socio-economic globalisation. Therefore, it is important for educational authorities to design staff development programmes with a view to helping professionals adjust their ideology and practice effectively in order to contribute to the implementation of a learning culture and the formation of the “knowledge-based society”. The aim of the present paper is to review the field of teaching professionals’ professional growth, identifying weaknesses, highlighting trends and practices, and providing suggestions, most important for professionals and educational authorities in Greece where staff development programmes fail to reach standards met by other European countries. It focuses on staff development models that enable facilitation of teachers' efficacy, cognitive development, and career development, as well as teacher collegiality and the improvement of school culture, reconceptualising schools as “learning organisations”.
Training Needs of Psychiatric Nursing Staff In Acute Wards. An Empirical Study in the Psychiatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, Greece

International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: A study was carried out to identify the training needs of psychiatric nursing staff working in acute wards. Which type of learning, which training needs and how want the training to be delivered. Qualification and accreditation were also examined. Questionnaires were given to 70 nurses working in the 5 acute wards of Psychiatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, Greece. The key findings were that most participants wanted to be trained in practical nursing skills in every day practice. The most preferable training thematic was: a) Management of violent and aggressive behavior, b) Risk assessment, c) The suicidal patient, d) Clinical assessment skills, e) The patient with psychosis and f) Communication skills. Accreditation was very important and they wanted to gain professional qualification. The empirical study highlighted the need for further training, in the frames of Continuing Education. The findings could be of great interest for The National Center of Public Administration, as useful informative material, according to the real training needs of the specific group.

Accessible Internet-of-Things and Internet-of-Content Services for All in the Home or on the Move
Dimitris Tektonidis,Adamantios Koumpis
International Journal of Interactive Mobile Technologies (iJIM) , 2012, DOI: 10.3991/ijim.v6i4.2190
Abstract: Public authorities and national healthcare service providers across the European Union and beyond are increasingly under pressure to deliver better services with diminishing resources. Users, quite rightly, demand a high standard of service and increasingly also convenience focused on the needs of the users rather than how the services are organised to deliver them. Users, on the whole, also prefer to be supported in their homes, and be free to move as much as possible. While users without impairments and generally well provided for, there are increasingly also users who have special needs, including the aged and those with a range of physical and mental disabilities who are unable to make effective use of such services from their homes due to the lack of proactive and accessible services. The idea we promote in the chapter is to provide better support to users with disabilities and impairments from the comfort of their home by means of providing them with a set of scalable services which can be either offered for free or purchased through some central form of a marketplace repository.

Bounding the mass of the graviton with gravitational waves: Effect of spin precessions in massive black hole binaries
Adamantios Stavridis,Clifford M. Will
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.80.044002
Abstract: Observations of gravitational waves from massive binary black hole systems at cosmological distances can be used to search for a dependence of the speed of propagation of the waves on wavelength, and thereby to bound the mass of a hypothetical graviton. We study the effects of precessions of the spins of the black holes and of the orbital angular momentum on the process of parameter estimation using matched filtering of gravitational-wave signals vs. theoretical template waveforms. For the proposed space interferometer LISA, we show that precessions, and the accompanying modulations of the gravitational waveforms, are effective in breaking degeneracies among the parameters being estimated, and effectively restore the achievable graviton-mass bounds to levels obtainable from binary inspirals without spin. For spinning, precessing binary black hole systems of equal masses (10^6 solar masses) at 3 Gpc, the bounds on the graviton Compton wavelength achievable are of the order of 5 X 10^{16} km.
Evolution equations for slowly rotating stars
Adamantios Stavridis,Kostas D. Kokkotas
Physics , 2004, DOI: 10.1142/S021827180500592X
Abstract: We present a hyperbolic formulation of the evolution equations describing non-radial perturbations of slowly rotating relativistic stars in the Regge--Wheeler gauge. We demonstrate the stability preperties of the new evolution set of equations and compute the polar w-modes for slowly rotating stars.
