 A 28-year-old pathway !!

Alkis-HiH Best of Year-DSC05285-50

The ΙΗΜΑ 'Best of Year 2015'-Excellence in Holography award to the Hellenic Institute of Holography in Shanghai, China, marks the culmination of a very long pathway to success. This prize is only presented when the judges see an application that is truly outstanding to justify its elevation to best project of the year. The award was granted not only for the creation of the Bowater Collection of Fabergé OptoClones™ by Andreas Sarakinos, scientific director of HiH, but also for the development of dedicated display systems incorporating optimized illuminants. Naturally, the honour is further extended to all involved partners of HiH in this project, individuals and parties such as ITMO University and the Fabergé Museum from St. Petersburg, Russia as well as James Bowater, main sponsor of the venture.

A medal well deserved ! 

Andreas-Sarakinos-Denisyuk-Medal-25

Within the framework of the most important meeting of world holographers, the 10th International Symposium of Display Holography, which took place in July for the first time ever in St. Petersburg, Russia, the scientific director of HiH, Andreas Sarakinos was honoured with the Yuri Denisyuk medal  of the D.S. Rozhdestvensky Optical Society 'for the application of new techniques in the recording of colour holograms'. The joint organization of the Symposium by ITMO University and HiH in memoriam of Yuri N. Denisyuk (inventor of the type of holograms featuring his name) during 2015- the UNESCO Int'l Year of Light- marked a special point in time for this distinguished award to a person, who has practically dedicated the largest part of his professional life to display holography.

 At the top-10 of Innovation

ΗΙΗ-ΕλλαδαΚαινοτομει -Καθημερινη-large

The ranking of the ' Τhree-dimensional Optical Clones of Works of Art ' in the top-10 of Applied Research among 208 candidates in the 3rd Competition "Greece Innovates!" (a joint initiative of Eurobank and the Federation of Greek Enterprises) is another public recognition of HiH activities. The proposal of the Hellenic Institute of Holography attracted wide publicity within Greece with special reports in Greek language daily press (KATHIMERINI), in TV (SKAI-First Line) and dedicated road-shows in selected academic venues in Greece. During the open-to-public verbal appraisal (video), Andreas Sarakinos and Tasos Tzerahoglou had the opportunity to demonstrate 'live' results obtained with the proprietary equipment developed by HiH.
