#12: Maria Gkemou: How to make the difference with ambitious research and large-scale demonstrations


In this podcast episode, we (finally!) talk to Dr Maria Gkemou from the Centre for Research & Technology, Hellas CERTH in Greece. Maria is in the team of the Technical and Innovation Management of SHOW, at the heart of the technological development of the project.

Maria shares her view about the innovations developed in the project and how they can help improve the overall mobility system. Regarding the high ambitions of the project, Maria emphasizes that “you need to make the difference if you want to make [the project] worth it and have an impact.”
