Ilias Saltiel (Athens Makerspace) (GR)
Ilias Saltiel grew up in Athens and studied mechanical engineering in the University of Edinburgh. He worked for a year in Bulgaria as supervisor for 6 photovoltaic parks with the main contractor of AKTOR. 2 years later, the idea of Athens Makerspace came into existence, which connected with hackerspace in London. After extensive research about MakerMovement, he visited several hackerspaces and makerspaces in the US, and envisioned the democratization of the production, the construction and technology in Athens. The winter of 2015 he participated in the competition for “Entrepreneurship in Action”, in the Kapodistrian University, where he won 2nd place. With experience in education of minors, he founded AthensMakerspace with an educational attitude and social purpose.
