Welcome letter by the Director of EUSO 2014 Athens

English

Since I met Michael Cotter in Dublin in 2002 and Greece joined the foundation of European Union Science Olympiad (EUSO), I have strongly supported his idea to organize the EUSO competition every year.

After the first EUSO competition, that took place in Dublin in 2004, I had a dream: To organize a EUSO competition in Athens.

Following what Paolo Coelho said in The Alchemist, “when you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” and despite the difficult times my country is going through, my dream is going to come true in the following days.

My colleagues and I, feel very excited on the response of the students and teachers from 25 European Union countries to participate in 12th EUSO competition.

I would like to welcome you in Greece and I hope we all gain a lifetime experience!
