"The Skyros Port Fund, the University of West Attica and the University of the Aegean, three model Public Agencies, joined their forces and embraced the new generation with a common goal “inspiring the young scientists through the right example”. Skyros Project is not just the name of a program. It is an innovation in education, based on the practice of Excellence, being implemented in the most award-winning and comprehensive small Public Port of Greece. In a port that operates successfully, strives for upgrade, sets high goals, envisions and exemplifies. This port is the Linaria Port of Skyros! The Skyros Project illustrates how Public Administration, Infrastructure, Local Community and Young Scientists are becoming a tight feast, embracing the preservation of the environment, communicating its politically correct way of management and educating those involved in order to adapt Excellence as a way of social and individual progress. Skyros Project has the tights of a family presenting hope for betterness, it is a part of the country we want to have!”
