It has only been a few days since our new intern joined us and we really don’t know much about him. Panagiotis Siokas, a web developer that we gladly welcomed in our team, will stay with us for his 3-month internship. It’s about time to get to know him.
You are the latest intern to join the Agro-Know team. Would you like to share some info on how you found us and what drew your attention in the Agro-Know job opening ?

The Environment and the People
