Know Agro-Know: Meet Kelly Tzirita

Tzirita_Kelly

I still remember the time when the only two agronomists of Agro-Know were Babis and me, which may sound strange for a company named Agro-Know; however, it is obvious that what we are doing here in Agro-Know goes much further than a typical agricultural information management and related tasks. The team includes a number of people with different backgrounds, skills and expertise.

Things have changed in the meantime and Kelly is currently the sixth (!!) agronomist in the team (Babis, Maritina, Thodoris, Vasilis and me being the rest). She is currently helping us organize the huge list of contacts that we have acquired throughout the years and during good (and great sometimes!) collaborations in the context of projects and contracts – and this is only a part of her internship!… Click to read the full post

Know Agro-Know: Meet Vasilis Kourousias

Vasilis at Afjord, Norway (2013)

The Agro-Know internship program seems to be on fire during the last months; a lot of people decide to join Agro-Know in the context of an internship, during which they get to learn about Agro-Know as well as about all the work that we are doing in different fields while at the same time they offer their fresh view and ideas in the implementation of various tasks.

Vasilis Kourousias is an agronomist with previous experience in project management, who is currently supporting the Project Management department of Agro-Know. Vasilis was kind enough to take some time and provide us with his responses to our questions, which you may find right below:

Popi Tsavlopoulou is almost the newest member of our team. She supports the Agro-Know Admin Department as our Culture & Talent Development intern and is already working on the sensitive tasks of the company’s Human Resources, working with issues related to cultural activities, coordination of internal trainings and development plans etc.  She is also the person most actively involved in the organization and coordination of Agro-Know events such as the All-Hands Sessions, the Value of the Month session and the Book Club series of meetings – and let’s not forget the really well-organized Agro-Know Christmas party!

November is here and this time we are interviewing Maritina Stavrakaki, a special member of our team – she’s not an intern, she’s not a full-time member but she’s continuing her research after finishing with her PhD really recently. The interesting fact is that Maritina manages to combine her research with the work that we are doing in Agro-Know, something that I personally find really interesting and challenging at the same time. Let’s see what Maritina has responded to our questions!
