Karakitsios on the TV program hosted by Fanis Papathanasiou and Marion Mihelidaki on the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (Friday, 16th October 2015).

Panagiotis Karakitsios is the Founder & CEO at Geomiso (www.geomiso.com).

Geomiso is the first worldwide fully integrated CAD/ CAE software (disruptive innovation), which solved a major industrial problem (remained unsolved since 1960) bridging the gap between these two global markets, disrupting them and creating high added value for both the engineers and the engineering applications. It utilizes the new technology of isogeometric analysis. It is is able to design and analyse complex CAD models, from a wide spectrum of applications (automotive, aerospace, naval engineering, defence, architecture, construction, consumer products, biomechanics). Therefore, engineering applications end up being better and more optimized.

Geomiso is creating the new generation of engineers, more familiar with CAD.
