IEEE Region 8 Secretary
Manager at the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC)
Costas Stasopoulos was born in Cyprus, a European Union member State. In 1983 he moved to the United States where he studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Rutgers, New Jersey, USA. He received his B.Sc in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1987. In 1992 he received a Masters in Business Administration (MBA), Management concentration, from the Maastricht Business School of Management, Netherlands. Upon completion of his studies he worked for three years for SITA, the world's leading service provider of integrated IT business solutions and communication services of the air transport industry. Then he moved on to the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC), the major electricity provider of Cyprus, where he held various Engineering Specialist and Management positions. He currently holds the position of Assistant Area Manager, responsible for the Forward Planning Department. His main interests include Renewable Energy and Smart Grids.
I have been privileged to hold the position of IEEE Region 8 Secretary since 2007. My service to IEEE started as Student member in 1986 and later on I was a founding member of the Cyprus Section, moving through the levels of hierarchy to the position of Chair. Inspired by IEEE’s vision and successful global presence, I have been active, holding various roles of responsibility in committees, chapter and Region activities and IEEE conferences.
As IEEE Region 8 Secretary I have organised and facilitated the logistics of a number of successful Region 8 meetings and events, actively seeking cooperation with all key stakeholders, while striving to be vigilant and considerate to every query or need of the participants. Concerned about the operational efficiency and effectiveness of Region 8, I initiated efforts to explore and implement improvements to Committee Operations and Procedures. One of my most valued accomplishments is excellent relationships with a great number of IEEE colleagues and leaders, a solid foundation for good cooperation and collaboration within the Region as well as within the global IEEE.
