(October 14, 2009) "Whereas the 20th century belonged to the scientist, the 21st century", says Sun Microsystems CTO Greg Papadopoulos, "is the domain of the engineer." Rather than secretly toiling away on new discoveries, modern engineers are concerned about social responsibility, renewable materials and product life cycles, collaborative and open source discovery, and furthering industry-wide innovation.
As Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President of Research and Development at Sun, Greg Papadopoulos directs the company's approximate $2B in R&D portfolio with an eye toward innovation, simplicity and eco-responsibility.
