Panos Mylonas was born on July 12, 1982 in Athens, his native city, where he lived with his family.

Panos was a charismatic young man who stood out for his diligence, his moral standards and dependability, his smile and love for life.

He completed the 4th Lyceum (Senior High School) of Maroussi and began studying in the Department of Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Patras in 2000. He was a senior student and had opted to do his specialization in the field of Energy and the Environment. His final thesis, which he failed to complete, had to do with Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles.

At school, he always obtained the highest grades and was awarded merits and distinctions by the Ministry of Education, Union of Journalists etc. Furthermore, he stood out for his openness, exceptionally high moral standards, positive approach to life and creativity. At a young age – from Primary School – he began to show an interest in model making and go-kart racing. At the age of 13, he began writing articles for “Modeling” magazine about modeling and model racing. In Junior High School (Gymnasium) he showed an interest in car technology and engineering and had travelled to other countries, where he had the opportunity to visit museums and related events-presentations (Germany, England, Finland, etc.)

Along with his studies he worked as an editor for the “Auto Moto” and “Sport” magazine, which he also frequently represented at events held in Greece and abroad, and was in fact the youngest journalist in Europe in the WRC. His love of cars and Engineering, his knowledge and enthusiasm to learn combined to make him, even at his young age, a fully-fledged and creditable professional and one of the most promising people in the area of technology and journalism. Being a writer for a car magazine meant he had even greater driving experience and knowledge about how to drive carefully and safely. Unfortunately, however, this was not enough to save him from the poor condition of the road and the unprincipled behavior of certain drivers.

In memory of Panos Mylonas, it was decided to support activities related to Engineering, Road Safety and Road Culture as well as matters related to study, research and technology, promoting and praising actions and activities in these areas. To encourage student research projects in Engineering Schools, the subject area indicatively focuses on: Internal Combustion Engines, the Aerodynamics of Vehicles, the Passive Safety of Vehicles, the Active Safety of Vehicles, Road Safety, the Dynamic Analysis of Vehicles, the Interior and Exterior Design of Vehicles, Alternative Source of Energy for Vehicles and Vehicle Production.

In his writing, Panos not only regarded the car as a technological achievement but also as a means to enhance the mobility of human kind with inanimate mechanical devices acquiring the characteristics and personality of a living organism, with the car also taking on some of the personality of its creator-manufacturer and also of the one who chooses it. Because of the abundance of work, despite his age, Panos had published in magazines and on the Internet on the subject of the car and go-karting, attempts are being made for a publication to take place specifically with the aim of publishing/presenting work related to areas in which Panos was active during the last years of his life as an engineering student and as an editor-writer for the specialist car Press (covering races, international events, trying out and presenting cars, etc).

The University of Patras decided to establish a scholarship in the name of Panos Mylonas. It was also decided that a foundation should be set up whose aim would be to support matters relating to road safety, road culture, study, research and technology in the area of cars and above all the prevention and reduction of traffic accidents.
