1,423 participants attended this year’s Innovation Workshops in Athens and other regions.

320 organizations, businesses, universities and research centers participated in 45 panels, of a total 35-hour duration, and 12 workshops.
A total of 3 online workshops were organized in Athens, Heraklion and Patras, and the first live two-day Conference in Thessaloniki.

The discussion focused on a range of key questions: How is innovation implemented in each of these regions? Who can benefit? Which sectors of the economy are affected? Which organizations support the effort of teams and companies to innovate? What financial tools are there? What other forms of support are provided? In the aftermath of the pandemic what is the future outlook?

The workshops provided a forum for presenting innovation support structures for early stage start-ups, actions organized by universities and research centers, innovation competitions, micro-financing for early stage start-ups, institutional bodies supporting entrepreneurship, technology transfer networks in universities and research centers, the role of established companies in the innovation ecosystem, Greek and international financing organizations, innovation in vertical sectors, innovation window funds, and innovation research structures.
