Smart Attica European Digital Innovation Hub participated in the workshop “Innovation in Western Greece and the bodies that support it 3.0”, that was held live on 16 and 17 March at the Cultural – Conference Center of the University of Patras.

The two-day event was organised in the context of the Regional Growth Conference and mapped out innovation in Western Greece through 16 panels, 125 speakers and 13 workshops, along with the participation of 55 stakeholders and organisations in the workshops and the discussions.

Some key questions, that arose in the event are: How is innovation implemented in Western Greece today? 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?
