The Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace (REMTh) organized the Thematic Workshop of Entrepreneurial Discovery for the chain values of Chemicals-Polymer Materials and Electronic/Electrical Equipment, within the framework of the Preparatory Action for the implementation of Smart Specialisation Strategy (RIS3). The Workshop took place on the 23rd of September in Kavala, with the participation of more than 70 stakeholders coming from enterprises, public authorities and academic institutions.
During the initial plenary session, Mr. Constantinos Kokkinoplitis presented the Region's Smart Specialisation Strategy, along with the initial calls for proposals that are planned to be launched in the very near future.
This was followed by two parallel thematic sessions (one for each chain value), during which academic experts made presentations on cutting-edge research topics that served as catalyst for the process of idea generation and exchange among the participants.
All in all, the process of the Entrepreneurial Discovery proved to be fruitful, given that many feasible ideas were proposed and the linkages among the stakeholders were reinforced fostering the development of future synergies.
