technologyThe conference “Made in Greece” covered all aspects of business activities from industrial manufacturing, to software development and research. In particular, the Greek innovative technology had a special presence at the first conference of exports and five companies of high technology presented their activities and impressive business achievements as well.

According to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Greece exports high technology products worth over 1 billion euros per year. This amount exceeds twice the income that comes from extra virgin olive oil, which is a traditional product.

Moreover, there are Greek companies and researchers internationally distinguished in the applications of mobile digital communications, in bio-medical technology, in microelectronics and aerospace. These Greek innovative companies are: the Association of Mobile Application Companies (HAMAC), the Startup Association (iEENE), the Association of Space Technology Industries and HBio specialized in Biotechnology.

The General Director of HAMAC, Mr. Yannis Kotsis-Giannarakis underlined that the major purpose is to expand these companies to international markets, facilitating the access to risk capital and implement the cooperation between the research and academic community. The aim is also to develop business relations with other economic key factors where the use of technology can provide multiple benefits.

Generally, an innovative entrepreneurship is spreading across Greece, covering the high technology sector and traditional industries as well.

  1. “According to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Greece exports high technology products worth over 1 billion euros per year. This amount exceeds twice the income that comes from extra virgin olive oil, which is a traditional product.”

    Technology also provides good paying jobs due to supply and demand. A highly skilled worker can sometimes produce things an infinite amount of non-skilled workers are incapable of producing.

    Unfortunately a fair chunk of our country behave nothing like Greeks. Instead of focusing on mathematics physics, engineering and other sciences to understand how the natural world works… they sell trinkets to tourists and boast. Pseudo-Greeks that are posers like the Skopians. Incapable of rational thought. Better suited as members of the Taliban or apparchinik of the Soviet Union .

    Defense of hellenism starts with a proper education in the sciences, arts and philosophy not leaning against ancient artifacts and boasting how glorious one is.

  2. Fantastic! I hope thst this means there will be more investments and development in this area.

  3. Now that I read this article… I have a question.

    When the Greeks will overthrow this government and put the traitors of PASOK and NEW DEMOCRACY in jail?

    The change MUST be radical and for good. Rewrite the constitution and make it bullet proof so no vagabonds can sneak through it.
