Information & Communications Technology
The Greek ICT sector has proven quite resilient to the recent economic downturn, driven by a high degree of new technology uptake. Greece’s innovation hubs are picking up momentum, with a wide range of top notch international research taking place at the main domestic Information & Communication Technology (ICT) clusters. There are several ICT clusters in Greece, namely Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras, Irakleio and Ioannina. Nevertheless, Athens is the biggest domestic ICT cluster, housing the biggest talent pool and more than half of the service providing SMEs that form the backbone of the Greek ICT sector.
Greece offers the opportunity to recruit top ICT talent at a fraction of the cost elsewhere, a fact that clearly states Greece’s investment opportunity to international ICT companies: The provision of value adding services from a support center in Greece! That is why Greece is a valid choice for innovation leaders such as NSN, HTC and Microsoft.
