Innovation for Society Awards 2024

There is a growing consensus that innovation policies should be directed towards addressing societal challenges. In this direction, the One Stop Liaison Office of the Central Macedonia Region is planning, for the first time in 2024, the implementation of the Open Innovation Competition – Innovation for Society Awards (IFS).

The IFS Action aims to promote collaboration, creativity and innovation through the innovative solutions that will result from the cooperation of Challenge Owners (established companies) with Solution Providers, such as:

  • start-ups/spin-offs
  • researchers and/or research teams & labs,
  • individuals and/or teams of individuals.
  • tech companies with innovative approaches/design

Objectives of the Action:

  • Highlighting the potential of the regional innovation ecosystem
  • Strengthening and promoting collaborations between businesses and researchers to find  innovative solutions with a social impact.

The initiation of the Action will take place on 25.04.2024 at I. Vellidis in the context of Beyond and the Technology Forum.

The IFS site has now been launched! Visit and learn more about the initiave and the 2024 Challenges!
