cooperation-iconThe aim of the Program “Cooperation 2011” is to enhance collaboration between the country’s businesses and research bodies through common implementation of research and technological projects fostering green development, competitiveness and outward orientation of Greek businesses and improving Greek citizens' quality of life.
