EMC2 had a successful presence at the exciting international exhibition 'Greek Innovation Expo 2013' that was held from 16 to 19 May at the Helexpo Palace exhibition center in Athens, Greece.
The EMC2 team presented more than twenty innovative applications based on the research conducted by the centre's research partners, of which more than ten innovative ideas belong to our Greek research partner: the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas / Information Technologies Institute (CERTH/ITI). The EMC2 team also conducted several one-to-one business meetings with Greek and international companies that laid the groundwork for future collaborations; we sure hope that those collaborations will lead to the transformation of our partners' research achievements to successful innovative products.
Dozens of professionals, technologists, entrepreneurs, representatives of companies, researchers and other stakeholders visited the EMC2 stand. Finally, at the invitation of the organizers the centre's Secretary, Mr Lazaros Gymnopoulos, presented EMC2 and the Greek research partner (CERTH/ITI) in a special workshop on the final day of the event.
