The JRC IPTS, together with its partners in the region, have organised a series of Entrepreneurial Discovery Process (EDP) focus groups in the Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. These focus groups gathered together stakeholders from the business, research, government sectors, as well as civil society in the sectors of wine, meat and dairy, tourism and non-metallic minerals. These events aimed at identifying potential avenues for innovation activities in the region, encouraging ongoing interaction among participants. Presentations from national and international experts on relevant topics were followed by group discussions, structured using a dedicated participatory methodology. The results are a set of potential innovative ideas aligned with the RIS3, as well as the ongoing refinement of a valuable methodological tool. More details on each event are available.
