S3 Priorities as Encoded in the "Eye@RIS3" Tool S3 Priorities as Encoded in the "Eye@RIS3" Tool

Priority Name Description
Agrifood-nutrition Emphasis on high value-added, high nutritional quality, internationally competitive goods, modernized production systems, contributing to economic prosperity and quality-of-life. The link with health/cultural/dietary/gastronomic aspects will be pursued.
Health and pharmaceuticals Biomaterials, tissue engineering, functional foods and nutraceuticals, diagnostic techniques, drug-delivery mechanisms, customized medication, biosensors, bioinformatics and nanomedical applications, telemedicine.
Informatics and telecommunication services Focus on outward-looking competitiveness, on exploring links with horizontal, enabling technologies, and transversal applications throughout the Greek economy (e.g. energy, logistics, agrifood, environment, health, tourism and culture). Key emerging technologies and aspects will be pursued (big data, gamification, future internet structures, 5G technologies, data mgmt. and computational models, learning technologies, human-machine interaction, 'smart' transversal applications).
Energy and its cross-cutting implications (transport, industrial production, etc.) Emphasis on renewables, efficiency enhancement technologies, cost-reduction of energy as a key input, outward-looking competitiveness, environmental impacts, smart grids, fuel cells, renewables-sourced energy storage, etc.)
Environment and sustainability Pursue 'green' innovation and entrepreneurship, recycling, integrated waste management, climate change and environmental impact mitigation, disaster prevention and mitigation, oil spill fighting technologies, smart networks, reduction of carbon footprint, biodiversity protection, etc.
Transport and logistics Emphasis will be given on completion of a national transportation and logistics system, interconnectivity with the rest of the EU, outward-looking competitiveness, collaboration across the value chain and exploitation of interlinkages with other activities, smart and logistics systems, enhanced interoperability, accessibility and territorial cohesion/connectedness, sustainable transport.
Materials and Construction Enhanced outward-looking competitiveness, expansion of the value chain towards new materials (nanomaterials, advanced materials, polymers, etc.), smart materials, biomedical use materials, self-repairing materials, exploration of uses of new star materials such as graphene, multi-functional materials, 'hardware'-promising materials (thermomechanical features) and 'software'-promising ones (smart, self-repairing, feedback-providing, info-processing).
Culture, Tourism and Creative economy Explore and foster interactions across parallel value chains (tourism, culture, creative industries), exploiting the possibilities afforded by ICTs, imaging technologies, open innovation, branding, 'experience' tourism, holistic approach to tourism and cultural heritage, experimentation with living labs (virtual or not), etc.
