The Greek CORDIS web service is a special information gateway created to provide up-to-date information on important developments taking place in the areas of research, development and innovation. The service offers insights into the national research and innovation system and activities including: policies and programmes supporting public and private participation, legislative documents, science and technology indicators, activities for the promotion of scientific and technological culture in Greek society.
The site also outlines the Greek participation in European R&D programmes, including research projects, exploitable results and technological offers, in order to stimulate the links with the market. Moreover, it offers information on funding opportunities, key figures, official documents, national contacts and links to research institutions, universities, IRCs and more. This interface will be helpful for following the implementation of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) and new initiatives to make the enlarged European Research Area (ERA) a reality.
The Greek CORDIS web service, regularly updated and available in English and Greek, provides comprehensive coverage of current R&D issues, announcements of forthcoming events, interviews with key figures, publications and selected features periodically placed under the spotlight. By providing accurate and timely information, the site helps broaden the understanding of R&D and Innovation activities, enhances the participation in national and EU programmes and encourages a closer cooperation of the scientific, academic and business communities.
