CRETE Well know as a sea and sun destination,
for its history and culture BUT During the last
30 years A high number of HEIs were
established Univ. of Crete (1977), FORTH
(1983), Technical Univ. of Crete (1984), MAICh
(1985), Inst. Marine Biology of Crete (1987),
NIAR (4 Inst), Technological Educational
Institute (TEI) Crete has a very strong capacity
in RD It is among the 4 strongest
catching-up, institutionally thick Objective
1 regions (EU, Impact of Structural Funds,
1999)

TECHNOLOGICAL BASE AND RD SUPPORT
11
  • COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES
  • Natural beauty and culture
  • Modern buildings and facilities to host
    technology companies
  • (TECHNOLOGY INCUBATOR)
  • Strong collaboration with HEI
  • Geographical position (crossroad to Europe Asia
    Africa)
  • High concentration of competencies in the areas
    of
  • Microelectronics
  • Polymers new materials
  • Lasers applications to medicine, E.L.F.
  • Medical equipment
  • Information telecommunication technologies
  • Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Biomedicine
  • Chemical engineering
  • Applied computational mathematics

12
  • WORKABLE APPROACHE FOR THE EXPLOITATION OF
    RESEARCH RESULTS
  • Due to the demand side limitations (small market,
    very traditional sectors)
  • Promoting a niche approach in areas where
    competitive advantages exist
  • Agrobiotechnology, DNA Chemistry/Biochemistry,
    Immunotherapeutics, Genetic Engineering, Health
    Telematics, Bioinformatics, ICT, Medical Optics
    and Instrumentation, Renewable Energy, Tourism

  • METHODOLOGY

1. Collaboration with the private sector for the
establishment of New Technology Based Firms 2.
Collaboration with VC firms for spin-off
financing 3. Institutional Enterprises
(FORTH Labs sell products and offer services to
the private and public sectors, e.g. DNA enzymes,
biotech products, laser applications) 4.
Establishment of New Technology Firms at
STEP-C 5. Licensing agreements 6. Support
students and researchers to start up new firms
