Unleashing Innovation in Thessaloniki

Unleashing Innovation in Thessaloniki

The Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) and the Dukakis Center at the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT) invite you to an online discussion.

Greek - American economic relations are multifaceted. Northern Greece, and the city of Thessaloniki in particular, have emerged as hubs where American companies are investing, thus unleashing the innovation potential of the country, and attracting the interest of young Greeks. This discussion will focus on analyzing the already announced investments and their importance for the city of Thessaloniki and beyond, in the context of the Greek - American economic partnership. The discussion is part of the series of events entitled “Greek-American Economic Relations and the Future of the Greek Economy” organized by ELIAMEP, with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Greece.
