The knowledge economy can constitute an important field of growth in Greece, Alternate Minister for Research and Innovation Costas Fotakis said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) released on Monday.
He underlined that the country has high quality jobs, an attractive environment and opportunities that inspire scientific research. "Last Week, the 2nd Cycle of the Research - Create - Innovate programme with a total budget of 250 million euros was announced," he added.
