Access to Knowledge. Promoting Innovation. Supporting Business.

National e-Infrastructure 

We are a national infrastructure which collects, organises and preserves Greek scientific, research and cultural output (content and data) making it available for dissemination nationally and internationally. We provide wide-ranging information on the various research and innovation sectors, support participation in national and European programmes, promote innovative entrepreneurship and the exploitation of research findings, and produce statistics & indicators for research, development and innovation in Greece.

The e-infrastructure we use and develop serves a national role, it provides advanced electronic services in the world of research and innovation, fosters open access to knowledge and ensures access to users regardless of time and location.

Networks for science, culture, research and innovation.

Constantly expanding the network of organisations producing reliable scientific and cultural content (such as libraries, archives, museums, research centres) and focusing on societal goals, we are today developing a wide range of activities both on a national and a European level.

Activities and services  are funded by state resources, national and European programmes, contracts with private and public bodies, as well as income from the provision of services. The largest share of public funding is directed at the development of infrastructure and know-how with medium to long-term returns in areas related to Science and Technology e-content in the Knowledge Society.
