Designing the transformation strategy of the Greek industry

The Commission supports Greece in terms of AS IS Analysis, recommendations, consultation with stakeholders and capacity building activities with a view to (a) developing a New Industrial Strategy and (b) building sufficient capacity and effective governance frameworks required to design and implement industrial policy. The project will lead to the adoption and implementation of a comprehensive industrial strategy aiming to enhance the resilience of the Greek industry, boost its competitiveness and growth.

In addition, the challenges facing the EU today, are also pressing in Greece: the need to pursue a Digital and Green transformation to build a resilient and  sound industrial base to cope with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and to enhance strategic autonomy.  These challenges call for a robust, diversified and targeted National Industrial Strategy which is pursued through this project. The project is closely linked to the EU’s industrial strategy, the EU chips act, REpowerEU initiative, updated industrial strategy.
