To pursue its mission of fostering Greece’s economic growth the Institute for Hellenic Growth and Prosperity (IHGP) houses Centers of Excellence in the areas of Food, Tourism & Leisure; Logistics, Shipping & Transportation; and Sustainability; as well as the Research, Technology & Innovation Network (RTIN). These units target specific areas of the Greek economy, particularly those identified in the McKinsey group’s Greece: 10 Years Ahead report as poised for expansion in the coming decade – including transportation, tourism, leisure, agri-food and digital transformation – while promoting research and innovation within a framework for sustainable growth.
The IHGP seeks to sponsor research as well as scholarly and public discussions designed to promote the adoption of innovative and best international practice solutions to Greece’s economic challenges through such means as traditional publications, media productions (including social media), a bespoke website featuring archived publications and media productions, and conferences/seminars/symposia (real and virtual/electronic) that seek to bring public officials, academics (faculty and students), and business leaders together to address specific economic issues facing Greece and the world today.
