As we move forward in the 21 st century of rapid technological advancements, both the U.S. and the Hellenic Republic have to continue to look at and expand innovation brought on by the collaborative technological fusion of civilian, government, military and academia as an underpinning of national security strategies. Supporting this are various funded government and commercial programs to accelerate “dual use technologies” appropriate application in the Defense industrial base as well as the civilian commercial economic base of their respective nations. And yet none of this is possible without a sustained Youth STEM Pipeline and has to be taken in serious consideration. Join us as we discuss unique technology and program innovations spanning from the United States to the Hellenic Republic with seasoned professionals from both nations to discuss Incubators, Accelerators, Research and Development Centers, Open Innovation Centers, Imagineering technological advancements and business strategies related to technology and entrepreneurial activation. We hope this conversation contributes to a wave of expanded innovation and research in that regard, as well as strategies for companies and potential startups, through strategic partnerships, and innovative marketing & branding.
