Celebrating 1 Year of JOIST: Empowering Innovators Everywhere

It’s been a remarkable journey for JOIST Innovation Park as we celebrate our first anniversary today. One year ago, on this memorable day in 2022, the Innovation Park opened its doors, hosting its first major hybrid conference with the participation of government officials and valuable actors of the Greek and pan-European innovation Ecosystems. This marked the beginning of a vibrant and dynamic phygital ecosystem that remains unabated to this day.

Since then, we have tirelessly fostered innovation, facilitated knowledge transfer, and built a powerful network across Europe. As we reflect on this important milestone, we want to express our gratitude to all businesses, startups, academic institutions, scientists, and innovation enthusiasts who have made JOIST Innovation Park their home this past year. Let’s recap our achievements and significant contributions to the innovation ecosystem.

We Created a Collaborative Environment

This year JOIST Innovation Park has emerged as a hub for fostering collaboration, exchanging experiences and knowledge. Within our workspaces, individuals and organisations can come together, share insights, and learn from one another. Through the various events, workshops, and conferences we hosted on our premises, we have helped cultivate a culture of continuous learning and growth in our community members.

Our commitment to fostering partnerships is one of JOIST’s recipes for success. Recognising the value of collaboration, we are actively facilitating connections between diverse stakeholders of the innovation community.
