JOIST Innovation Park had the honor of hosting Mr. Margaritis Schinas, Vice-President of the European Commission for the Promotion of the European Way of Life, on Saturday, June 1, 2024.

As he told local media, “In Larissa and Thessaly, many of the priority policies on the European agenda intersect. In these difficult times that the local economy and community are going through, Europe has been in solidarity from the very first moment and will continue to be in solidarity in the long term until there is a definitive recovery of all the damage and the consequences of the disastrous floods. ».
