The initiative of 13 Centres of Entrepreneurial and Technological Development is included in the list of 27 good practices, called BEST “Final Report of the Expert Group on supporting the
internationalization of SMEs”. The 13 centres operate in the capital of every prefecture of each region and contribute to providing up-to-date information and support for SMEs and aspiring
entrepreneurs, to fostering an entrepreneurial spirit and to monitoring competitiveness – forming an integrated network of business support structures. In addition, the centre promotes the
stimulation of groups of companies ready and able to embark on export activities to participate in common efforts for the promotion of their goods and services in international markets. This is
activated in coordination and cooperation with the Hellenic Foreign Trade Board.
