INSTITUTE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT IED
The Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (iED) is a Greek NGO committed to the promotion of innovation and the enhancing of the entrepreneurial spirit. By recognizing entrepreneurship as a crucial factor for the development and cohesion of societies, we conduct research and we are in position to provide innovative solutions that facilitate the growth of healthy entrepreneurship and promote employment. In order to achieve our goal, we adopt an anthropocentric approach and cooperate with social, academic and business partners from Greece and abroad, aiming at producing and transferring know how, promoting entrepreneurial culture and enhancing the effectiveness and viability of enterprises. In our thirteen-year long activation, we have participated among others in the planning, implementation and evaluation of more than 100 National and European projects, something which gave us a unique insight in the practical aspects of implementing large scale co-funded projects and also provided us with an extremely wide network of collaborating organizations both from Greece and abroad. Our participation in the aforementioned projects gave us also the opportunity to produce and collect a large number of innovative tools and products on all aspects of entrepreneurship and lifelong learning, available to be further processed and utilized.
