The Nano/Microelectronics-based Systems and Applications Cluster (mi-Cluster), is the first innovation cluster in Greece; since 2006, it has shown significant development in a number of performance measures. It is largely characterized by an intensive export orientation and the design of innovative products worldwide. Furthermore, mi-Cluster has attracted domestic and foreign investment and has contributed to the employment of highly skilled workforce with positive multiplier effects on entrepreneurship, innovation and the national economy overall.
