Why is the programme needed

Launching Event on the implementation of co-financed Programmes of the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism 2009 -2014 (Athens, 28 Nov. 2013)

Why is the programme needed?

Investments in research and innovation are widely acknowledged as being a crucial driver for economic growth, for job-creation and to secure social and economic welfare. The research intensity in Greece is still far below the EU average as total research investments in relation to GDP. Moreover, the financing of social science in Greece is relatively low in comparison to other fields of research. 

The key motivation for the programme is to fund research on consequences of the rising social and income inequalities in Greece as a result of the on-going economic crisis. 

Key socio-economic challenges faced in Greece today include the sharp rise of unemployment, in particular among young people, deterioration of social and health services, of working conditions and living standards for parts of society.
