What about us ?

Clean Tech Innovation Hub, based in Patras Science Park, include a strong partnership between companies, university and research institutions aiming towards the research on advanced materials and in particular for energy applications. For example, silicon, plasmonic materials and photovoltaics are found among the main research topic.The Hub will give the opportunity to its members to know each other, to perform research on projects of mutual interest and apply towards EU funding.

The conception of innovation hubs is an initiative of Patras Science Park, which is an important opportunity for the Region of Western Greece, as it aims to strengthen research, technological development, innovative ideas and cooperation with interested business partners.Patras Science Park with this initiative aims to assist where possible, to the reintegration of the Region through the penetration of the existing research / innovation ecosystem (which is highly developed in Western Greece) to industry’s production, with the aim to increase competitiveness, create new jobs while limiting the phenomenon of brain-drain.

Using Renewable Energy

It is the energy that is collected from renewable resource, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportaion, and rular (off-grid) energy services.

The needs for more energy increase year after year as the demands of the technological progress and human’s activities are multiplicated. Renewables and natural gas are the bug winners in the race to meet energy demand growth until 2040, according to the latest edition of the World Energy Outlook, the International Energy Agency’s flagshop publication.

Founding Members

The Clean Tech Energy Hub is founded by Patras Science Park, by professors of the University of Patras with research activity in the field, and by important cmpanies in the Energy and materials sector with a view to creating a cradle promoting business activity and development of new products which will have a competitive advantage.
