Innovation Pathways for urban development- is an European project that aims to promote new business incubators in the construction and ICT sectors, and business accelerators in the manufacturing sector in Greece (Patras and Ioannina areas) and Italy (Puglia Region, Barletta and Bitonto areas). The project will make stronger the link between commercial and cultural associations, youth, labor market, public authorities and will reinforce the existing local economic networks. Pit Stop is a chance for the local entrepreneurs to strengthen the capacity to operate transnationally and internationally, by developing a circulation of new business model and promoting innovative spillover in several sectors. Thanks to the project, 4 innovative incubators will be implemented, 2 in Italy (Barletta and Bitonto) and 2 in Greece, Patras and Ioannina as educational high-tech place, with relevant equipment for 4 startup offices.
Pit Stop project is funded for € 900.952,00 by Interreg V-A Greece-Italy Programme 2014-2020 under the Priority Axis 1 – Innovation & competitiveness.
