Institute Of Entrepreneurship Development

Non-governmental organisation/association

The Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (iED) is a Greek organisation committed to the

promotion of innovation and the enhancing of the entrepreneurial spirit. By recognising

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 14-year long service, 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 organisations 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 utilised. Since 2005, the year of iED’s establishment, we have been oriented towards that
