PRAXI Network is an established technology transfer organization with long-standing experience in assisting SMEs and research organisations throughout Greece to achieve cross-border technological cooperation. It is a distinct administrative unit operating within the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH), the most active research organisation of Greece.
Between 1995 and 2008, PRAXI Network was nominated by the European Commission as one of Europe’s Innovation Relay Centers (IRC) acting therefore as one of the main Greek stakeholders in the field of technological innovation and cross-border technological cooperation. In parallel and since 1999, the General Secretariat for Research & Technology in Greece appoints PRAXI Network as the National Contact Point (NCP) for the 5th, 6th and 7th Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development and currently Horizon 2020, rendering it an official entity for information and advisory support for EU-funded research programmes.
