In the period 2006-2008, the pilot cluster program implemented by Corallia within the Operational Programme Competitiveness (3rd Community Support Framework), yielded very positive results through the establishment and expansion of the mi-Cluster and the milestones achieved by its cluster members, such as the double-digit growth rates in turnover (59,56%), employment (92,63%), exports (109,37%) and patent applications (137,50%).

In the period 2008-2013, Corallia implemented one of the most important interventions for the development of clusters in Greece, the "Phase-2 Microelectronics" programme, utilising again ERDF structural funds within the Operational Programme Competitiveness-Entrepreneurship under NSRF of 33mi€, targeting at a dedicated Aid Measure sub-programme to support enterprises. The assessment of the programme in 2013 certified that the members of the cluster exhibited, in the reference period, even higher growth rates (compared to the targets already set) in turnover (+145,34%), exports (+108,45%), employment (+69,70%), patent applications (+177,27%), investments from private sector (+269,34%) and joint PhDs in collaboration with the Academia (+106,00%).
